Designed to kill and be disarmingly fast, the Sebring Edition Shelby Cobras, from Superformance and Shelby American, are exquisite clones of Carroll Shelby’s classic racers that competed at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1963. This extremely limited collection replicates the original vehicles’ design and engineering. All were initially customized for that specific endurance contest and the famous drivers behind the wheel.
Any wealthy race car aficionado will be thrilled with the replicas. The level of precision and detailing is outstanding with the green-glowing tachometer to the cutback door on the driver’s side to the dashboard switches from a B25 bomber.
The cars will be offered in four distinct liveries, two of which made their debut at the Sebring start. The originals were piloted by the legendary Dan Gurney. At the same time, Ken Miles was making a run for victory lane in chassis No. CSX2002 (badged with No.16). The two other versions available are variations to CSX2128. The car featured a facade of yellow with black stripes and black with yellow stripes again respectively.
Of the 15 cars – two will feature aluminum bodies while the remainder will be fashioned in fiberglass. All will be built above a steel tube frame chassis. Some of the notable Sebring specifics are a third hood latch, an FIA-style fuel filler cap, race-correct badging, a hood scoop with rivets, an aluminum radiator, and an interior roll bar.
The 15 examples will come with starting price that ranges from $160,000 to $195,000. Each car will be commissioned together with a Baume & Mercier Shelby Sebring watch that is numbered to match the corresponding chassis.
