1965 Shelby Cobra RT3B GT by Backdraft Description:

Backdraft Cobra (RT3B GT Edition)

This is a mean, mean Cobra.Backdraft Racing builds an awesome Cobra and the previous owner'sspecifications upped the coolness factor by an order of magnitude. This one-owner Cobra was built in 2013 and,with the metallic Black paint with Prowler Orange and Silver striping, itimmediately grabs your attention! Theside exhausts and 18" knock-off alloys are both finished in acomplimentary flat black. The blackoutpackage gives a flat black treatment to the rest of the car. The interior is immaculate - carbon fiberdash, full instrumentation, Leather seating.And, if you don't completely love the sound of the Roush 427 IR rippingthrough those black side pipes, your car-guy/gal license needs to be revoked!!

The engine was factory tested by Roush and documented at 556HP and 536 lb-ft of torque. Power goesthrough a heavy duty Tremec TKO 600 5-speed tranny and hits the ground through295/40 18 tires.
