Category: Rides

Engineered for high-speed Thunderbolt tire testing by Goodyear, this American muscle classic is a stunning brute that’s sure to be the main attraction no matter where you drive it. Built to be an absolute savage on any track, this 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake is ready to continue its legendary life with the right driver.

Beneath its Le Mans blue hood striping, it’s packing a rebuilt GT40 Mk II 427 engine with 600 hp and the ability to push this demon to 170 mph. Along with its lightweight engine, it has a special rear axle, transmission, forged crank, and Le Mans rods to allow it to sustain 6,000 rpm, making it capable of racing at Le Mans. The iconic vehicle was driven at an average of 142 mph for 500 miles during demonstration laps and retained 97% of its original tire tread. Several years after successfully testing the Thunderbolt tires, the vehicle had a light restoration. This one-of-one prototype with the heart of a Le Mans champion is a rare treasure for any car aficionado.
