Would you have expected anything less awesome?
It’s been nearly 50 years since Shelby launched the first FIA version of its small block Cobra, and the company started by the late, great Carroll Shelby is marking the occasion in a very special way. Having just had its debut at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, the limited edition CSX7000 Shelby 289 FIA Cobra has the looks of the classic roadster piloted by the likes of Dan Gurney, Ken Miles, Phil Hill, and Bob Bondurant.
The original 289 FIA Cobras were built for racing, and today’s continuation 289 carries on that tradition. Weighing in at only 2,100 lbs. and painted in Viking Blue with FIA stripes and unique badges, the CSX700 Continuation 289 also features modern disc brakes, a stronger frame and bodies are available in either aluminum or fiberglass. It also comes with a complete exhaust for a small block Ford V8. There’s also a fitted car cover and optional detachable steering wheel. Limited to just 59 examples, pricing will start at $94,995 for fiberglass models and $159,995 for aluminum.
