The Shelby Cobra is one of the most fascinating automobiles ever created. The track tool, which was created by Carroll Shelby, managed to become a symbol of American V8 power, and today, more than 55 years after production started, it still stands for muscle car power from another planet. There was already replicas the Shelby Cobra from a wide variety of companies, but this copy from the Californian tuning company Superformance even outshines the original from Carroll Shelby in terms of displacement. With his 7,3 liter V8 from the Ford shelf and the right one TKO600 -American powertrain The Californian car adds another 0,3 liters of displacement to the gearbox, and makes the original 7-liter V8 look pretty old. The price for the pleasure, however, is expensive 134.950 US Dollars.
Replica with controversial details
Of course, there are also classic lines modern details on the exterior of the car, which benefit safety, such as the large one Racing braking system from Wilwood, the the Bilstein coilover suspension cleverly concealed. However, they are visible Halibrand style rimsthat come in glossy black and thus join the current trend in terms of rims. In our opinion, however, classic chrome rims would be a much better choice for a timelessly elegant Cobra. Other features of the Cobra are a front spoiler, lateral air intakesthat were placed behind the front axle as well black accentsthat contrasts with the ruby red paint of the car.
We find the gray ones to take getting used to sidepipes, because the classic, laterally aligned exhaust system of a Cobra should normally be made of chrome. Also the Air scoop as well as the border of the classic Round headlights are in black and are certainly not undisputed among Cobra fans. You can tell immediately from the details that an attempt was made to transfer the original Cobra feeling to the present day with fashionable gimmicks. The vehicle is miles away from a handicraft shop, but the traditionalists among classic car fans will probably rub their eyes in amazement at the detail design. At a tuning meeting, however, the vehicle is certainly an eye-catcher.
Modern and at the same time puristic interior.
Such a Cobra doesn't exactly shine with ample space, which is why the comfort in the cockpit is rather modest. In this case, however black leather seats with red stitching built in, which should increase the comfort to a bearable level. Also stopped digital instruments and an start button, which brings the V8 monster to life, finds its way into the interior.
7,3-liter V8 ensures incredible driving performance
Under the hood works one V8 colossus with 7,3 liters displacementwhich is of course gasoline powered. This Crate engine, which was designed for the Ford pickups F-250 and F-350 without charge already from 430 HP and gigantic 647 Newton meter maximum torque. Unfortunately, we don't know whether Superformance plans to use the engine Compressor increase in performance, but doing that shouldn't be a problem. The performance should be out of this world, and on the quarter mile Most vehicles are certainly left behind.
Our conclusion on the Cobra from Superformance:
All car fans for whom performance and performance are the most important things can get it Cobra replica recommend without hesitation. Comfort and suitability for everyday use are in any case in short supply with a Cobra, since it is a pure track tool that can be moved on the race track at the weekend.
