The Drift Cobra Racing Car is a model plays tribute to Shelby Cobra 427, arguably one of the best cars roaming the roads. Imagine a 7-liter 510 horsepower monster of an engine back in mid-1960s, accelerating to 60 mph in four seconds and boasting the top speed of 185 mph.
This particular model was American Ford’s response to Italian Ferrari’s dominance on the racing car scene. The Shelby Cobra 427, named after an automotive designer and former racing driver Carroll Shelby, lived up to the challenge and secured 4 consecutive wins at the world top 24-hour race event at Le Mans in 1966-1969. They were unbeatable and truly on fire ! 2019 movie ‘Ford vs Ferrari’, starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon, won an Oscar for depicting this epic battle between rival racing teams. American muscle cars featured mighty V8 engines fitted to moderately lightweight chassis.
Mass-produced, reasonably-priced and legal to use in the streets, muscle cars were notoriously famous for illegal street races and crashes. The excitement of gambling, however, was irresistible. Thus, on the days of the races the flat tires of the steel stallions were, again and again, burnt on the unforgiving asphalt. Bowing to the tradition and history, why not organize your own drag race with other model car lovers? This is a chance to shine that your Drift Cobra cannot miss!
