Shelby American to debut two new models in Detroit

2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake

In a posting on the company's website, Shelby American has confirmed plans to unveil two new models at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

Accordingly, the first car will be a 2013 Super Snake with a wide body kit that "will allow you to put a lot of tire on the car, allowing you to put a 345 or even a 355 wide tire on the back."

The second model is still a mystery, but Gary Patterson, Shelby American vice president of operations, said "While I can’t talk about any Detroit details now, I will quote Carroll from last year: I think you're going to see the industry going completely to small engines with turbochargers. That's the only way you can get the mileage that the government is going to be demanding."

In related news, the brand will also offer the wide body option for all the 2005 to 2009 Ford Mustangs.
