To celebrate the 50th birthday of the iconic 1964 Shelby Cobra 289 FIA, the good folks at Shelby American are releasing a limited anniversary edition of the race car that once dominated the track against the best in the business. The vehicle will carry a price tag north of $100,000.
Based on the same vehicle that dominated the racing world through the 1960s (against cars like the Corvette, Aston Martin and Jaguar) this version of the vehicle is set to hit the scene in limited quantities. There will be 50 total units, all of which will be sporting the classic silhouette in a Viking Blue paint job complete with Arctic White FIA stripes and roundels. The vehicle has been updated with modern day conveniences like disc brakes, stronger frame, premium black interior, and aluminum/fiberglass bodies. The fiberglass model will start at $94,995, while the aluminum body will start at $159,995. [Purchase]
