427 Shelby Cobra Vs. GT500 Super Snake - 2 SHELBYS and 2 HOT LAPS

https://www.instagram.com/_autoedit_/ This just keeps getting better! After driving the 2011 Mustang GT500 Super Snake through the canyons near where I live...I was able to do a few hot laps in it on the road course outside Las Vegas Motor Speedway. And to make the day even better, I was able to do some laps in a 427 Shelby Cobra. Thanks to Gary Paterson from Shelby North America for letting me wheel these cars during our photo and video shoot for Hot Rod Magazine when we had a blast trying to find out which is the "Baddest Shelby Of All Time". Look for that video at youtube/hotrodmagazine. Don't watch this video expecting to see these cars at their performance limit...I'm not that guy. I'm just an average dude with a great opportunity to share this awesome experience and give my thoughts so fellow car guys can get a true feel for wheeling these amazing machines.
