Superformance MkIII 427SC Cobra, SPO#0970. Finished in Titanium with orange Daytona stripes. Produced in 1999.

The defining characteristic of this serpent is an extraordinarily well-crafted powerplant that is as beautiful as it is brutal, finding the absolute sweet spot between reliable, drivable and breathtakingly powerful.

7,200 Miles (11,600 km) logged, all of which were adult driven. Well cared for and maintained, and always securely stored.
