This Shelby Cobra 289 is completely built by Gelscoe Motorsport. It is fully constructed for historic competition with only the very best parts available. This Cobra is built from scratch following the FIA Targa Florio specification and comes with a brand new FIA HTP Appendix K valid until 2031.

The build process of this Cobra was without any expenses spared, and constructed with only the very best components available. The 289 engine is a latest specification Steve Warrior unit, producing 460 bhp on the dyno. with reports present in the documentation file. The exhaust is a full stainless steel system with 4 mufflers to suit modern noise requirements.

The brand new T10 gearbox is made in accordance with FIA recognition form 1, and paired to a final drive with H/D output shafts.

To get all this power on the road, this beautiful Cobra sits on Crosthwaite & Gardiner magnesium wheels fitted with L-section Dunlop Racing tyres. Everything is very lightweight, including the full aluminium body and Le Mans hardtop (also in aluminium).

The well appointed interior is period correct, with the fully original Cobra 289 dashboard layout and rare Stewart Warner gauges, correct Ford toggle switches and the typical wooden steering wheel. The driver is perfectly installed in a lightweight Tillet racing seat with full FIA approved 6-point harness and FIA specification roll cage – all inspected and approved. The Targa Florio specification body looks just gorgeous in Viking Blue, and the fit-and-finish of this car is way above what you would expect from a racecar.
