Ford Mustang Shelby Cobra Spit Nitrous
In 2004, Ford decided to recreate the legendary 1964th Shelby Cobra roadster on a new technical level. The company claims that its concept car Ford Shelby Cobra XXI, presented at the auto show in Detroit, is fully ready for mass production.
Designers created the car in a "minimalist manner." The appearance of the novelty, despite the modern proportions and features, immediately gives out its “family” roots. The original appearance of the 60s Shelby is guessed in the characteristic shape of the grille, in the form of headlights, side air intakes, powerful wheel arches, massive “blown” wings, giving the car a formidable look. And, of course, what Shelby Cobra without a double light strip running through the whole body?
Weight about 1400 kg.
DANDO UMA VOLTA NO SHELBY COBRA
By placing a 6-speed manual gearbox at the rear axle and thus making the weight distribution close to ideal (51/49), the designers managed to achieve good controllability.
Salon Shelby Cobra characterizes the modesty and simplicity of the lines. The laconic front panel is trimmed with aluminum and is made in the style of classic sports cars.
Describing this car, Carol Shelby said: "No glass, roof or stereo: only a lightweight body and the most powerful engine - that's my formula."
However, in the case of the mass production of this roadster, it is likely to acquire simple side windows and an easy removable canvas roof.
