"We combined two things Carroll Shelby loved: the two-seat Cobra and the 2013 Shelby GT500," said Jim Owens, vice-president of marketing and communications for Shelby Automotive. "What we did to connect this to the Cobra is that it's the real Cobra aluminum hood scoop."
On display at the Monterey Motorsports Reunion this weekend, the car will eventually be auctioned off at Barrett Jackson, according to Edsel Ford II, great grandson of Henry Ford and member of the board of directors at Ford Motor Company.
Ford also announced that it will will rename the street at its Product Development Center in Dearborn, Michigan to Carroll Shelby Way.
