I’ve been getting a lot of requests to talk about the car I won Bullrun Season 2 on Speed TV in. For those of you who aren’t familiar with me or the show, I participated and won the reality TV Show Bullrun on Speed TV for Season 2.
In the show, my friend Spiro and I piloted a very rare 725HP 2007 Shelby GT 500 Super Snake. What makes this particular car so rare is due, in part, to its limited production. For each model year Shelby only produced 1000 Super Snakes and out of that number only hardtops were fitted with 725HP engine modification. The convertibles had to settle for 600HP engine mod’s due to the increase in torque the body sustains. About 500 or so could have gotten the 725HP option but not everyone did as this option voided the manufacturer’s warranty and obviously cost more money. If you add colors and options into the mix there aren’t many 725HP White/Black GT500 Super Snakes out there.
With that being said, the Super Snake is hands down the meanest, fastest car I have ever driven and will ever want to drive. It is uncontrollably fast and literally makes you feel invincible when driving in it. There are very few cars you will run into, either on the track or on the street, that are faster than the 725HP Super Snake. The Super Snake looks mean and intimidating and can back it all up! Everybody on the road wanted to race just to see the car in action. It got so bad, my wife refused to ride in the car with me anymore.
It’s difficult for me to say if the $38K upgrade was worth it. I personally did the upgrade because I have always been a big fan of the 1967 GT500 and thought it was my chance to invest in a collectible early on. Unfortunately, with the economy the way it is, the value of this car diminished and it certainly didn’t help to be getting 3 mpg either. You read right; I was getting 3 mpg when I got on the gas! I’m kind of proud of that in a weird sick way, not many of you can say you’ve gotten 3 mpg’s in your car, right?
