In this day and age, it seems like much of the focus in the automotive market is on electric vehicles. It’s hard to argue with their well-rounded abilities. After all, not only are they efficient. In addition, we see that they also can pack quite a heavy performance punch. After all, Tesla’s new Cybertruck is expected to be a 10-second vehicle straight out-of-the-box.
Luckily, for those of us who are fans of good old-fashioned combustion, this isn’t the only trend that’s been coming back. In addition, we have seen performance trucks rearing their heads once again. This seems like a trend that was ignored for the most part for a rather long time. In recent years, though, we’ve seen the high-performance application coming back to life in pick up trucks once again.
One of the longest living current examples would be that of the SVT Raptor. We see another high-performance off-road competitor in the Ram Rebel. One package even promises 707 supercharged horsepower as found in a Hellcat.
When it comes to the on-road segment, though, we haven’t really had that much to play with. This year, though, it looks like Shelby American is bringing a heavy stick to the table.
The Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150 is their answer to a market that has been begging for a street performance truck. The machine will be offered in a regular cab short bed. Featuring a custom suspension and 755 supercharged horsepower, this thing is going to be a force to be reckoned with. To top it off, it has all sorts of visual enhancements, both inside and out.
Speed Phenom pulled a quote from Shelby’s VP, Vince LaViolette:
“Our goal was to build the unrivaled ‘king of the road’ F-150 and a nightmare for any other truck,” said LaViolette. “And it is. We found the Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150 concept astonishingly fast during our testing. This concept certainly lives up to our initial vision for the truck.”
