Sound and 7.25 million dollars background: Carroll Shelby Daytona Coupe Shelby roars in Spa (video)

If I had $ 7.25 million available, possibly I melt me ​​in cars. And you, and you know it. It looks like somebody has already done before, buying 1964 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe that belonged to himself Carroll Shelby creator. A Cobra Daytona Coupe was sold at that price at Pebble Beach in 2009, so its price is now possibly two or three times higher. I do not think wrong. But I am comforted to know that he is hot on the circuit where he forged his legend, at the right pace to his legend.

Glad to see that this car is being used for what it was born, and does not stand in a garage.

With chassis CSX 2300 This Cobra is at his best in Spa-Francorchamps, in what appears to be a classic trackday for high value – may be a Ferrari 250 GT at various times. It is impressive to see how this machine carrozada handmade in Italy – home of the best supercars in the world – roaring in the finishing straight and exceeds Eau Rouge at a pace that does not allow mistakes. With a weight of 1,043 kg, the 4.7 V8 Ford Racing source propels it to speeds of heart, as if a fighter is involved.

It might seem underpowered for American V8 at the time, but remember it’s a V8 racing and high-revving: it was able to develop no less than 390 hp and at the time It made the 0-96 km / h in just 4.4 seconds, considering the tires of the time and the fact that it is equipped with a manual gearbox. You have only to give the play to enjoy almost eight minutes of deafening roars, while the American beast runs nearly seven kilometers from the Belgian circuit.
