427" Stroker Small Block Shelby Cobra
427" Stroker Small Block Ford, the whine you hear is a Gear Drive which kind of gives it a really cool sound. The whine combined with the sidepipes makes for a fun experience behind the wheel....I like cars with a good sound but not Obnoxiously "HEY LOOK AT ME!!" loud...when you get it right, everybody smiles when you pull up or go by.
It's funny that in the video the car looks purple and white but to see it with your eyes the car looks almost black with just hints of the blackberry pearl reflecting off the curves and the stripes are a silver pearl. The color flips from the blueish purple to a reddish 'black cherry' color depending onthe time of day but from a distance it looks black.
You can tell (like my 517" Charger) that Stroker motors (Small Blocks AND Big Blocks) built-right will rev VERY QUICKLY and provide you with both Great Torque and Awesome horsepower. Build the bottom end for Torque and put really good flowing heads for the horsepower, it's an awesome combination every time. Thanks for Watching!

Contemporary 427SC Cobra
This car is my homage to the legendary 427SC Cobras and Carroll Shelby, a very accurate replica with stunning Iris Blue paint, Wimbledon White racing stripes and a Ford big block, 428 Cobra Jet engine. It is a unique offering for a superb driving machine, a veritable piece of American ingenuity and sports car history.
For those who know. Among knowledgeable Cobra aficionados, the Contemporary Classic Cobra is regarded as one of the finest replicas ever produced because of the accuracy of the body and round-tube frame, quality of the engineering and construction, the authenticity of its appearance and the scintillating feel of the driving experience.
This car features the famous big-block Ford 428FE Cobra Jet (an improvement over the 428FE Police Interceptor motors that were used alternately with the 427FE side-oiler in original 427 Cobras). It has been balanced and blueprinted, completely rebuilt from the block up with all new bearings and the finest components. No expense has been spared. Note that all original 427 Cobras used Ford FE engines, both 427s and 428s. To achieve authenticity in a Cobra replica you need to have an FE engine and this immaculate 428FE Cobra Jet meets that requirement. And when you put your foot into it, it sounds ferocious and things start happening very quickly.
Made in the USA, this is an extremely strong, double-bonded, steel-tube reinforced Contemporary fiberglass monocoque body with thoroughly authentic proportions, the firm's body molds and tooling were created from the founder's original SC Cobra, CSX3045.
You shouldn't miss this opportunity to own one of the most breathtakingly beautiful Contemporary 427 SC Cobras ever constructed. It's a first-class show-stopper, a true time machine that will provide you with high-spirited driving and is sure to etch a permanent smile on your face.

Update: This Cobra has been sold and is now on its way to a its new owner in Niederwil, Switzerland - 8/8/2011
PS: The microphone is picking up the engine bay noise of the solid lifters as well as the sound from the side pipes, a bit further away from the mic. This is my first attempt at a video on YouTube and I swear the source footage clips aren't as jerky as the final video. But what the heck! I hope you enjoy.
