Shelby American, a division of Carroll Shelby International, unveiled a pair of models at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The first is a Shelby GT500 Super Snake Wide Body. Based on the stock 2013 GT500, the car gets a performance boost from 662 to a street-legal 850 horsepower. It also meets the emission standards in 50 U.S. states.

The second model is a Shelby Focus ST. Tested extensively at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, this pocket rocket boasts a lower ride height thanks to a new Ford Racing suspension. Meanwhile, special wheels and tires improve grip and traction.
