Backdraft is known as one of the best Cobra replica builder in the business, one of their defining characteristics is building these cars with bigger dimensions, coming in at 153.5''x 67.5'' they are 5 inches longer than a standard build and that extra space not only makes the look and stance much more aggressive, it, more importantly make the car a lot more comfortable to operate.

The 427 is arguable the most desirable engine you can put in a Cobra for a 2 good reasons, first, it's the period correct powerplant and second it's extremely easy to upgrade reliability, this Cobra's puts out a claimed 580 HP! They also come with independent suspension and brakes taken from a BMW M3.
