These Stunning Shelby Replicas Are Indistinguishable From The Originals

They’re fully certified and have official Shelby chassis plates.


If you want to buy a Ford classic but don’t want to deal with the hassle of wondering how much it has deteriorated since it left the factory, there’s not much you can do. Sure, there are various Heritage Editions of various cars including the Ford GT, but that’s not really a classic yet, is it? Fortunately, a company in South Africa has the answer. Founded in the mid-’80s, Hi-Tech Automotive “specializes in the construction and customization of Shelby’s most revered and iconic cars with immaculate attention to detail and authenticity.” Because of this obsession with perfection, the company’s name has been spread far and wide, with Ford South Africa reporting that this small workshop has built approximately 6,000 cars since opening its doors.



The company employs almost 300 highly skilled craftsmen who can take up to 2,000 hours to build a single car. Each vehicle is built to each customer’s preferences, yet these replicas are so good that they boast approval from the Shelby mothership. As such, each approved Shelby Cobra or Daytona Coupe that leaves the factory gets official Shelby chassis plates. Buyers can also take pride in the knowledge that their purchases are listed on the Shelby registry, thus giving each owner proof of authentication that can be verified anywhere in the world. That said, most buyers are reportedly from the United Kingdom and here in the US.
