Original Shelby 289 Cobra

Power isn't always the solution when it comes to making a great car. The original Shelby Cobra is a great case in point: I've heard numerous times that the later iterations of the Shelby Cobra with the 427 engines are a bit too much of a handful. That's (partly) why I'd go for an original 289, such as this one, heading to auction at RM in November. Not only is the power more proportional, but these earlier Shelbys had much cleaner lines: it looks more like a sports car should. Estimated value (unsurprisingly for a genuine Cobra) is $900,000-1,100,000.
