2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake Wide Body and Ford Shelby Focus ST were just unveiled at this year's North American Auto Show in Detroit. The two vehicles are with enhanced performance and visual characteristics.

First of all, the stock 662 horsepower of the GT500 were increased up to the street-legal 850 horsepower (625 kW). The vehicle is equipped 13 inch rear and 10 inch front wheels that are wrapped in rubber, so that the car handles like a supercar.

Furthermore, there is an optional wide body package which gives the Super Snake much more traction and makes it with racing characteristics. Customers can choose between Satin Black, Gloss White, Silver, Blue and Red stripes. Offered now for the first time, wheel options include a rear-only or front and rear "wide body" packages.
