2008 Cheetah Coupe
Remember Cheetah? (No, not Cheeta, Tarzan’s monkey!) The car built in the 60s to compete with the Cobra! Well, if you don’t know nothing about Bill Thomas’ factory you will have plenty of time to find out about it as the car is making a come back!
With only 23 original Cheetahs ever produced, it’s time for some company. Since the introduction of the new Cheetah Continuation Coupe in Arizona in early 2006, vintage racing enthusiasts are rekindling some of their most cherished memories: the thrilling 1964 racing season, when the Cheetah captured 11 wins (and Cheetah believers know it should have been many more).
You’ll want to catch the Cat before it’s gone. Like most truly great things in life, the Cheetah Continuation Collectible is being produced in limited quantities. And that means they’re not going to last long. A chance to own - and truly savor - such a legendary part of auto racing history is an opportunity that doesn’t come around very often.
