To celebrate his life, Ford have released a one of a kind Cobra based on the current 662hp Shelby GT500. Just like Shelby himself, the new car is bound to be a one of a kind legend.

The body is painted in a similar Guardsman Blue with Wimbledon White stripes that graced so many of the Cobra roadsters built in the 1960s. Its V8 engine now generates more than 850hp with a help of a massive 4.0litre Whipple supercharger.

If Shelby was alive, I am sure he would have loved to see this amazing creation.
