Lot #711 - Racing legends Carroll Shelby and Don "The Snake" Prudhomme joined forces to build the ultimate street legal dragster. Only 100 Prudhomme Super Snake packages are being offered by Shelby Autos, and this is the one and only concept car used to launch the program. The two icons unveiled it during a reception at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum in February 2009. The Prudhomme Edition Super Snake concept car is powered by a 5.4L Supercharged engine that makes 800hp on race fuel or 750hp on 93-octane pump gas. The concept also includes a Kenne Belle modified air intake sticking out of the hood in the tilt front end, a 5-point impact safety harness and Borla side exhaust system. A front and rear adjustable BMR racing suspension and drag tires are included. Intended to be a true street legal drag car, the build team at Shelby Autos used the championship careers of Carroll Shelby and Don Prudhomme as their inspiration. Shelby was twice named "Sports Illustrated's" Driver of the Year. Prudhomme's successful racing career included winning the NHRA funny car championship 4 times and he was the first funny car driver to exceed 250 mph. Prudhomme drove a Shelby Super Snake dragster for the 1968 NHRA season.
