Default Carroll Shelby’s Personal Dual Supercharged 800 BHP Cobra

In 1966, Shelby plucked this vehicle from a line of 19 production Competition Cobras and molded it into one of the most impressive automobiles ever built. It has a monstrous 427cid, 800hp twin Paxton supercharged V8 with a super three-speed automatic transmission. “When I built this dual supercharged 427 Cobra in 1966, I wanted it to be the fastest, meanest car on the road,” said Shelby. “Forty years later, it will still kick the tail of just about anything in the world. It’s the fastest street legal Cobra I’ve ever owned.”

I'm not sure what else can be said.

I wonder what that will fetch at auction? Just a regular Cobra goes for serious money. That one will probably go for much more.

That car is going to be auctioned at the 2007 Barret-Jackson auction in AZ. They sent me a catalog and that car is on the cover.

When that car goes up for auction.. just the point that it was hand picked and owned by

Shelby will make its price tag go though the roof.. and yes I would trade my GT for it also..
