Built as a race car, only 10 limited “Diamond Edition” 1965 Shelby Carbon Fiber bodied race cars will be available for worldwide distribution.
Pushing the limits of carbon fiber, Classic Recreations has engineered and remastered the Shelby Cobra into a one-of-a-kind race car that pushes the limit. The complete carbon fiber body weighs a staggering 88 pounds - truly pushing the limits of anything that's come before it. With only 10 offered in this lifetime, the officially licensed Shelby Cobra, dubbed the “Diamond Edition” in honor of Shelby’s 60th anniversary, will be a force to be reckoned with on the race track. Granted a unique CSX____ series license by Shelby Licensing, each will feature a specially designed custom diamond encrusted badge and feature Carroll Shelby’s signature on the dashboard.
The Cobra body has been completely engineered in autoclave-cured carbon fiber including the floor and doors by Brothers’ Composite, allowing it to achieve a staggering mere 88 pounds of body weight. This innovation meets performance with a custom designed, geometrically correct chassis and suspension designed by Jason Engel, founder and Vice President of Design and Engineering of Classic Recreations. This extremely lightweight Cobra is a force to be reckoned with due to its power-to-weight ratio and improved geometry. The iconic Cobra not only has been infused with modern engineering but was reimagined to include updated technology and more comfort, like an extended cabin for extra legroom to further enhance the driver experience.
The Diamond Edition 1965 Shelby Cobra is for offroad use only and is not street legal.
