The pros at Livonia, Michigan’s Roush Performance have gained quite a reputation for assembling serious performance machines. In addition to specializing in choice Mustang builds, they’re also well-known for first class powerplants. This roadster, created to exhibit exactly how well Roush can move a Superformance Cobra, spent the first year of its life displayed at venues like Barrett-Jackson auctions and the Charlotte Auto Fair. Now, to put “how well” in to context you have to remember that Superformance roadsters are the only Shelby licensed replica of the original 1965 Cobra. So, imagine taking a built-to-spec fiberglass Shelby and throwing in 50 years of advanced performance hardware to create a legendary classic that features out-of-this-world driving dynamics. In this case, those dynamics are wrapped in glossy Indigo Blue Metallic 2-stage under muted Metallic Charcoal racing stripes. And the result is a timeless combination of killer style and serious performance that manifests as a virtually irresistible curve carver! This roadster’s fenders accurately advertise 427 cubic inches of American muscle. What they fail to convey is: instead of some romantic relic from a bygone era, would-be challengers are facing a fresh Roush Performance 427 IR small block that twists a heady 550 horsepower into 535 lb./ft. of tire-killing torque! Behind that mill, a rugged Tremec 5-speed twists torque to a tough Dana third member, which spins a limited-slip differential around big, 3.46 gears. Turns come courtesy of power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering. Solid stops are provided by four power-assisted discs. And torque meets the tarmac through polished, spindle-mount wheels, which twist 275/40ZR17 Michelin Pilot Sports in front of 335/35ZR17 Michelin Pilot Sports. Professionally assembled, thrilling to drive and ready to deliver the ride of your life, this Cobra is sure to satisfy anyone who has a pulse.
