AC Cobra Shelby – The Car Whose Value Keeps Growing
AC Cobra Shelby can be easily mentioned among the most expensive cars in the world, especially since some models have sold for millions.
The most expensive one sold for $5.3 million in 2007, yet it was manufactured in 1966 – maybe because it was actually built for Carroll Shelby. Even if you count cars that never belonged to celebrities, an exquisite 1966 Shelby with a powerful V8 engine and a four speed transmission was auctioned for close to a million in 2007. It was mostly used by Ford in England, but only for track events or public exhibitions. Finally, the top 3 is successfully completed by a fancy 1969 AC Cobra Shelby GT 500 Convertible that belonged to the innovative manufacturer. It was sold for $715,000, in 2008.
While there is a brand new generation of Shelby models on the market, they are far from being as innovative and exquisite as their predecessors.
