Description for Shelby Cobra Replica 1965

The 1965 Shelby Cobra is an international icon of speed. But more than just look the part, there are a few cut-above replicas that can deliver champion-level performance. This Superformance car with its fully independent suspension, lightweight construction, and 600 hp 427 V8 proves that this is the top of the Cobra hierarchy.Superformance is one of the most accurate Cobra manufacturers, and they took great pains to get the shape exactly right before they started pulling molds. As a result, this super slick little roadster looks like a million bucks, with great lines and an awesome shine that definitely makes it stand out. The red paint has a stellar finish that makes this a coupe you'll be proud to show off. Mixed in with that great paint is a set of white racing stripes, because this one truly is a competition-bred machine. Details like the driver roll hoop, racing gas cap, jacking stubs, and the bold side pipes not only add serious flair, but also suggest that it was built for combat. And of course, no one will mistake you for anything but a speed machine thanks to the iconic Halibrand-style knock off wheels and staggered tire size for added aggression.The interior definitely gets the Shelby attitude right, with wrap-around buckets, racing seatbelts, and a fire extinguisher on the rear panel. The driver gets the full Cobra experience with the three-spoke AC wood steering wheel, and the Mustang shift lever that's been reversed to fit the driver perfectly. The full Smiths gauge package is Cobra correct, right down to the reverse position speedometer. If you do get caught in the rain, the full folding top and side curtains are a great friend to get you home, and the tonneau is nice for early mornings on the track. There's no radio, no power windows, no A/C this is a competition machine that's all about the driving experience and nothing else needs to get in the way.Speaking of the driving experience, the best part of a Cobra is always under the hood. The engine bay has that perfect shiny appearance that will certainly attract crowds... but this is a Cobra, and its primary mission is to be the fastest sports car around. That's why beneath the flash is the substance of a big block built for some serious performance. It's a side oiler 427 cubic-inch V8 built by Southern Automotive authorities in blue oval big block performance. The motor includes dual FAST fuel injection, Edelbrock Performer heads, aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans, and ceramic headers. The full package is rated around 600 horsepower, and the thunderous road of those side pipes do a terrific job of announcing your power superiority. Best of all, you are still going to be braking in this monster motor considering there is less than 1,600 miles on the whole build. The power reliably gets to the ground thanks to the stout Tremec TKO600 five-speed, feeding a limited slip rear end running versatile 3.73 gears. On the road or racetrack, you'll instantly feel the confidence the fully independent suspension with adjustable coilovers gives you. There's even four-wheel disc brakes so your stopping power will match your performance driving.Complete with owner's manual, this one is competitive fun on the street or track. A Cobra is a dream for a lot of us, so hurry up before a well-sorted, low-mileage, and speedy Superformance build gets snatched up by someone else. Call today!!!
