1965 427 Shelby Cobra Replica
21/02/2007 - 09/09/2007
Probably the most romantic car in the automotive industry, the Cobra is a pure example of the American way of perceiving power in a sports car. A 7 liter V8 delivered a minimum of 450 bhp in street version through a 4 speed manual gearbox. Although the 427 Shelby Cobra was never a racing success, failing one of its main goals: the Le Mans cup, the brutal nature and violent handling placed it on one of the most respectable steps in the auto history.
Today's replicas are almost identical, but better handling versions of the very high priced original. Our replica develops a cunning 420 bhp from a 5.7 liter Ford based V8/V8 base.
