Shelby Cobra CSX7000

Shelby Supercars North America, commonly referred to as SSC, is continuously trying to revolutionize the supercar industry by testing the limits of speed and performance.  It has always been competing with brands like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti or Koenigsegg. And the competition turned out to be advantageous for these top companies which have as a definite goal to be better than the rest. Well, they have just introduced a limited edition of the Shelby Cobra CSX7000.

The Shelby Cobra CSX7000 has been designed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the FIA Cobra. The vehicle will have the official debut at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. The special edition is covered in a Viking Blue exterior with Arctic White stripes and special badging. The car is also equipped with a side exiting exhaust system and rides on 15-inch alloy wheels. On the inside there are black vinyl seats, special floor mats and billet anniversary badges.

The Shelby Cobra CSX7000 is a tribute brought to the racing legends that piloted in the FIA Shelby competition like Ken Miles, Dan Gurney, Phil Hill and Bob Bondurant. The vehicle will come out as a limited edition, with 50 units being manufactured. There are two choices when it comes to the body and the price varies according to these. For a fiberglass body the client has to pay from $94,995 and for an aluminum body, pricing begins at $159,995. The vehicle looks very nice. However, the price might be a bit too high considering the things it has to offer.
