Shelby American is celebrating the 50th birthday of the iconic car Cobra with a limited-edition model.

This Shelby Cobra 427 50th Anniversary differs from normal production by offering a body either aluminum or carbon fiber. Cobras built out of carbon fiber can only be ordered in Guardsman Blue with Wimbledon white stripes, while cars manufactured out of aluminum are offered in the above-mentioned blue or in polished aluminum.
