We spotted this gorgeous 1965 Shelby Cobra replica on the MotorCrush Trending feed and had to share it with you guys. Some may have their complaints that it is not an original, but we are all about retro-styled cars with modern car performance—especially when original examples with less performance will run you upwards of 100K. If you thought this Cobra was cool, you should check out Charles’s 1000+ horsepower Mustang GT. Just click the “View In-App” button above to be re-directed to his MotorCrush profile.
