To celebrate Ford's return to endurance racing, we drive continuation cars of the Shelby Cobra MKIII, Daytona Coupe, and the GT40 MKII from Superformance.
Shelby American has publicly unveiled the 50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe during Gordon McCall's Motorworks Revival in Monterey. Limited to just 50 examples, the continuation series is available in an aluminum body or less expensive fiberglass version with more amenities.
With the new Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 on the way, Shelby American is saying goodbye to the old GT500 and the company's even more powerful Super Snake version with its new Signature Edition model. Limited to a total of 50 conversions, they package some of buyers' most common choices into a single vehicle with a few extra touches, as well.
Carroll Shelby is undoubtedly the father of the Shelby Cobra, but Lynn Park might be the model's reigning king. He estimates he's owned 50 Cobras in his life and judging by his garage, he doesn't part with them too easily. For its latest video, XCar Films interviews this fascinating enthusiast with the nickname Mr. Cobra.
