50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra now held by McQueen

There is not (or at least there better not be) a single Ford Mustang fanatic that doesn’t know who Steve McQueen is, let alone his amazing car chase scene in Bullitt.  This month, there’s another McQueen making a news bit here recently by landing himself an extremely rare 50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra.  Ronald McQueen was chosen as the 2012 Win-A-Shelby raffle winner by the (late) Carroll Shelby Foundation, and is now the lucky owner of one of Shelby American’s greatest tribute achievements.  These modern-day equivalent Cobras are fabricated with the same attention to detail and performance as they were in the 1960s, and Shelby himself was happy knowing this sweeps would result in not just someone driving one of his works of art…but taking it home has his or her own.

Kenny Brown Ford Mustang suspension catalog

OK, everyone.  Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past three decades, you know full-well the Ford Mustang has always been a treat to turn through the corners on the track or spin down the drag strip.  Furthermore, one of the best ways to maximize the experience is via modification to any Mustang suspension setup from stock to “not so”.  Kenny Brown Performance isn’t a stranger to the notion of refining chassis and suspension balance & performance to get the best out of every Ford Mustang from the advent of the Fox in 1979, all the way up to the upcoming 2013 Mustang.  The latest 2012 Mustang catalog from Kenny Brown features a complete lineup of parts which also touch back to any of the SVT Cobra models spread about from 1979 up through 2004.  It doesn’t stop there, however–even Shelby GT500 owners will have something to flip pages over and slap on their snakes with the offerings found within the catalog.

5.0 Coyote plus Cobra equals venomous predator

We were smitten with the Coyote 5.0-liter V8 the second we got behind the wheel of the 2011 Ford Mustang GT. We described the 412 horsepower engine as “a pot of pure honey” as well as “intoxicating,” and said that the “5.0-liter V8 pulls like a jet airliner.” With a curb weight of just over 3,600 pounds, the Mustang GT is not as bloated as the Camaro, but by no means a lightweight. Would we like the 5.0L even more if it had less mass to push around?

These guys have stepped on a limb, and quite honestly, they chose a solid footing while doing so. Being a maker of Shelby-license Cobra replicas already, the Superformance crew knew they had a good opportunity land on their dock when the coyote arrived in crate form, ready to be bled to life inside a Cobra’s engine bay.

Keep reading for a shot of the engine bay courtesy of Drew, and a video of pipe blasting, tire shredding, grins galore, also.

2011_ford_cobra_R_1_a

Wow!  Just when we thought the 2011 Ford Mustang lineup couldn’t get any better, the Cobra R model looks like it is slated for an official return to the SVT stable.  This leaked press kit photo from what appears to be Venice, California shows what looks to be one of the most unique & incredible 2nd-gen S197 Mustangs we’ve seen to date.  From its audacious rear wing to its venomous front fascia, this Ford Mustang has definitely got the makings for a race-ready track terror.  There is little doubt the  1993, 1995, and 2000 Cobra R models will welcome this latest creation with open arms as one of the few & true Spartan race cars ever produced.  Keep reading for more of a break down and a close-up shot.
