The story goes like this:
One day in 1966 Bill Cosby bumped into Carroll Shelby at a department store. Cosby was in the series I Spy. Shelby liked the show and Cosby.
Shelby chewed Cosby out for driving foreign exotic cars and prohibited Cosby from driving another foreign car. Cosby’s reply was that he had to have a car that went at least 180 MPH. Shelby said he was making a car that would go 200 MPH and made him one of the 2 Shelby Cobra Super Snake 427's known to ever exist. This one with an automatic.
The car was the CSX 3303 which was modified from a street legal 427 model to a 427 Cobra Semi-Competition (S.C.) after shipment from a European Tour back to Shelby in America.This happened sometime in early to mid-1967. This CSX3303, the Super Snake was reclassified as a 427 Cobra Semi-Competition (S.C.)
One night Shelby had his man Barry Galloway pay Cosby a visit at his home.Galloway rang the doorbell and handed Cosby the keys to the Super Snake. The twin Paxton supercharged 427, twin Holley Carb, 11:5:1 compression, Gaurdsman blue Super Snake with 900 HP and a 200 MPH speedometer was sitting in his driveway ready to drive. The 2280 lb car had a plaque signed by Shelby on the dash that read,”This car is guaranteed to do 200 mph.”
Cosby drove it once around the block and promptly gave it back to Shelby, fully paid for.He admits being scared to death driving this machine, as it was to fast for any sane person to drive.
The experience generated plenty of comic material for a Bill Cosby Album called, Bill Cosby 200 M.P.H.
The history of the Ford Mustang extends more than 50 years, and in that span, a the muscle car’s legacy has been defined by a number of custom tunes and special edition models. As rich as that history is though, there is one model that trumps them all, largely because Shelby only built one model of it as a prototype. That model was the 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake, and to this day, it remains as the most expensive Mustang ever sold when it fetched $1.3 million at a Mecum auction back in 2013.

Either Marylanders have a lax definition of what constitutes a hybrid or, as we suspect, this Dodge Challenger driver just doesn't care. He or she wedged the muscle car between a Toyota Prius and Honda Accord hybrid in a clearly marked “Hybrid” parking spot.
