Shelby 427 Cobra
Ford has collaborated with other automotive companies and created magic and the Shelby 427 Cobra is a perfect example of that.
Automotive designer Carroll Shelby was inspired to create a vehicle that could accept a V8 engine.
After a failed proposal to Chevrolet, Ford had offered their classic and powerful V8 engine to Shelby and the result was one of the finest vehicles to have ever hit the streets. Ford wanted to collaborate with Shelby to create a vehicle that could annihilate the Corvette on the streets and that is exactly what they did.
Equipped with a new lightweight, 427-cubic-inch (7.0-liter) V-8. The 427 Cobra killed it on the streets and became one of the finest Anglo-American sports cars to have ever graced the automotive market.
With between 425 and 485 horsepower it has set a high bar for the performance cars that followed it. Making it yet another high performance Ford vehicle that helped changed the automotive world for the better!
