Last summer Shelby American announced it will open a state-of-the-art facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, where all operations, from the production process to the Shelby museum and the gift shop, will be housed under one roof.
With the new Heritage Center already opened to the public since early last month, we're now happy to report that the very first Shelby vehicle built at the new facility - a 2014 GT500 Super Snake - rolled off the assembly line. Finished in the gorgeous Grabber Blue, the V8-powered musclecar will remain with the Shelby Automotive Museum in Southern California.

"The 2014 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake represents one of the greatest collaborations between Carroll Shelby, Shelby American and Ford Motor Company,” said Neil Cummings, co-Trustee of the Carroll Hall Shelby Trust. “Placing this particular car in the new Carroll Shelby Automotive Museum by Carroll’s trust will symbolize that strong relationship, as well as remind the public that the organizations he founded are still influencing the world."

As a brief reminder, the 2014 Shelby GT500 Super Snake can be had from $28,995 with 662 hp and from $39,995 with 850 supercharged horses. Pricing doesn't include the base vehicle.
