Debuting in Ford's main inside display area at the 2019 SEMA Show is Shelby American's latest concept vehicle, the 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 Dragon Snake. If the Dragon Snake name sounds familiar to you, it should. The Dragonsnake name was used in the 1960s (all one word back then) when Shelby American offered a drag-racing version of its Shelby Cobra model. Given the new Ford Shelby GT500's dual-clutch transmission and stout 5.2L engine, Shelby American reimagined Ford's new Mustang supercar for that same mission.

There was the usual array of first-gen Camaros for the F-body enthusiasts, and there was a great mix of Chevelles, Novas, and Tri-Fives, and even a good amount of custom full-size Chevys. One car that is getting major attention is the totally custom-fabricated 1959 El Camino called "Hulk-Camino." It's one of those "love it or hate it" cars due to the extensive bodywork, but after all, this is SEMA and pretty much anything goes. And like we said, it's all about getting attention.

Nov 5, 2019 - Shelby American is always here to make things just a bit more extreme, and it's done it again for SEMA this year. The GT500 is getting even quicker, and an F-150 is getting 755 horsepower. Shelby American has one badass truck ready for the 2019 SEMA show .

The Shelby team's design for the Dragon Snake adds more power to the car (800+ hp is the number being tossed around), revises the suspension for maximum grip and straight-line acceleration for drag-racing prowess, lightens the car, retunes the DCT transmission, and modifies the bodywork, including unique wheels. A widebody option, popular with past and present Super Snake Mustang builds, is also being considered. In addition to the engine tune, Shelby American added high-flow catalytic converters, new lightweight glasswork, and other innovations to ensure it ends up in the winner's circle of any drag race it enters.

"While our current four-door Shelby trucks are extremely popular, hardcore fans dreamed of a two-door in the spirit of the great 1960s muscle cars," Patterson said. "After an event where we were besieged with those requests, Vince LaViolette and I began penciling out a Shelby Super Snake Sport over dinner. We took that idea to trusted partners, suppliers, enthusiasts, and team members to collaborate on the design and content. The Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150 is that vision come to life as a concept vehicle."
