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 Calgary, Alberta. 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 on the Internet.

Test Driving 575 HP 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 SC CSX4891
Thought you might like another look at this awesome 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX4891 continuation model, built by Shelby American. I edited the footage again and took out all the jingle jangle country music from the last video. This Cobra is powered by a 575 HP 427 Ford side-oiler V8, backed by a four-speed manual trans. It's even riding on the correct Goodyear bias-ply, big-lettered race tires. This is one awesome beast, with more than enough power. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

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. SUBSCRIBE to Autocar: http://smarturl.it/autocar 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?
