Galpin Widebody Shelby GT500 Super Snake

Last week we showed you the widebody 2012 Mustang Boss 302 built by Galpin Auto Sports, but it’s not the only Mustang that they will be displaying at the 2011 SEMA Show. The GAS team has also been busy building this widebody Shelby GT500 Super Snake, which we caught still under construction at their shop in Van Nuys, CA.

The one-off Super Snake features Galpin’s hand-made steel body panels, lightweight three-piece aluminum wheels with Super Snake center caps. Making the car all the more impressive is that the 5.4-liter V8 produces an astounding horsepower thanks to a Kenne Bell liquid-cooled 3.6L supercharger system that has been installed under the hood. The car will surely sound the part as well, featuring electric exhaust cutouts that can bypass the mufflers.

We’ll bring you more details and photos of the finished widebody Super Snake when it debuts at SEMA. Until then, check out our photos of the car at Galpin’s shop in the gallery below.
