One of the rarest Cobras is going to cross the block.
There are few vehicles in the world that has the same iconic look as the original Cobra, which was built by AC Cars in the UK. Since then, the vehicle has become synonymous with Shelby. While companies have gone into the business of producing Cobra replicas, finding an original vehicle isn’t easy or affordable. Incredibly, RM Sotheby’s is planning to auction off a 1965 Shelby 427 Competition Cobra at the Scottsdale auction where it’s expected to fetch between $2.5 million and $3.3 Million.
The specific model is one of just 23 models ever made and is chassis number CSX 3010, which is the only 427 Cobra to win championships in two countries. Unbelievably, the 427 Cobra is powered by an enormous V8 that makes in the neighborhood of 620 hp, which is still impressive today. The vehicle was used to compete in the Canadian Endurance Championship and went on to claim the title in the Eastern Canadian Endurance Championship. The 427 Cobra has been with the current owner since 1978 and underwent a complete restoration in the early 1980s. This incredible classic will surely sell for the expected amount and is worth every cent.
