This meticulously built one-owner car has just under 5,000 miles on it and it looks brand new. Under the hood, it boasts a 427 Stroker motor and a 5-speed independent suspension front and back. This particular car is a 20th-anniversary edition, and they only made 20 of them, with this beauty being number four. It comes with $155,000 in extras on the 20th-anniversary car.

Exterior Features

The body of this Cobra replica is truly amazing. It is straight and fits beautifully, painted in a fantastic GM color, Magnetic Red Metallic. The pearl white stripes outlined with a black pin stripe are stunning, and the paint is in impeccable condition. Even with a few hairline scratches and nicks here and there, the clear bra helps protect against stone chips, ensuring the color remains beautiful and the bodywork is excellent. The polished chrome roll bar, stainless steel polished pipes, and mirrors on both sides add to the exterior’s appeal, along with the chrome windshield frames and beautiful glass that is crystal clear. The car also features Hal brand wheels, BFG GeForce tires, a popup gas cap, and a convertible top along with a tanu cover.

Interior and Features

The deluxe interior package for the 20th anniversary includes upholstered door panels, upholstered dashboard, GPS speedometer, quartz movement clock, and even heated seats. The leather bucket seats, Simpson seat harness, and e-brake center console with cup holders make for a comfortable and stylish interior. The interior is fully carpeted with lizard skin sound deadener underneath, as well as 20th-anniversary floor mats and a master kill switch, adding to the overall appeal.
