The Shelby Cobra went into production in 1961 and only three years later, Shelby unveiled an FIA version of the car which competed in the 1964 World Manufacturers Championship series. Now, 50 years later, Shelby American is celebrating this great model with the unveiling of a special 50th anniversary model called the CSX7000.
This special Cobra is offered exclusively in Viking Blue with Arctic White FIA stripes and roundels. The interior is trimmed in black combined with special billet anniversary badges and a variety of additional options are offered exclusively at customer’s request.
The new Shelby 289 CSX7000 is limited to only 50 units with prices starting from $94,995 for fiberglass-bodied models and $159,995 for aluminum-bodied models. For both versions prices do not include a drivetrain. Shelby American will show off the CSX7000 this weekend at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.
