If you love the Shelby Cobra and have a ton of money to blow on cars, we have some good news. The most extreme factory-built Shelby Cobra in existence is coming up for auction.
CSX 3015 is the sole surviving Cobra 427 Super Snake assembled by Shelby American, according to Barrett-Jackson. The auction house is planning to sell the car during its Scottsdale, Arizona, event in March 2021. The only other example, CSX 3303, was destroyed when it was driven off a cliff into the Pacific Ocean, killing its owner.
It’s easy to see why people consider the 427 Super Snake the ultimate Cobra. The normal 427-cubic-inch V-8, already a bit too powerful for the chassis, is equipped with not one but two Paxton superchargers in Super Snake spec. Sending power to the rear wheels is a three-speed automatic transmission. We’re certain this thing is a handful behind the wheel. It also looks menacing.
