This dazzling Superformance MkIII roadster is now up for sale. It’s in excellent condition, with only 3,700 miles [6,000 km] logged. She has always been exquisitely maintained and pampered. There is very little wear & tear and shows a 9 out of 10.

She has new Avon rubber to grip the road and a splendid Roush 427 Windsor stroker powerplant producing 550 hp for breathtaking acceleration.

Personally autographed by Carroll Shelby on the glovebox door.

This sizzling serpent is ready to be tamed by a new owner and driven into the sunset!
