WoW! - 40 Shelby Cobras Racing (Replicas + 1 Original)

http://www.kitcarconnection.com More than 40 Factory Five Racing "Shelby Cobra" and "Shelby Daytona Coupe" replicas / kit cars invaded the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to tear up the race track in late 2004. The event entitled; Western Cobra Round-up was organized by members of the local club with cars coming from Arizona, Utah, California and from a number of other surrounding states. The Shelby American Factory was literally right down the street and it was no surprise to see an original Shelby Cobra (canary yellow #33) arrive and race in style. The race course was also located very close to the Nevada Airforce base and we were buzzed by a number of F16, F18s and even a couple of A10 Warthogs. Levi and Roush Racing were also both represented as was Dave Smith, President of Factory Five Racing who spoke at the closing banquet later in the evening. Thanks to the organizers.

AC Cobra COB 6008 -- A Racing Cobra.m4v
COB 6008 -- The early years: The history of each of the 453 '289' Shelby-AC Cobras built by AC Cars during 1963 and 1964 has been thoroughly researched by the Shelby American Automobile Club and the results are published in its authoritative World Registry. Few examples have such detailed records as COB 6008, whose first owner can provide information dating back to the day he collected it from the factory. His new sports car proved effective on both road and track, back in the days when it was normal to drive to the race and home afterwards. To underline the performance potential of the AC Cobra, Bruce recalls the time he left London at 3.15 a.m. one summer morning and set his stopwatch as he left Hyde Park Corner, heading to the A1 for the 220 mile drive north. His elapsed time for the journey was 2 hours 18 minutes, in a time when the whole length of the A1 was single carriageway. Reports of some of the Cobras first competitive events can be discovered in the automotive press of the time. On 6th September 1964, Bruce Ropner entered the Capston 4-Hour relay race at Croft and on 29th September it competed in a drag race at RAF Church Fenton where it won its class. Ropner often shared the car with Keith Schellenberg who during 1965, purchased 6008 and continued to compete at Croft during that season with some success. He then shipped the car to Africa to take part in the Angolan Grand Prix in November 1965. https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-289-Register/355209497938700





Superformance Cobra - Shelby Cobra Test Drive with Chris Moran
http://www.SupercarNetwork.com Superformance Shelby 427 Cobra from D&M Motorsports by Chris Moran It's mea culpa time. While it's probably best not to begin a review with an apology, I'd be fairly derelict in my auto bloggin' duty if I didn't admit that not only does this review represent my first time in a Cobra -- ever -- but that I went in wanting to love the car. After all, not only is the Cobra Daytona Coupe the single greatest car I've ever driven, but I'm what you might call a Shelby-head. At least once a week my fiancee is hollering at me to put one of my several Shelby books back in the bookcase. But still, before today, I'd never driven a Cobra. Of course, purists will argue I still haven't. This gun metal gray beauty wasn't built on Princeton Ave. in Venice Beach. Nor was it built at Shelby America's hanger near LAX. In fact, it wasn't even built in America. No, this particular Cobra -- the Superformance MKIII R, a special version of their MKIII -- is built in South Africa. Recently, too. The MKIII R actually has a modern, square-tube spaceframe chassis with different hard points and suspension than you'd find underneath a classic Cobra's skin. Perhaps it's not a "real" Cobra, but here's what Carroll Shelby has to say about Superformance's efforts, "It's not a true Shelby, but I've endorsed and licensed the car for being as close to correct and well-built as possible." Good enough for me. And old Carroll was talking about the regular MKIII, not the one-of-two-ever-built MKIII Rs. And it's only when you start to take in the finer details of the MKIII R that you realize just how special this particular vehicle is. First of all, unlike the bulk of Cobra recreations, the hoses coming out of the lower, jaw-mounted oil cooler aren't anodized red and blue metal -- they're black. In fact all the trim on the MKIII R's exterior is black chrome. Each piece is hand dipped and goes beautifully with the Viper Steel Grey paint and dual red and black pinstripes. The miniature beast sits crouched on 18-inch American Racing 427 Series wheels with custom pin drive centers. In all honesty, the MKIII R's one of the most beautiful vehicles I've ever laid eyes on... and I've looked at plenty. During our photo shoot, Drew Phillips and I just kept shaking our heads in amazement. You just don't see cars this lusty, this sculpted and this desirable. We were just mesmerized by its dark, sinister charms -- hypnotized even. The longer you leer the better looking it gets. From the pontoons supporting the tri-power lights, to the longer than you'd think snout, to the massive rear-haunches, to the aluminium dash and rear-firewall -- every line, every curve, ever angle is placed perfectly and brought to life by a meticulous finish. Drew, for his part, has shot dozens of Cobras and kept repeating, "I think this is my favorite." Mine too. But is there go with all that show? I suppose now's the point where I should explain that the "R" in Superformance MKIII R stands for Roush. And under the aluminum hood sits an absolute brute of a motor. A Roush 427 SR to be specific -- one that generates 520 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque. And all that fury gets ram-rodded through a nine-inch racing clutch to a Dana Hydra-Lok limited-slip differential fitted with 3.46:1 gears. Superformance took great pains to point out that the entire clutch assembly -- the clutch, flywheel and pressure plate -- weighs just twenty-two pounds. The MKIII R rides around on Bilstein coilovers (mounted straight up and down, unlike the original cars slanted inboard shock system) and gets hauled to a stop by Wilwood Big Brakes.

One of two Cobras entered into the 1963 LeMans 24 Hours race with a Hard Top... this is the prequel to the famous Shelby Cobra Daytonas made next year (and that won the FIA World Sports Car Championship in 1965... [would have in 1964 too if Monza wasn't the last race and was cancelled]) Also Note: Unusual wheels for a Cobra, Aluminum wheels like a Ferrari 275 GTB.... most Cobras had Halibrans (like GT40s).





Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe - Lovely Exhaust Sounds!
This video shows an extremely rare and original 1964 Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe, only six Daytona original coupes were ever built between 1964 and 1965. In 2009 a Daytona Coupe (chassisnumber CSX2601) was sold for $7.25million US dollars, with such a ridiculous value it's even more incredible to see one being driven very fast around track!
