Description
Lot #720 - The Cobra Coupe was designed in order to make Shelby's Cobra competitive with Ferrari on higher-speed European and North American circuits. Its debut at Daytona in '64 was cut short when the 1st place #14 Cobra Coupe burst into flames on pit lane. The first win would instead come in March at the 12 Hours of Sebring with Shelby American legends Bob Holbert and Dave McDonald in the #10 car. This win heralded a changing of the guard in international sports car racing as the Cobra Coupe fought Ferrari's 250 GTO for supremacy in GT racing throughout the '64 season. This battle included a Cobra victory at Le Mans, and only a conspicuous cancellation of the final race of the season in Italy would keep Shelby from taking the Manufacture's Championship for '64. Ferrari would famously bow out of GT racing altogether for 1965 leaving Shelby to dominate the championship including a follow-up win at Le Mans. This car is a tribute to the legendary 1964 Sebring winner - the #10 Shelby Cobra Coupe. It is the final car in a limited run of 100 Coupes produced by Superformance. This is the only tribute car built, it has the personal endorsement of Carroll Shelby, and it will be included in the Shelby Registry. It's powered by a Roush 427 with 560hp / 550lb-ft and backed by a blueprinted Tremec 6-speed. 1 of 1 Shelby Cobra Coupe #10 Tribute will be represented by Carroll Shelby himself on stage with the original designer Peter Brock. *TITLED AS 2005 KIVT*
