The Shelby Cobra 427 (also known as the AC Cobra 427) is a two-seater roadster that was built from 1965 to 1967 with only 31 S/C models crafted in 1965.

It was conceived when Carroll Shelby collaborated with AC to create a car powered by a V8 engine.

The Cobra Semi-Competition uses a reworked AC Ace chassis in order to handle the amount of torque produced by the 427cu Ford V8 engine as well as wider fenders and a larger radiator opening by Shelby.

Need for Speed: World

The Shelby Cobra 427 was made available in Need for Speed: World on March 5, 2013 as a B class vehicle.

Its handling performance counts as its strongest trait; the Cobra 427 is capable of turning quickly in corners without losing much grip. Top speed is 196 mph (315 km/h).
