Shelby Cobra 260
An American Vision
To many, the Cobra 260 needs no introduction. If it wasn't for this car, the Shelby American Legend would not have seen the light of day. Yet, surprisingly, it remained unattended in the high detail and big scale modeling worlds. Unattended!? That is, of course, until now.

Exoto presents a stunningly detailed and accurate miniature of the first Cobra. Beneath the hood with its accurate prop is the Ford 260 c.i. engine which generated enough power to beat almost any other car on the road. The interior was designed for road and track; Exoto's team has taken the greatest care to reproduce Shelby's cushioned leather seats and racing harnesses, the wood-rimmed steering wheel, and bright-beveled gauges. Under the car is an accurate suspension with functional steering and realistic leaf-springs. The trunk, held open by an accurate and realistic support, houses a real wire-spoked wheel with precisely formed spare tire like the four on the car.
