50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra Street Car
Shelby American has proudly announced that just 48 hours after the official introduction of the 50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra Street Car, all 50 examples of the exclusive ride were purchased by consumers and dealers. The amazing, connoisseur ride made its premiere at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Friday, Jan. 21, 2011.
John Luft, president of Shelby American shared: "The strong demand for these cars proves that the Shelby Cobra is still as desirable and sought after today as it was 50 years ago. People who didn't have the opportunity to buy one in the 1960s jumped at the chance to own one of these very special collector's edition Shelby's. Although the entire factory allocation has been spoken for, a few of these anniversary cars are still available from our Shelby Cobra dealers who seized the opportunity and bought multiple cars".
The 50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra Street Car sports a "Shelby black" finished exterior, a rich wine shaded premium leather upholstery, special 50th Anniversary badging, wire wheels, Wilton Wool carpeting, high-end brake discs and a stronger frame.
The price tags for a 50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra starts at 69,995 USD for a fiberglass or 134,995 USD for an aluminum bodied car, without drive train.
