These cars are perfect to represent the best innovations of their time.
Shelby American has been known for making incredible American automobiles since at least the 1960s. Making their name with models like the Shelby Cobra, Daytona, and even the Ford GT40, it's hard not to look back on the ears and smile. Recently, bring a trailer has featured two incredible examples that may entice you to purchase a Shelby of your own. One of these bad boys is a classic car that you've probably heard of before while the other is a modern creation unlike anything seen during its time. Which is your favorite?
The first vehicle in question is a Mid-States classic Shelby Cobra Replica, a vehicle that promises the fun and instant eye-catching nature of the original without such a hefty price day. Without a doubt, this would likely be an incredible car to race on a track, especially when you consider the five-speed manual transmission. On top of that, a 351 Windsor V8 engine uses all of its displacement to put out quite a bit of power to the wheels. All of this is well and good, but whether it Beats the next contender is up for debate.
The other vehicle is an actual Shelby; it's a Shelby GT500 Super Snake Edition. You might not have ever actually heard of this particular model; it was pretty obscure for the time and not very well marketed. However, it was more than capable of taking on pretty much anything on the road at that time with its supercharged 5.4 L V8 engine and 6-speed manual transmission. It also has a carbon fiber front splitter and spoiler that sets this car apart from other Mustangs made at that time. Overall, both of these vehicles are a great representation of what you might want as a Shelby American enthusiast. It's up to you to decide whether getting behind the wheel is something you can handle.
