The Las Vegas-based American sports car manufacturer is bringing back the car that cemented the Shelby legend for power and performance.  To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Shelby 427 Cobra, arguably the meanest of the original Cobra models, a special run of 50 cars will be issued. The 50 examples of the 50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra 427 will be all bearing gold 50th anniversary badges and logos, plus a range of unique features. All examples will feature either aluminum or fiberglass bodies, offered in either Polished Aluminum or Guardsman Blue/Wimbledon White stripe exteriors (fiberglass carsare offered only in the blue/white combo).

Each of the 50th anniversary 427s also features elements authentic to the original, but reinterpreted to modern standards and materials, including high-end leather, upgraded modern brake components, and stiffer frames. Dual A-arm suspension with coil-over shocks complement the stiffer frame and modern brakes.

If you’re looking to park this collectible , you should know that the 50th anniversary models start at $119,995 for a fiberglass body and $179,995 for aluminum, but that’s without an engine or transmission. For the whole kit and caboodle expect to spend upwards of $250,000.
