New 2023 Junior Car 289 Cobra

2023 Junior 289 CobraWhen LeMans winning race driver Carroll Shelby was diagnosed with a heart condition during the 1960 race season, he knew that his days behind the wheel were numbered. But as someone who always loved going fast, he decided to pivot into the manufacturing side, building some of the fastest production cars to ever come out of the United States. Dubbed the Shelby Cobra at its introduction in 1962, the formula was simple: take a lightweight AC Ace roadster from the UK, pull out the underpowered 6-cylinder engine, and put in its place a powerful Ford V8. With just a bit of tweaking in the suspension and some of America's best drivers behind the wheel, the Cobra quickly began making a name for itself on racetracks around the US and Europe. Built for just three years between 1962 and 1965, the Cobra became one of the most sought after vehicles to ever come out of an American manufacturer and with just over 1,000 cars produced across all Cobra variants, they routinely change hands for well over $1,000,000.This Harrintgon Junior Car is a wonderful recreation of a Cobra 289 painted in one of the greatest color combinations- Wimbledon White With Guardsman Blue over the top stripes. When the options were being chosen for this Cobra, a lot of emphasis was placed on making it look as close as possible to an original and that goal was absolutely accomplished. The interior is outfitted with a black full leather interior including a leather wrapped dashboard, which does a remarkable job of keeping the look authentic. An optional set of Polished Turrino wire wheels are a beautiful addition to the car and give it the classic roadster vibe which was so popular in that period. The brightwork and badging has also been upgraded and a set of period correct exhaust tips all work wonders to round out the package and make this Cobra a truly unique build. A custom fit car cover is also included with this Cobra so that you can keep that Wimbledon white paint looking great for years to come.FACTORY OPTIONS * Polished Turrino Wire Wheels * Wimbledon White/Guardsman Blue Stripe * Black Full Leather Interior Upgrade * Carpet & Floor Mat Package * OEM-Style Brightwork and Badging * Rear Nudge Bar + Overriders * Working Smiths Dials and Gauges * Fitted Indoor Car Cover * NOCO Battery MaintainerSTANDARD FEATURESPERFORMANCE & POWERTRAIN * 125cc Single Cylinder 4-Stroke Petrol Engine * Max Power: 8hp @ 8500 rpm * Max Torque: 7.5ftlbs @ 6500 rpm * Top Speed: 40 mph (Variable Speed Restrictor Available) * 3-Speed Semi-Automatic Sequential Gearbox * Front-Mounted Engine, Rear Wheel Drive * Hydraulic Split Braking System with Vented Disks * Brembo® Calipers Front & Rear * Fully Independent Suspension * Double Wishbones in Front * Single Wishbones in Rear * Height Adjustable Gas Shocks at All Four Corners * Rack-and-Pinion SteeringBODY, CHASSIS & INTERIOR * Jig-Built, Fully Welded Box Chassis with Powder Coat Finish * Composite GRP Body & Floor Plan * Steel Suspension Swing Arms * Adjustable Pedals * Suitable for Junior Drivers & Adults Exceeding 6ft * Functional Key Ignition, Lights, Horn, & Indicators * Vinyl Interior, Optional Leather * Period Correct Inspired Steering Wheel * Front Hood & Rear Trunk Access * Premium DuPont Automotive PaintMEASUREMENTS * Length: 98 * Width: 40 * Height: 30 * Weight: 531lbs
