Carroll Shelby's 800 horsepower Cobra is up for grabs

This 1966 Cobra 427 Super Snake is here to steal your soul

7w ago

Carroll Shelby not only created cool cars, he also owned some very nice cars. Case in point, this 800 horsepower 1966 Cobra 427 Super Snake. This is one of two Cobra Super Snakes ever built and you could be its next owner.

The whopping 800 horsepower in this comes from a 7.0-litre V8 that has been blessed with twin-superchargers. Originally this Cobra was a Competition race car and later, Shelby made it road legal.

The interior looks pristine and eagle eyed viewers would have spotted Carroll Shelby's signature on the dashboard.

This is not the first time this Cobra is going under the hammer. Back in 2007 Shelby this car went under the hammer Barrett Jackson. Shelby was there at the time to see it fetch $5.5million. In January 2015, this Cobra was once again sold for $5.1million at, you guessed it, Barrett Jackson.

Now the CSX 3015 Cobra will go under the hammer at Barrett Jackson for the third time. Time to break the piggy banks!

  • As it's automatic it will fetch 8 million, if it was manual it would fetch 15 million.

  • If ever there was a car that personifies what a real super car is it must be this one. Nothing else comes close a true bare knuckle sports car with a wonderful heritage . Even Shelby my stepdaughters cat is named after it !
