Ford Shelby GT500 Cobra Hd Wallpapers

Besides the beautiful colors and lines it is mainly the story behind this Ford Shelby GT500 Cobra that matters. On the 10th of May this year, Carroll Shelby died, creator of the Shelby Cobra, at the age of 89 in a hospital in Dallas, Texas. His eventful life in Formula 1 and the 24 hours of Le Mans, Ford made him an icon in the automotive world.
Friends at Ford Motor Company, Shelby American and Ford Racing built alongside this unique Shelby GT500 Shelby Cobra with 850 hp. With this number of horses this is by fat the strongest Cobra ever. The car was unveiled at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, where it was the showpiece of 2012. This year is the 50th anniversary for the original Shelby Cobra, so this was an opportunity to make a real Cobra. The unique car that came from this project should be just as Carroll Shelby had in mind.
As a basis a 671 hp 2013 Shelby GT500 was used, but with the help of a Ford Racing 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger the cars spits out 850 hp version. A significant increase. So much force on the ground, the 13-inch rear wheels with high-performance tires for that extra grip.
Shelby American produced a specially designed hood, a new wide body kit for the hips, Shelby Wilwood brakes and new 20 × 13-inch rear wheels and 20 × 10-inch front wheels. The body is finished with the same Guardsman Blue and Wimbledon White stripes that graced many Cobra roadsters in the 1960s.
