Hi

Just bought a 2011 Super Snake, modified suspension, rims, tires, interior and exterior, with 800 HP, carbon bits and more, a real fun loose street car, first owner only put 400 miles on it, may be less expensive alternative to waiting for 2020 GT 500?

Won't be anywhere near the performance of the new gt500.. IMO.. The list is a mile long of all the things that are better on the 2020 500. Hp wise sure. performance wise, suspension, seats, electronics and comparing any trans to the new 7 speed dct won't even be in the same ball park..

BMF, I agree the current upgrades of the 2020 will outperform this 8 year old reptile, should run quicker lap times. You gotta drive this on the street, it's in Demon HP range and so squirrely and fun, yet has some decent handling capabilities. I think prices are down, 60-70K range and Super Snakes are available now, have the whole summer to enjoy it. I would like to try a 7 dct, yes.

Great looking car. Yeah, a little prehistoric but the best prehistoric you will ever find.

Personally, I like the aesthetics of the S197 GT500 better than the S550.

S550 chassis is SOOO much better than S197 (dual front ball joints, IRS, much stiffer). You have bought a fantastic car, and enjoy it (we have an 08GT 500), however, the upcoming GT500 would destroy it on a road course.

Steve, enjoy her! With only 400 miles she’s not even broke in yet. Really like the color!

Just put new Michelin Super Sports on my 2013 GT500. My favorite around town car to drive.

True, but who buys a Super Snake for road coarse duty?
