The First Shelby Cobra Breaks Auction Record: Most Valuable American Car Ever Sold.
By David Ashton
RM Sotheby, Monterey were the hosts this past weekend to the sale of the very first Shelby Cobra CSX 2000.
The car sold for $13.75 million, which beat the previous record held by a 1968 Ford GT.
The Shelby Cobra CSX 2000 was the brainchild of Carroll Shelby, who took an AC Ace and added a Ford 260CI. V8.
The car has been a centrepiece of the Shelby Heritage museum in Las Vegas for many years and still serves to be one of the most original and best of the shelby line.
