Shelby Cobra
The Cobra’s bite is one of the deadliest in the wild kingdom. That goes for both snake and automobile — the original Shelby Cobra 427 is as scary as its namesake snake. In 1964 racer and raconteur Carroll Shelby fit a monstrous 427-cubic-inch V8 engine into the lightweight AC Cobra chassis, which made for outrageous performance even by today’s standards. Assuming the driver keeps it under control, this Shelby Cobra can rocket to 60 mph in around 4 seconds and attain 100 mph in a hair more than 10 seconds.
