THE CAR
This 2008 Superformance Cobra MK III (SPO2814) was purchased from Dynamic Motor Sports of Ross, Ohio in April of 2008 and professionally completed in early 2009. It is what I consider to be the best combination of Indigo Blue with Wimbledon White stripes, Black leather interior, and 3” core ceramic-coated side pipes.
No expensive was spared in building this Cobra. I have over $100,000 in receipts. This Cobra was properly broken in w/proper adjustments made to the motor to include a recent Dyno Tune (see pic). This Cobra has had an oil change every 1000 miles (Joe Gibbs Racing – synthetic). Always securely stored in a climate-controlled garage. ** Registered as a 1965 Ford ** (see pic)
THE MOTOR
Under the hood is a new Shelby Aluminum block FE 427 side oiler motor professionally built by Performance Engineering of Ross, Ohio that cost $30,000 to complete (see pic) which was putting out 460 HP and 494 ft/lb TORQUE to the rear wheels (see Dyno pic). This dyno tune was done in Denver, Colorado (5600’ elevation w/91 Octane pump fuel). I moved to Texas last year (500’ elevation w/93 Octane pump fuel) and this Cobra is well into the mid 500’s in rear wheel HP and high 500’s in TORQUE. That’s a lot of power for a car that only weighs 2300 lbs w/driver.

IN SUMMARY
This is a professionally built an properly maintained 1965 Shelby Cobra – Superformance that has over $100,000 invested and has only 5000 miles of adult/respectful driving (never been on the track – pics from COTA parking lot). It is a show car that can be driven on a daily basis. You won’t have any over heating or fouled plug problems with this Cobra. And it is SCARY fast. I have added a video just cut and paste the address (YouTube). I am happy to answer any questions a SERIOUS potential buyer may have. I’m not interested in trades – just someone that wants to own a Cobra that was built with no expense spared – all you have to do is turn the key.
