'427 AC Cobra BW' On Black

The Shelby Cobra was an Anglo-American sports car built in the 1960s. It was not the first car to combine a lightweight European chassis and aluminum body with a big American V8 engine, but it is possibly the most famous. The later, larger-engined cars are still among the highest-performing road vehicles ever sold.

1964 saw an even larger engine fitted; Ford's famed 427 inĀ³ racing engine (7.0 L) developing 485 bhp (362 kW) and attaining a top speed of 163 mph (262 km/h). Even more extensive rework of the AC design was needed to accomplish this; the big-block FE-series engine was much too large to fit in the standard engine bay. The front tires were moved outward, with extended wheel-arches to cover them, and a new coil-spring suspension was designed.
