So Many Mustangs: Shelby GT500 Super Snake

There are so many Mustang variations that have been featured as Hot Wheels new models lately. The 2011 model year alone saw 3 different Mustang models.

'07 Shelby GT 500
One of the Mustang examples from the 2011 new models is the Shelby GT500 Super Snake. Thinking back, we have seen this body style in a few different versions in the recent past. The first appearance would be the Mustang GT Concept from 2004. Then in 2005 we saw the '05 Mustang GT.  This was followed up by ‘07 Shelby GT-500 as a 2008 First Edition.(pictured above)

2010 Mustang GT
 Then in 2009 we got the 2010 Mustang GT.
2010 Ford Shelby GT500
Shelby GT 500 Super Snake

2010 gave us the '10 Ford Shelby GT 500. And now in 2011 we get the Shelby GT500 Super Snake.

Coming soon: 2012 Laguna Seca Mustang.

I don't know about you, but I could probably not be able to tell which model is which without seeing them side-by side. The change to the striping is interesting. I appreciate the different hood scoops and vents, and I just noticed the rear side window is removed in the Super Snake. In the end I realize that I am a "details oriented" individual and so if the only change is a tweak to the fog lights, it is pretty cool to see a company like Mattel commit to bringing us those little changes.
