Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake on display at Getaway DVD release

Those who bring a toy to the Dec. 14, 2013, Toy Drive hosted by the Carroll Shelby Foundation in Los Angeles will receive limited edition Getaway posters autographed by Selena Gomez, Ethan Hawk and Jon Voight. The film stars a Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake built by Shelby American and made its nationwide debut on August 30, with support from Carroll Shelby Licensing. The free event hosted by CSF on 14th Dec at its Gardena, Calif. location from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m will feature cars from Carroll Shelby’s personal collection, raffles, giveaways and more.


“The Shelby GT500 Super Snake is an international symbol of pure American performance,” said Tracey Smith, president of Carroll Shelby Licensing. “’Getaway’ marked the first time a modern GT500 Super Snake held a starring role. We’re celebrating the DVD launch of this film at the December Toy Drive by displaying Shelby Super Snakes, including the only one used for the audio portion of the film. While supplies last, we’ll also give a ‘Getaway’ poster to anyone who contributes a gift to the Foundation’s toy drive.”

“Car enthusiasts made ’Getaway’ the most popular film of the year featuring a Shelby muscle car,” said Courtney Solomon, director and producer of the movie. “Ever since the film debuted, we’ve been asked when it would be available on DVD. Now everyone can share this movie’s magic with friends and family during the holiday season. It’s the next best thing to finding a Shelby GT500 Super Snake in your stocking.”
