2012 Shelby GT500 Super Snake

Something strange happens when you see this car in person: It glares back at you. In a year when every brand seems to be injecting menace into at least one of its new models, the Super Snake variant of the Shelby GT500 skips menace and heads straight for intimidation. Outside, the sneering, fully redesigned hood is the focal point, with a wide intake snout that helps cool the 800-horsepower engine. Inside, every detail feels dangerous, from the sterile white shifter knob to the steel cobra etched into the steering wheel. At roughly $90,000 for the car-plus-package, the Super Snake is supervillain chic at regular villain prices.
