Lot #741 - This is CSE-SS015, a continuation GT500SE Super Snake produced by Riley Performance Motorcars, a licensed Shelby builder. Riley Performance, under an agreement with Carroll Shelby Licensing, is permitted to produce a very limited number of GT500SE continuation Shelbys. This particular car is only one of four to date. It is powered by a 790hp all-aluminum supercharged licensed Shelby (1531XSC) big-block 427ci FE engine mated to a Tremec TKO 5-speed transmission and nodular 9-plus rear-end designed to deliver more horsepower to the rear wheels. It is equipped with front and rear coilover suspension, Baer brakes and the Chris Alston Chassisworks power steering system significantly improves handling and performance on the street or the track. The Shelby-style wheels from American Racing and Nitto tires provide both style and performance. The exterior styling is further enhanced by sequential taillights, the Cobra-style LeMans gas lid, Shelby insignia and PIAA front lights. The beautiful PPG Vivid Black with Hellfire Red Candy stripes provides an even more striking appearance. The interior includes the GT500SE badging, Shelby insignia gauges, embroidered Shelby center console and the package tray with the matching spare tire. The 5-point racing harness and leather interior provide both comfort and safety. The updated air-conditioning system keeps the interior cool and the stereo supplies great sound without drowning out the roar of the engine.
