DESCRIPTION

Shelby Cobra: The Snake That Conquered the World In 2011, Shelby enthusiast Colin Comer wrote Shelby Cobra 50 Years; the book met with rave reviews, including Esquire magazine naming it "the greatest car book of all time." Shortly after its publication, Carroll Shelby and Phil Remington--the two most important men behind the Shelby Cobra--passed away. In the wake of this loss comes this special collectors edition ofShelby Cobra 50 Years, Shelby Cobra: The Snake That Conquered the World. The book recalls the early 1960s when Carroll Shelby, a Texas chicken farmer turned champion race driver, had the audacity to think he could start his own car manufacturing company. To further emphasize the gargantuan proportions of his confidence, Shelby decided his company would manufacture nothing but ultra-high-performance sports cars, beginning with the landmark Cobra, introduced in 1962. To the amazement of everyone, except Ol Shel himself, Shelby Automobiles succeeded beyond anyones wildest expectations, building cars that would provide benchmarks for performance that stand to this day and winning world championships in the process. Shelby Cobra: The Snake That Conquered the World is a complete history of Shelbys Cobra sports cars and firsthand accounts from the people who made the car the legend it is today. It begins with the events that led up to Shelbys decision to build a high-performance sports car, continues with the story of the production Cobra street cars and racecars, and wraps up with Shelbys continuation cars and an all new chapter with tributes to Carroll Shelby from Chuck Cantwell, John Morton, Henry Ford III, Kati Remington-Blackledge, and others, as well as new and updated material. This special collectors edition includes stunning poster-sized gatefolds featuring artwork by Hector Cadamartori and is an officially licensed Carroll Shelby product.
