Classics Revealed: The Shelby Cobra
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The Shelby Cobra is perhaps the World's most
iconic and thus copied car. Less than 1000 original Ford AC Cobras were
built by Carroll Shelby. Tens of Thousands of copies of the original 289
and 427 AC Cobras exist with most of them being "kit cars" copies. In this
exclusive TFLcar video we visit Superformace in Southern California to
learn why the Shelby Cobra is such an iconic race car and automobile.
Superformance along with Carroll Shelby's own Shelby Automobiles, Inc build
what many call "Continuation Cars". These are brand new Shelby Cobra
roadsters and coupes that have official Shebly CSX serial numbers. They are
of course not the original series of Shelby Cobra cars which now demand
hundreds of thousands of dollars by collectors when they do come up for
sale , but they are also not copies. They are simply new Shelby Cobras
built as a continuation of the original series of cars. In other words,
these are new Shelby Cobras. If you are a fan of Carroll Shelby and his
cars you'll like this video as we get deep into the history of what many
believe is America's most beautiful and iconic race car.
Shelby Cobra LOUD start and acceleration!!
I spot this vicious facroty 5 shelby cobra in Wrentham, MA. the owner was
really cool, and as you can see from the video, offered me a ride in his
beast of a car! i love the way this V8 gurgles when he starts up, then how
it backfires after he accelerates down that straight! Comment, rate, and

AC Cobra drag race: can an XCS Fusion outrun a Jaguar XKR-S?
Not all AC Cobra replicas are created equal. Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe
pitches a 550bhp XCS Fusion against a Jaguar XKR-S to find out just how
potent they can be.

The XCS Fusion Cobra replica has been design by the team behind the Dax
Rush, and features the patented anti-roll system from the aforementioned
Caterham Seven clone. It also happens to feature a tubular spaceframe
chassis and switchable electrically assisted steering. Oh, and a Chevrolet
LS3 V8, which with the aid of a Supercharger, develops up to 639bhp. And the car
weighs 1080kg, resulting in a Bugatti Veyron-beating 590bhp per tonne.
It's quick, certainly, but can it beat the Jaguar XKR-S in a drag race?

Shelby Cobra - Way Too Much Fun!
Go to: http://www.kitcarconnection.com - I spotted my first Shelby Cobra
427 S/C back in the summer of 1979. I knew INSTANTLY that one day I had to
have one of these cars. I have now enjoyed mine since 2005 and she is way
more fun than I ever would have expected.
The car is a Factory Five Racing MkII Roadster and was hand-built in
Calgary, Alberta throughout 2004 and delivered to my driveway January 2005.
The car is powered with a 302 crate engine from Western Motorsports in
I based the *look* of the Cobra replicar on Allen English's car in
Portland, Oregon. That car was unfortunately wrecked in a crash in the
summer of in 2008. Not too worry, he's okay and now driving a beautiful
blue CAV GT40 (aka Ford GT 40 replica).
This video was captured by my son Justin as we cruised around South Surrey
and White Rock, BC Canada. It was produced for me as a gift by a good
friend Phil Watkins.
If you're a fan of Shelby, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Lotus, or anyone of dozens
of amazing cars, but find them a little out of reach financially, consider
building a replica and joining the fastest growing kit car and replica site

Shelby Cobra Crash

At a local car show, we were thanking everyone for coming. We decided to
film everyone leaving so we could put a quick video together for
memories... Unfortunately, the story ends badly with this Shelby Cobra.
This car is a monster! Although it is a Replica, it was featured with a
Big Block. The outcome is not good, but THANKFULLY no one was hurt.
