Although the Superformance MKIII R Cobra hasn’t been built by Shelby, it has won the endorsement of Carroll Shelby himself. So how did another manufacturer gain the support of this venerable figure in motorsports? The Superformance MKIII R Cobra puts a new world of muscle under the classic Cobra shell, using a Roush 427 SR engine capable of 520 horses. That engine pushes this two-door speedster to a quarter mile in 11.2 seconds, enough to get that skipped heartbeat back on track in a split second. Johnny Lieberman (a blogger from Autoblog), a long time Cobra lover, took the Superformance MKIII R Cobra for a spin for Autoblog. Now, you can check all the photos from the gallery below.
