When talking about the best-looking muscle cars ever, 1964 Shelby Cobra definitely ranks near the very top. Although it’s not a massive nor intimidating vehicle by any means, every automotive enthusiast would kill for an opportunity to take this bad boy around the block.
Still, do you know that it has a rich history behind it? This mighty ride started life in the United Kingdom, and it wasn’t so fierce from the start. Manufactured by AC car company, it was only powered by a 6-cylinder engine from the 1950’s, and therefore, the performances weren’t anything spectacular. Ultimately, when it made it’s way into the United States, Ford and Shelby engineers decided to beef it up by adding a couple of powerful V8 engine options, and thus, this little monster was born.
Naturally, the suspension also had to be upgraded in order to deal with that extra power, and due to that reason, Shelby Cobra became known as the ultimate driver’s car and became a very successful racer! Find out some more details on this ride in the video below.
