I am thrilled to offer on behalf of the private client owner this fantastic 427 Shelby Cobra replica built by renowned DB427, also known as the legendary Cobra builder David Brookes.
The full Alloy body has been created using traditional craftsmanship with a brushed finish that is quite exceptional and I think far better to see it in the raw than to ever have it painted, but that would be an option for the next owner of course.
The interior has black leather sports seats fitted with classic 4 point harnesses holding the occupants safely, even has a heater system fitted for those brave enough to drive in the colder times of year. The steering wheel is a perfect wood rimmed Cobra style which complements the ever present vintage Smiths gauges and toggle switches.
The 427 cui engine is a rare alloy Shelby block and head unit, built initially by Roush, then upgraded in the US by FE Specialties who are a renowned 427 builder. It is producing approximately 550bhp in its’ current state of tune, but there is an alternative Cam shaft supplied that lifts the output to around 600bhp, plenty for such a light car that has no driver aids at all apart from Hi-Tec disc brakes.
The gearbox is a 5 speed Tremec TKO 600 unit, with heavy duty bell-housing and race clutch, with LSD rear axle and GAZ adjustable dampers. Fitted with a large Touring sized fuel tank and heavy duty Optima battery in the Tardis like boot.
“Epic” – is the only way to describe the side pipes noise and the overall driving experience is simply put (just as the registration number that is included says) – “FUN”.
This particular car was built in LHD to closely emulate the legendary original 427 Shelby’s and with every optional extra included such as the black alloys with brass knock-off spinners, full wet weather gear and billet Aluminium fluid reservoirs, let alone the upgraded drivetrain, this edition is around £15-20,000 more than a standard DB427 and that is before you have to wait for the year or two to have one built by Mr.Brookes.
A fantastic car to look at and drive.
