Life doesn't get much better than from behind the wheel of a 427 Cobra!

Thanks to Ford v Ferrari, Shelby Cobras are seeing an uptick in popularity, and this Backdraft Racing Cobra replica is a high-caliber example of what makes these cars so great. From its timeless styling to its raw power, the Cobra is one of the best American sports cars ever made, and this particular 1965 Shelby Cobra replica – the Backdraft RT4 Roadster – can be yours through GR Auto Gallery.

Replica, authentic or continuation, all Shelby Cobras do an excellent job of attracting attention. The first way these cars do so is with their classic yet simplistic design starting with those massively rounded fenders. This car features an Eminent White paint job with a pair of gorgeous blue racing stripes, and there are add styling touches like the gray ceramic coated headers and the black knockoff-style wheels (wrapped in Nitto tires with painted-on Goodyear Eagle lettering). While many Cobras have stripped-down interiors that pay homage to this car's racing heritage, this Backdraft Cobra gets modern conveniences like push-button start and heated leather seats.

What makes a Shelby Cobra truly unique is a powerful engine that rumbles to life through open headers, and this one definitely fits that bill. Under the hood is an 427 CID V8 rated at 480 horsepower, and power is sent to the rear wheels through a Tremec five-speed manual gearbox. To make sure this Cobra handles on rails, Backdraft equipped it with coilover front suspension and an independent rear suspension setup with adjustable shocks. Best of all, this car is basically brand new with just 172 miles showing on the odometer!
