Ford Shelby Cobra Concept at the Amelia Island Concours

IMG_0937

I finally got to lay eyes on the Ford Shelby Cobra Concept at Amelia Island this year. It’s a car I’ve seen every day in the form of a 1/18th scale model on my shelf, so seeing it in the metal for real was quite a thrill.

This was a fully functioning car with a real engine. I’m not sure if the original show car was fully functional, but this one had been fitted with everything it needed for enjoyment on the road. I really wish Ford had actually put this car into production back in the day, but at least I know the current owner has made good on their car.

Enjoy this gallery of what could have been a magnificent competitor to the Dodge Viper back in the mid-2000s.
