1965 Shelby Cobra Backdraft


Check out this amazing factory built, Shelby Cobra by Backdraft Racing! The build took 2 years to complete, with completion early 2020 and just under 700 miles since finished. Almost every option was checked when placing the order. All the parts used are new, and it's the first of its kind to feature the Ford Performance Aluminator 5.2L XS Crate Engine. With a rating of 580 horsepower at 7,800 rpm, the new Aluminator 5.2 XS is the most powerful naturally aspirated modular crate engine ever built by Ford Performance. Power is put to the ground through a new Tremec T56 Magnum 6-Speed Manual Transmission and Backdraft Racing / BMW Independent Rear Suspension. The body is finished in Birch Green (Porsche Color) with Black Racing Stripes. Custom Forgeline CF205 Carbon Fiber Center Lock Wheels make this Cobra stand out from the rest. The CF205's super-lightweight carbon fiber barrel creates an attractive and visually distinctive rim that is 40% lighter than its aluminum equivalent. This Cobra has all the bells and whistles including the GT Body Option, Blackout Package, Willwood 4-Wheel Disc Brake Package, Power Steering, Power Brakes, and so much more! If you are looking for the baddest Backdraft Cobra around, look no further!
