This modern Shelby sports car is a wild ride for any enthusiast with a taste for speed.
We all know about the Shelby Cobra, one of Carroll Shelby's greatest achievements in life. Although, you might not have known that Shelby has continued making cars since their beginnings and the fifties. That's right, even in the 90s Shelby was going Full Throttle into the world of racing automobiles. One great example of this is the 1999 Shelby Series 1, this one, in particular, is a convertible. a beautiful car, to say the least, it took the racing-inspired designs for the engine and transmission and put them in a car that much resembled the Shelby Daytona models. So what does this semi-modern Shelby sports car offer?
First of all, this is number 249 of only 249 produced by Shelby American. it even comes with its very own dash plaque, in case you don't believe me. On top of that, Mr. Shelby was so proud of this car that he even signed the carbon fiber engine cover which is a great honor for any car to say the least. Looking at the exterior you'll find a stunning silver color contrasted by the dark black grill and further showcased by the Chrome wheels. You might notice the big breaks behind those shiny rollers, and more importantly the fact that they are both slotted and drilled. that should let you know exactly what this car was made for.
However, in case that wasn't clear enough, there is also the 4-liter DOHC 32-valve V8 engine, a bit of a specialty for Shelby at that time. That Powerhouse is capable of putting out more than enough power for any Enthusiast looking to have some fun on a road, drag strip, or preferably a racing track. On top of that, there's also a ZF 6-speed manual transmission Which gives you plenty of control over the vehicle. The final piece of the puzzle as far as directing your vehicle's path goes is the power steering combined with the dynamic suspension to make an incredibly well-handling car. Overall, it was built to be exactly what Shelby is always been known for, a true race car that can still Handle Road use. now all it needs is an equally skilled driver.
