An interesting truck has been unveiled at the 2013 SEMA show called Snakbit. The truck is a collaboration between KISS' gene Simmons and his wife Shannon Tweed along with help from Ford. The 1956 Ford F 100 truck gets styling reminiscent of a late model Shelby GT 500.

The truck has a 550 hp supercharged V-8 engine and six speed manual gearbox. The truck has been lengthened by 5 inches and has a billet machined floor that mimics wood. The interior of the truck is heavily customized with two-tone leather and lots more.

The truck is very interesting even if it looks a lot like a storm trooper for Return of the Jedi. I can only imagine how much work went into making the front end look like it does.
