The big block Shelby Cobra is considered by many to be the most
iconic American sports car in history. When GM began to work on a
new big block Corvette and Ferrari increased the power of the V12
powered GTO's, Shelby and Ford Motor Company decided to shoehorn
the mighty 427 FE motor into the Cobra.
To fit the 427 into his Cobra, Carroll Shelby completely redesigned
the frame, body and chassis. Shelby developed a new independent
suspension, fortified the frame to handle the increase in torque
and modified the body to fit bigger wheels and tires. Shelby
American resumed production of the Cobra 427 S/C (originally as the
CSX4000-series) in 1997 and they're available today in aluminum or
It's a true Shelby that, when equipped with a proper Ford 427,
delivers the performance expected of genuine American supercar. It
can go from 0-60 MPH under four seconds and run a 12 second quarter
mile in the hands of an experienced driver.
This cobra embraces the world's first computer designed chassis
with Dual A-arm, four wheel coil-over independent suspension. The
roadster has improvements while staying true to its originality.
New improvements also include a stronger steel frame, better alloys
and better cooling and heating.
