Shelby Cobra
Autumn 2012 Lavrio Greece by ZetoVince
About this creation
Carroll Shelby's favorite production car

I knew this idea would work since late 2011 when i noticed the new shorter mudguards TLG was about to produce for 2012. I was obviously influenced by _lichtblau_'s Cobra. After that i was working on it a little bit at a time as i usually do when i want to create something as good as it gets for my taste.

Unfortunately on May 11th the automotive legend Carroll Shelby passed away at the age of 89.
The man behind the legendary performance cars Shelby Cobra, Shelby Mustang GT500, Ford GT40, Dodge Viper... was a personal favorite! So i thought it would be nice idea to some kind show my respect with this MOC.

I like to think of this creation as a tribute to the greatest automotive icon Carroll Shelby








At the end a comparison with with the other member of this family Porsche 930

Quoting jorrit harms But its you second best creation !!!!
Hell no! I don't mean popular here on mocpages. I mean popular counting all web sites (favotires, views, been blogged etc.) And no Cobra didn't get too much attention like my Tumbler or Porsche or couple of other creations. You better check my flick photostream to see my work.

Quoting pieter Borst Hey, do you have instuctions(just like Porsche)? or is it a MOD of lichtblau? Realy amazing, nice techniques! Again one of my favorits
Quoting jorrit harms wowowow this is a really good creation i think maybe beeter than your porsche 930!!!! ps, can you also make instructions like you did with the porsche 930?
Thanks guyz! This is an original design (only a bit influenced from lichtblau's Cobra). I didn't make instructions and i will probably not make because it's a painful process! I decided from now on to make instructions only for the very few successful creations i've made.

Quoting Popfudge . Very nice! Do they fit minifigs?
Thanks! No they don't. Keep in mind that a highly detailed exterior in a 6-wide car left no room for minifigs! At least from my point of view...

Wow, this one is awesome, a perfect match to your 911! For me this is by far the best Cobra in this scale. Great job! :-)) P.S. If you like, you can add it to Dan The Man's American car contest. It really looks like a possible winner...

Quoting Mat Zeta I must say I have to agree: for this scale your models looks just AMAZING. You are really great in capturing the most important spots to make the models immediately recognizable. Congratulations! What will you do next? ;-) - MZ
Thanks for your kind words! My next vehicle from this family will probably be a 49 Ford coupe (shoebox)!
