When the original is unaffordable, a replica can hold its value very well.

Cobra/GT40 Replica 1996-2010

Most people who buy a replica Cobra realise that its potential for value growth isn’t a patch on the rampant appreciation that makes genuine Shelby products so desirable.

However, driving something that looks and sounds like something else that’s worth a few million can’t be bad for the ego either.

Replica Cobras with late-series injected engines and modern suspensions are generally easier to drive than older carb-fed ruffians from the 1990s.

Top of the local replica pile is the now-defunct Robnell, with these selling for more than $100,000.

Consider as well a DRB or Roaring 40s GT40 which look spectacular and cost around the same as a 50 year-old Falcon GT.
