A new line of vehicles from Shelby American, Shelby Legendary Cars and Superformance called the “Cinema Series” will celebrate some of the greatest icons of film. The initial group will include Shelby Cobra roadsters, Daytona Coupes and GT40s as seen in the epic movie Ford v. Ferrari.
Shelby CSX8000 SLAB SIDE
1 of 9
Based on vehicles successfully raced by Ken Miles, Chris Amon, Lloyd Ruby, Denny Hulme, Bruce McLaren, Dave MacDonald and driven by Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) only 100 total cars in the series will be offered worldwide. Each vehicle will be based on a car shown in the movie and come with complete documentation. The Shelby roadsters will bear a CSX8100-8199 serial number.
The Shelby Cobra roadsters are:
The blue 1962 “Carroll Shelby” edition based on CSX2000, the first Cobra driven by Matt Damon in the film
The white 1963 “Ken Miles” edition based on the initial street Cobras converted for racing; this model will include a Carroll Shelby Autographed (engraved) wrench and a spare cracked race windshield as seen in the movie
A red 1963 “Dave MacDonald” edition that resembles a Cobra driven by Dave’s son Rich MacDonald in the film while portraying his father
The continued strong demand for the original movie cars led to this new series of cars. The Shelby Cobra roadster in fiberglass will start at US$98,995.00.
