Shelby King Cobra

British racer John Cooper introduced the race car with the engine of the average volume in 1958, but only in 1963, Carroll Shelby, pursuing the main design of a racing car, chose him and pushed him in the American V-shaped eight-cylinder engine. The chassis was thorough, but very easy, because it was tubular, engine and gearbox formed part of the design for additional rigidity. The double A - shaped frame, stabilizer of transverse stability and disc brakes are located at both ends, the entire building was made of aluminum. The engine was tuned to a large number of revolutions, was done a complete balancing for possible use in the race. Compression ratio raised to 10.5:1 for more power. Four two-chamber carburetor Weber with a descending flight of air gave model enormous traction, even for a small number of revolutions per minute. For a 2-year built only 12 cars and, as far as is known, for there were only 3, which made them incredibly expensive these days.
