Classic Recreations Introduces the Carbon Fiber Shelby Cobra

Classic Recreations revealed an early glimpse at the Diamond Edition, the first of just ten licenced Carbon Fiber Shelby Cobra Race Cars. The car pays homage to Carroll Shelby’s design and engineering. Only ten of these Diamond Edition masterpieces will be produced.

“We created the Diamond Edition Cobra by asking ourselves, ‘What car would Carroll build today with today’s technology?'” “To carry forward the legacy and vision of one of the world’s greatest car builders, our team painstakingly recreated this one-of-a-kind vehicle,” stated Jeff Stone, CEO of Classic Recreations. “We’re going to Monterey Car Week to reveal a supercar that most collectors didn’t know was in the works, a completely re-engineered piece of motorsport history that’s already on the Shelby registry.” We continue to honour Carroll Shelby’s incredible legacy, and we believe he would be proud of the heritage we are building in his home state of Texas.”The Shelby Cobra Race Car was reconstructed to commemorate 60 years of Cobra and Shelby tradition. Only eight are still available to collectors for $1.2 million.

Visitors can see an “exploded” view of the Cobra Race Car’s design and performance engineering, including its CAD-designed, race-inspired chassis, billet CNC-machined aluminium assembly components, cantilever suspension, and other essential components. The Cobra Race Car, capable of 1,000 horsepower, is expected to weigh around 2,300 pounds and be encased in an aerospace-grade, pre-preg carbon fibre body weighing only 88 pounds.
