A 2009 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake is being offered at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction with the entire hammer price going to a charity for Ukraine emergency aid. The Shelby GT500 is from the George Shinn Collection and the sale benefits the Samaritan’s Purse, which aids victims of natural disasters, war, poverty, and famine.

This 2009 Ford Shelby GT500, CSM No. 095S0309, has 6,484 actual miles and is powered by a supercharged 5.4-liter 4-cam V8 engine with a cold air intake system and a Borla cat-back exhaust.  The engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and a 3.73:1 rear end.

The Shelby/Eibach suspension system has a Shelby Baer disc brake set up with 6-piston calipers. It rides on Shelby-designed Alcoa 20-inch aluminum wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tires.

It has a Vapor Silver Metallic exterior complemented by Super Snake badges, a carbon-composite hood with full-width scoops and hold-down pins, front and rear brake cooling ducts, matching sill stripes, and full-length longitudinal stripes.
