The Cobra car, a.k.a Shelby Cobra or Shelby Mustang, as most sports cars, allows us to discover that unique feeling of freedom, over and over again. This indescribable feeling of freedom is even intensified when we drive a convertible Cobra car, where there’s nothing but us and the wind. Some sports car fanatics claim that the Cobra car also acts as a body extension, allowing them to express their hidden inner powers. This happens as freedom, speed and power are all combined into one car, and the driver steering it.

Both new and oldie Cobra cars are in high demand, and will probably continue to be. Why? Here are some more reasons as to why people buy a Cobra car:

1.  RESPECT

With a rich history that dates back more than 50 years of racing grace, owning a Cobra Car can change a person’s life upside down. You might hate how our world works and how people behave sometimes, but just parking the shiny Cobra sports car outside your home – will immediately change how your neighbors treat you. Respect.

2.  POWER

Since it’s creation back in the 60’s, Carroll Shelby has always stuffed his sports cars with lots of horsepower. The new Shelby GT500 is equipped with a supercharged V8 engine than delivers an amazing 662 horsepower.

3.  SPEED

With a light body and a powerful engine, the Cobra car is usually among the fastest cars on the road. It doesn’t mean you need to drive fast all the time.

4.  PERFORMANCE

Did you ever drive a Cobra car right after driving a regular sedan? Sports cars, such as Shelby Cobras are created for pure and ultimate performance. Hug turns, faster acceleration and unparalleled driving control will always make a Cobra car more superior, when compared to other “regular” cars.

5.  HARDWARE

Shelby Cobras were always equipped with the very best hardware, making them perfect racing cars. Today, the new GT500 Cobra car is equipped among others with hardcore Brembo front brakes, adjustable shocks and Recaro racing seats, massive performance tires, and much more superior hardware. It also provides the most up-to-date technology, including a high-resolution 4.2-inch driver information screen with all the necessary Apps to track your driving experience, as well as your navigation and sound needs.

6.  BEAUTY

While style and beauty may not be the main reason for buying a Cobra car, it sure is among the top 10. When an old AC Shelby Cobra drives by, with its majestic snake curves, shiny colored lines and Cobra badge on the grille – there will hardly be any eyes not looking. For those who appreciate beauty, Cobra cars are a sure fit.

7.  CONVERTIBLE & COUPE

Compared to many sports cars that offer only fixed-roofs, the new Cobra GT500 comes in either coupe or convertible body style. We get the choice of choosing if to enjoy the wind and sun in a convertible, or rather drive in a classic fastback coupe.

8.  CHARACTER

To many people all over the world, the car they choose will reflect their own character. They choose their vehicle in order to express their hidden or public character. A Cobra car can definitely give its owner an advantage and chance to differentiate him/herself from all the rest. A red Shelby Mustang can definitely make an ordinary guy look exciting and seem adventurous.

9.  FUN

Many people claim that driving is among life’s most enjoyable activities. Very simply put – Cobra cars are fun to drive, and own. They offer an exciting driving experience that includes freedom, power, speed, performance, beauty and also character buildup. This ultimate combination makes even a short drive unforgettable. What else can a driver ask for?

10.  FUTURE VALUE

Unlike any normal car, whose value depreciates the moment it leaves the factory, Cobra cars, like many other sports cars – become more valuable as the time goes by. Almost every Cobra model ever produced has become a classic, with strong demand and a very high value. It’s worth owning one.
