It’s been 50 years since the Shelby Cobra first got a 427 V8, and to celebrate the occasion, Shelby American is producing a limited production run of 50 units.
Shelby is producing the car with two different bodies- one in fiberglass and one in aluminum. The aluminum bodied car will be available in either the Guardsman Blue with Wimbledon White Stripes or in Polished Aluminum(pictured.) Fiberglass cars will only be offered with the Guardsman Blue and Wimbledon White Stripes exterior.
The cars will come devoid of any engine or transmission, and the onus will be on the buyer to have both of those fitted. The 50th anniversary edition will employ more modern technology than its predecessor a half century ago. The car will see a stiffer frame with a dual A-arm suspension, in addition to modern brakes and coil-over shocks.
The car goes on sale the morning of January 13th, and pricing on the fiberglass model will start at $119.995, and the aluminium model will begin at $179,995.
