Wallpaper Description:
Carroll Shelby was a motorsport legend whose legacy helped to shape performance cars as we know them today. There's one particular pet project of Shelby's that stands out more than anything, though—the 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 Super Snake.
Coined the "Cobra to End All Cobras," the Super Snake became one of the most notable cars ever built by Shelby American. In fact, it was one of just two high-performance examples produced and originally belonged to Carroll Shelby himself.
This particular example started life as one of the 23 Shelby Cobra Competition Cars built. After a brief stint in Europe, it was returned to America where it was reclassified as a Semi-Competition in order to make the car street legal. That meant adding a windshield, mufflers, and bumpers to actually make the Shelby comply with regulations.
It's believed that the Super Snake made somewhere in the neighborhood of 800 horsepower when it was produced in the '60s, and it was able to bolt from zero to 60 miles per hour in just three seconds if the tires could hook. And as Barrett-Jackson's CEO, Craig Jackson, recalls—the Cobra "ate that Ferrari alive.

In 1970, Shelby sold the car to celebrity songwriter Jimmy Webb for $10,500. Webb owned it until it was seized by the IRS and sold at auction in 1995 where it was purchased by Ferrari collector Chris Cox for $375,000.
In 1998, billionaire Richard Scaife purchased the Cobra and held onto it for eight more years before selling it back to Cox. The car went up for auction at Barrett-Jackson for the first time in 2007, securing a hammer price of $5.5 million by collector Ron Pratte, and in 2015, the car went up again where it brought in slightly less—$5.1 million.
