Description
 
The Shelby Cobra is probably one of the most iconic sports car of all time. It has been the dream of many enthusiasts through the years, and is still today one of the most desirable cars. Carroll Shelby, the famous Texan race driver and tuner, had found the magic recipe by fitting powerful Ford V8 engine in the small AC roadster. The most extreme version, the 427 will be fitted a monstruous 7 Liters Ford V8 rated at 425 HP. Enough to make the Shelby Cobra 427 one of the fastest car on Earth, even today. As an icon, the Shelby Cobra has been one the most copied car in the world. Everything has been seen on this special market, the best replicas and more often the worst cars have been built by many small firms all over the world. In the late 90's, Shelby, the creator of the legendary Cobra, decided to produce a series of CSX4000 continuation Cobra, with VIN following the one's of the last genuine cobras made in the sixties which were carrying CSX3000 VIN. These CSX4000 Cobra are of course everything the 65 models were and even more. They are built on a 65 like chassis but much stronger. Other enhancements have been made, like a better cooling system, a modern gearbox, enhanced suspensions (built like the original ones), and a better steering. The car we are proud to offer is a Cobra 427 S/C built by Shelby. It is one of the very first built in the Shelby Las Vegas factory in 1997. The engine is an all aluminium Shelby 427 FE dynoed at 550 HP. The gearbox is a 5 speed Tremec (TKO600). The car is currently in very good condition and has been driven only 9100 miles from new. As a Shelby, the car is registered as a 1965 with an original VIN, and is delivered a manufacturer's statement of origin, certifying the car is 1965. This is truly unique in the Cobra world, as only the CSX4000 are delivered with a COC, a VIN compliant with the original ones, and can thus be registered in Europe (including France) as 1965 Shelby Cobra. If there were only one Cobra to buy today, except the original ones whose prices are far below 600.000 EUR, it would be the CSX4000 continuation. This is the only one to be fully compliant with the original one, with original registration and VIN, and for a competitive price compared to replicas. And as a Shelby built cobra, the car is listed in the Shelby registry. This stunning cobra is available in the USA. The price includes shipping to any European country as well as all European or Swiss taxes paid. For our French customers, the car will be delivered with a French standard carte grise as a 1965 427 Shelby Cobra.
