The Shelby Cobra is a car that just sounds right, feels right, defines an era and the idea that if you wanted to go racing and win, you could do it on your own terms with your own ideas. It is a car that revolves around the legacy of a chicken farmer turned into a racecar driver, and a racecar driver who gave the world a car company. Carroll Shelby’s cars continue to create demand within the collector car market place over 50 years later. Genuine period built examples are on an ever-upward trajectory and remain a blue-chip edition to any collection. It is no surprise that purely on the demand for these cars that a plethora of recreations, kit cars, and the like have been produced over the past 35+ years to offer an alternative price point with similar ownership experience. Naturally no one can build a better car than Shelby American, thus the Continuation series of cars is arguably the best Shelby Cobra built in a contemporary context. Offering genuine well-built cars from original blueprints, enhanced in every way without sacrificing a single original element in its final presentation. The CSX8000 cars are built to order and completed to the highest standards possible to replicate
