There are some things in life that are beyond the abilities of a single person, such as starting a successful automobile manufacturing company and producing world-championship automobiles. Right. Try telling that to Carroll Shelby. When health issues cut his promising racing career short, he set out to do the impossible—start his own Car company and build a sports car capable of beating the very best the world had to offer, including Ferrari. Especially Ferrari, in fact. Not only did Shelby and his modest Cobra succeed, but he and his supposedly antiquated little roadster absolutely rubbed Enzo Ferrari's face in the asphalt, humiliating the mighty Italian.
Shelby Cobra: Fifty Years celebrates Carroll Shelby's American-British hybrid sports car. In so doing, it chronicles Shelby's amazing accomplishments, as well as the invaluable contributions of Shelby's brilliant team consisting of Phil Remington, Ken Miles, Peter Brock, and many more of the greatest automotive geniuses of all time.
This book is an essential addition to the library of any Cobra fan, Shelby fan, racing fan, or anyone who just enjoys a great American success story.
