No need for you to look any further… you’ve found the ULTIMATE COBRA! From the ground up, this is indeed an other-worldly, custom-built Cobra. No expense was spared and no detail was overlooked.
This ‘Custom 557’ Cobra is an E-ticket ride… extraordinaire! It was built for one objective, and one objective only: to provide you with the most breathtaking adventure you’ve ever experienced with any performance car. From behind the wheel of this muscle-bound beauty, any motorway, byway, beltway or boulevard is Thunder Road.
It has been scaled and balanced and boasts serious acceleration for when you want to go fast, and the suspension it must have in order to tame the turns and take the corners hard as possible. This li’l road rocket truly offers the most breathtaking, wind-in-your-face thrills you’ll ever encounter with any other sports car!
Brian Wilson perhaps characterized this li’l rocketship perfectly: “If she had a set of wings, man I know she could fly!”
If you’d like to experience the euphoria of being hurled from a carrier deck with a steam catapult, just punch your foot into the pedal of this 557 drivin’ machine and you’ll find out!
Only 4,250 miles (6,840 km) logged… so it’s barely even saddle broken.
Below are some of the attributes of this Egyptian Orange bad boy:
THE VIEW IN ENZO’S REARVIEW MIRROR
Outfitted with the FAST-revving 557 cid/830 hp BIG-block Ford stroker V8 you see below, this take-no-prisoners Coppertone Cobra ratchets up the original Shelby serpent’s 1960s’ nickname ‘Jet-engine-on-a Rollerskate’:
The underhood foundation is a 460 cid Ford big-block stroked to a 557 cid. The block is crowned with Trick Flow 460A racing heads—polished aluminum. Custom cam designed by a top engineer from Comp Cams [Bill Peck—same fine chap who painted the car]. Every step of this engine build was executed by experienced professional craftsmen; the result is the fastest-accelerating and most menacing sounding V8 powerplant ever.
Radiator is a high-capacity aluminum unit from JEGS; it cools very effectively with a high-output Flex-a-lite puller-mounted electric fan (from JEGS as well), which pulls 3,500 cfm.
Bottom line: this serpent’s engine runs anywhere from 150°–180° in any weather, at any ambient temperature and in any traffic situation.

That spectacular interior features:
—Chassis, Suspension, Brakes—
The certifiably robust Midstates chassis is structurally reinforced in the frame and doors to further reduce flex and maximize rigidity. It’s complemented with:
ALL of the tires are 40% wider than on a typical Cobra. They were selected
(i.e., upgraded) because of the phenomenal HP/torque the motor produces.
There’s abundant structural buttressing to handle that thunder-generator powerplant: the excellent Midstates chassis has been strategically reinforced to provide extra strength and rigidity to virtually eliminate flex during acceleration and cornering.
The Shell Valley body was sculpted into place while investing hundreds of hours making certain the coachwork and paint was absolutely perfect. Everything from the carbon-fiber dash, custom-crafted leather upholstery, powerplant, suspension, & paint was carefully scrutinized to ensure this would be a one-of-a-kind Cobra and a one-of-a-kind driving experience. That is to say, no one will be pulling up alongside you with a cookie-cutter Cobra just like yours…
Over $125,000 was invested as a “labor of love” to build and possess this dream drivin’ machine; it has since been appraised at $80,000.
