I’m the third owner of this glistening Shell Valley Motors Cobra. It was originally assembled in 2002, and is painted Rosso Corsa Red (*Rosso Corsa: Italian for “Racing Red”) with white LeMans stripes and quarterstripes.

It has logged 7,171 loving and adrenaline-filled miles [11,500 km].

A bona fide thumbs up/crowd pleaser, ready for your next club show, cruise, rally or day trip.
