Superformance Factory
Superformance Cobra Octane Reference, October 2008

Superformance Cobra replicas are the only Cobra Replica on the market that are Authorized, Endorsed and Licensed by Shelby Licensing. As Stated by Carrol Shelby himself "Fact is, soon as it's less than a real Cobra, not built by me, it's counterfeit. There’s an exception when it comes to Jimmy Price and Lance Stander. Superformance International makes replica Cobra in South Africa and calls the two-seat roadster they build the MKIII. It's still not a true Shelby, but I've endorsed and licensed the car for being as close to correct and well-built as possible. I can't say the same for others."

Original Shelby Production superformance, reliving history today

When Shelby first commisoned AC Cars of England to build the CSX in 1962 it was the same factory setup and tradition that Superformance continues to uphold in our factory hand built AC employees hand welded each tube into place on the Cobra chassis, Superformance maintains that same attention to detail in every chassis we produce. Chassis were painstakingly hand built, just as they are today in our facilities.

Once the chassis were completed at the AC facility they were brought accross the ocean and the power train was installated at the Shelby American Factory. Superformance maintains the same process in that our chassis are brought accross the ocean and have their engines and transmissions installed in the United States by master mechanics.
