If the 427-cubic-inch V8 wasn't enough, it also has two Paxton superchargers.
This particular car is one of two Super Snakes ever produced. The other was built for comedian Bill Cosby who once recalled just how difficult the car was to drive (and how much Shelby loathed Ferrari). Cosby eventually sold the car to a California dealer where it was later resold to a man named Tony Maxey in 1969. Maxey famously drove the car off of a cliff and into the Pacific Ocean in a fatal accident. The whereabouts of the wrecked Super Snake's remains are unknown, but they were rumored to have been sold to Shelby's rival Brian Angliss, the owner of Autokraft.
