Description

Shelby Cobra Replica. There are many cars out there that people love, but it is objectively true that the late 60's Shelby Cobra Roadster is the most awesome of them all. This replica, painstakingly assembled over a 4 year period perfectly captures the beauty and power of the legend. Caution: driving this car makes it almost impossible to stop grinning like a fool. Park it anywhere and you will see people walk past Ferraris and Lamborghinis to take selfies in front of this beautiful beast. It was built with a focus on luxury from an ergonomic leather wrapped steering wheel to carpeted and insulated interior panels. Most Cobras do not have self canceling turn signals or even a horn button in the steering wheel. Few Cobras have enough trunk space to fit a carry-on bag, but this has one actually has space for two suitcases, or even a golf bag. Anyone familiar with the genre will immediately recognize the great pains that went into making this car civilized without compromising on its racing heritage or classic beauty. It is built with many OEM period components so there are a few idiosyncrasies associated with cars of the era (such as bouncing fuel gauge and speedometer, unburned hydrocarbons in the exhaust, and 3-5 second cranking time for ignition). None of these detract from the incredible experience of driving the Cobra and are just a part of the experience of such classic cars. UPDATE: TURO has changed their policies to make the minimum included mileage for all vehicles 200 miles per day, this is not appropriate for classic vehicles, but TURO is not really designed for classic vehicles. Rather than raise our prices in response, we are asking all renters to keep daily driving below 100 miles, or to pay a gratuity of $3 per mile over the included 100 miles per day.

This car is amazing!! My husband loved the surprise and it was such a fun time. Layne was so sweet and made it a great experience.

This was an absolute dream come true. I rented Layne’s Cobra as a gift for my husband. We had a wonderful weekend and hope to do it again. Layne is very kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. I think it’s amazing that he’s willing to share this precious car with others. If you’re a Cobra fan, this is your chance to get behind the wheel of one and experience it for yourself. One of the best travel experiences we’ve had to date and I simply cannot thank him enough.
