Although tempted to not write anything at all in order to not spoil the moment, we can’t leave you hanging like that. The Shelby 289 Cobra is and always will be the sportsman’s ultimate performance benchmark. Even after 50 years since its first debut in 1964, the Cobra still puts fear in the hearts of Porsche and Ferrari owners for both its sexy look and insanely powerful build. Now Shelby is marking the automotive legend with a chance for you to own a piece of history with a special run of 289 FIA-spec “continuation” Cobra’s. Coated in a Viking Blue with classic racing stripes, vintage alloy-wheels, and every other retro detail in place, with others upgraded to contemporary standards, like the frame and brakes. Under the hood, you’ll find, well, nothing. That’s because these commemorative Cobras are intended for you to put in your own Ford engine into and strap up to the full exhaust system. Priced at $94,995 for the fiberglass model and $159,995 for the aluminum, order yours directly from Shelby American while there’s still time.
