Shelby Cup Cobra Race, Goodwood Revival 2012
To celebrate Carroll Shelby's magnificent Ferrari beating Cobra's fiftieth
anniversary, the 2012 Goodwood Revival played host to an inspiring one-make
race of his fabulous creations. Lasting forty five minutes for two drivers,
crowds were wowed by the sound of the biggest gathering of such machines
ever in the UK. Victory was taken by the Hall brothers ahead of the Dutch
pairing of Tom Colonel and David Hart in second and Ludovic Caron and
Anthony Reid in third.

Video by http://www.ClassicarGarage.nl - Goodwood Revival 2012. For the
first time since the late 1930'ies the famous German 'Silver Arrows'
returned on British soil. The impressive and then super high tech
Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union racers can here be seen in some demonstration
laps with their former competitors like ERA, Bugatti and Maserati. As the
Goodwood speaker says at the beginning of the video: A once in a lifetime
opportunity! The V12 and V16 'Silver Arrows' came from the Audi and
Mercedes Museums, very unique and still giving me goose spots hearing and
seeing those great cars lapping round Goodwood.

I thought you might like a look at this awesome 1966 Shelby AC Cobra
Replica. It's powered by a big 427 Ford V8, backed by a four-speed manual,
and a Jaguar independent rear. This is one wicked beast for sure. It has
the Halibrand knock off style wheels, Shelby bullet mirrors, chrome roll
hoop, coated side pipes, full custom gauges, and a mega watt stereo system.
This car fires right up and is ready to roll. I hope you find it

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to

Goodwood Revival 2012 Fordwater Trophy Race Onboard Turner MKII
Footage shows me (Ben Adams) racing a Turner-Ford MKII at the 2012 Goodwood
Revival in the Fordwater Trophy.
Started 9th, finished 7th.
The footage shows from the green flag lap through to the end of the race.
Unfotunately I spent most the the race alone as I was unable to keep up
with the leading pack but was a good distance ahead of the rest of the
field. However, it was a great effort from a little car and this shows a
good example of what it is like to race at Goodwood.

If you're one of the many enthusiasts who's been longing for the perfect
combination of OEM reliability and classic good looks, it's time to stop
wishing and start dialing!
As the only Shelby licensed replica of the original 1965 Cobra, this
roadster's virtually flawless Superformance MK III body utilizes high
quality, hand laminated fiberglass to create a rock solid drop top that
provides a first-rate driving experience. The car's stiffly reinforced body
panels feature the smooth surfaces and typically tight panel gaps we've
come to expect from top tier Cobra replicas; and its excellent fit and
finish is a testament to Superformance's OEM-quality materials and talented
technicians. Not many customs strike a perfect balance of outrageous looks,
serious performance and excellent attention to detail. But this Cobra's
combination of contemporary build techniques, timeless Indigo Blue paint
and traditional white racing stripes creates an irresistible curve carver
that'll keep onlookers marveling for hours on end!
An eyeball popping presence is only part of this slick MK III Cobra's
excellent appeal; it also does a very good job of going fast and making a
lot of noise! Looking completely natural between the car's body-matched
fenders and fully finished firewall is a state of the art DOHC Ford
Motorsport 5.0 liter 'mod motor' that's rated at pavement scorching 412 horsepower and a
hefty 390 lb./ft. of torque. Officially named the Coyote motor, and
officially found in the engine bay of the 2012 Mustang GT, this aluminum rocket
utilizes redesigned cylinder heads, 32 light weight valves, variable valve
timing, a long runner single scroll intake, a direct mount throttle body, a
forged steel crank, forged steel connecting rods and oil-cooled
hypereutectic pistons to create a stout 11 to 1 compression ratio and a
7,000 RPM redline. At the top of the engine, a Ford throttle body mixes
wind from a polished BBK air induction system with dino juice from a Ford
electronic fuel injection system. At the sides of the engine, breathing is
optimized by ceramic coated Superformance headers. And at the front of the
engine, cooling is supplied by an aluminum single-core high performance
radiator which is equipped with dual electric fans and a stainless steel
One of the best things about buying any high quality replica is the modern
hardware underneath. Fully sorted and completely detailed, this brand new
Cobra's Superformance heavy wall Jig welded frame and fully independent
suspension are ready to take on the toughest track you can find! Behind the
car's slick Ford engine, a Quick Time bellhousing frames a durable Tremec
TKO600 5-speed transmission which utilizes a McLeod clutch and a hydraulic
throw-out bearing to spin a race-quality limited slip differential and
stout 3.45 gears. At the corners of the car, vented Wilwood power
four-wheel disc brakes combine with premium custom crafted coil over shocks
to provide better stopping and increased grip. And power flows to the
ground through 15 inch pin drive Halibrand style wheels which wear reliable
255/60 front and 295/50 rear Goodyear Eagle GTII performance radials.
Cobra interiors have always been simple, and even though this car ratchets
its appeal up with a few custom touches, its purist nature still shines
like a fresh coat of wax on its bright blue fenders. The black German
specification leather seats are firm, look as good as new and feature
original style latch-lock seatbelts for increased safety. In front of those
seats, the blue and white topped dash, which is covered in straight and
tight vinyl trim, holds a full assortment of Smiths and Lucas gauges
between a chrome Superformance rearview mirror, an optional Superformance
locking glove box and switches for a standard issue heater/defroster. At
the bottom of the seats new black carpet, which is protected by color-keyed
Superformance floor mats, frames original-style foot pedals, a polished
emergency brake handle and an original-style T-bar shifter. And in front of
the driver, an optional leather wrapped steering wheel is capped by a
Superformance horn button.

combines classic style with some of the best technology on the planet, this
is your car! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more
