Here is a very Special Edition 2011 Shelby GT500 Cobra. Attended and autographed by motoring legend Carroll Shelby, and auctioned on-line by Collector Car Productions at the Canadian International AutoShow event in Toronto, Ontario, on February 10th, 2010. Accompanied by Mr. David E. Davis and Mr. Bob Bondurant, Carroll Shelby was inducted into the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame that night as the first international inductee. The Carroll Shelby Tribute Event was in support of the Canadian Shelby Foundation and the Canadian Motorsport Heritage Foundation.
This Shelby Cobra is 1 of 2 cars in existence! Purchased from Ford Motor Company of Canada by the Toronto Dealers Association (TADA) for the purpose of promoting the Shelby Tribute Charity Event where 30 historically significant Shelby cars were placed on display from collections across North America, both Special Edition cars showcase a factory prototype suspension not available with any other Shelby GT500!Click on Read more!
Both cars were purchased “stripe delete” so that special “Tribute” stripes and decals could be applied. This car has a sun visor with an authentic Carroll Shelby autograph, and bears a bonded under hood classic reproduction Shelby American name plate with the Tribute date and sequence number inscribed as “CSX021010CIAS2″ This gem comes with a Collector Car Trophy Case which includes: The Gala Evening Program, an Admittance ticket, a Signed Certificate of Authenticity dated January 12th, 2010, an autographed photo, a duplicate Shelby American name plate which matches the one under the hood, and the winning bidder registration card showcasing the on-line winning name.
This modern muscle car is powered by a Supercharged 5.4L hand-built Aluminum V8, generating 550 hp & 510 lbs torque, with a 6-speed manual transmission. Fully equipped with Navigation, Glass Roof, Shaker 500 juke box, Microsoft’s NSYNC, and SVT Track Pack representing “all available options” included (for a very rare & expensive combination). Since Carroll Shelby’s death May 2012, this highly sought after Collector Car has jumped in value and will likely continue appreciating substantially for any proud owner for years to come!
