The Shelby Cobra started its life as the AC Ace, a small and nimble British roadster. When AC lost their engine supply Carol Shelby realized the potential of combining the light and nimble British car with a powerful American V8.
In 1962 the British American hybrid sports car The Shelby AC Cobra was born and took the sports car world by storm.
Carol Shelby believed the Cobra still had more potential so created the 427 with a bigger engine and improved suspension and chassis.
The Cobra 427 could do 0-100mph in just 10.3 seconds, that is impressive performance for today never mind back in the late 60's.
It is said that Shelby would put $100 on the windscreen and if you could reach it while he accelerated you could keep it. Nobody managed to grab that money.
This is a small 1:24 scale diecast model of this legend of the sports car world.
