If you want to drive a fast vehicle then you might think that your best option would be the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, with 707 horses. The Hellcat is a superb choice but then Shelby American has thrown a spanner in the works with the Super Snake Package, which is available for the 2017 Ford Mustang GT. With the higher performance supercharger you would get 750 horses, which beats the Challenger. However at the same time it also beats the Challenger Hellcat on price.
The Super Snake package for the 2017 Ford Mustang GT brings a vintage look along with 670 horses and a price tag of $71,000. The Dodge Challenger Hellcat on the other hand offers up 707 horses and you can get it for $10k less at $61k.
The 2017 Shelby Super Snake Mustang was designed for the celebration of the 50th anniversary and this is a muscle car offering high performance and a look that is unique for a high price tag. The base MSRP isn’t actually too bad as it comes in at $36,795 but then you do have to fork out for the Ford Mustang GT too. This means that in total it is going to cost you around $70, 890 before any options.
The 2017 Super Snake Ford Mustang GT starts with the V8 5 litre engine but the output is increased from 435 to 670 horses thanks to the supercharger and the exhaust system from Ford Performance. You can also go for the higher model with the supercharger setup and this gives out 750 horses. Of course the upgrade to 750 horses costs another $6,500.
So you could go for the 750 horses of the 2017 Super Snake Ford Mustang GT or you could save yourself thousands and go for the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and its 707 horses.
