Listen to the Beautiful Engine Sound of the Gorgeous Cobra-Inspired Puritalia 427

Shelby

Not a replica, this one is a Cobra tribute.

In the world of unofficial Shelby products, you have some which are copies of the original and some which are simply inspired by the original. This is one of the latter, known as the Puritalia 427. Puritalia is a weird name for an update of an American-made car with a British body (to be fair, they make other stuff), but at least the 427 part makes some sense, even if this one is powered by a 605-hp supercharged 5.0-liter Ford V8.

It certainly sounds excellent, so there's that. The styling is another obvious nod to the Cobra. What do you think of this, did they do the original justice?
