2021 Shelby F-150 Super Snake bites with 775 hp, 0-60 mph in 3.45 seconds

On the tail end of Monterey Car Week, Shelby American unveiled the latest version of its Super Snake street truck. It’s based on the redesigned 2021 Ford F-150, and boasts over 775 horsepower. It’s available to order now through select Ford dealers.

A supercharged version of the familiar Ford “Coyote” 5.0-liter V-8 provides that power, which is a 5-hp increase over the previous Super Snake, according to a Shelby press release. The engine breathes through a Borla exhaust and enlarged carbon fiber air intake. Shelby didn’t mention any changes to the transmission, so it’s likely the same 10-speed automatic used with the V-8 in the stock F-150.

Shelby plans to offer the F-150 Super Snake in two-door and four-door configurations, and claims the two-door, four-wheel drive version is capable of 0-60 mph in 3.45 seconds, as well as 0-100-0 mph in 8.3 seconds. Those numbers are unchanged from the previous Super Snake, which was based on the outgoing-generation F-150.

Other modifications include a lowered suspension and upgraded brakes, with 6-piston front calipers, and aftermarket rear pads and rotors. Trucks ride on 22-inch wheels, and get a body kit complete with a jutting front splitter.

Shelby only plans to build 300 of each body style, for a total of 600 trucks. Pricing starts at $98,690, including the cost of a 2021 Ford F-150 XLT 4×4 donor vehicle. The company will also build a truck without the supercharged V-8, which drops output to 400 hp, and the base price to $90,790. If you want your 775-hp F-150 lifted rather than lowered, Shelby will do that too, albeit with a $114,980 starting price.
