Built by Backdraft Racing in South Africa, this 427SC Roadster (BDR#712) is Sterling Grey with Stuttgart Silver stripes and rich red chasers (quarterstripes).

This head-turning Backdraft Cobra is in search of its new family. It has graced the streets of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County for the past 5 years, but first hit the pavement in California. Therefore this beauty comes bestowed with the coveted “SB-100” (California Senate Bill 100) certificate:
