Finished in Wimbledon white over a black leather interior, this mean-looking 2017 Superformance build has just 470 miles since completion. The Cobra is powered by an all-aluminum 427 block that has been stroked to 482 CI. The engine puts out 575 HP on pump gas and pulls like a freight train in all gears.
The final assembly was performed by Olthoff Racing in North Carolina who has assembled over 500 Superformance cars including over 400 Cobras. We have found their cars to be the most dialed-in cars out there, and it’s no accident. Amongst other notable cars, Olthoff raced Cobra’s in the 1960s and was instrumental in the development of the Superformance Cobra in South Africa. His son runs the business now and turns out a high-quality car.
The build features Goodyear tires, a Tremec TKO600 transmission, Wilwood brakes, and knock-off wheels. The interior has Smiths gauges, leather seats, and harnesses. It also has MSD electronic ignition, a Pro-Billet distributor, McLeod clutch, and a Quicktime scatter shield. The car is also equipped with a heater, for those chilly days when you just want to go rip around town.
The engine was Southern Automotive, a renowned Ford engine builder located in Georgia. It uses all high-end components and has been expertly tuned.

This Cobra is properly aligned, corner balanced, and drives like a dream. There are a lot of Cobra’s on the market, but rarely are they done to this stellar specification.
