Bill Cosby had an AC Cobra Super Snake. It wasn’t a Shelby Daytona. It scared him so bad when he drove it, he gave it back to Carroll Shelby.

Corvette Callaway sledgehammer destroyed all in 87 making the F40 redundant. However the F40 destroyed the Corvette CS on the track.

the reason they say the f40 was the first is due to the year, i mean the only way back than to get a real recognised top speed was to have certain officials present. maybe even needed someone from guiness book there also, because i know of many road legal production cars that hit above 200mph wayyyy before the f40. please correct my first 2 points if you know it to be wrong, also if asked i could list maybe 10-15 200mph cars prior to the f40.

This was never a production car; if it was, nobody would be saying the first 200mph production car was the Ferrari F40.

Cobras design is just timeless!

The Cobras, Minis and some more cars I do not remember at the moment, exteriors never should had been changed.

There's two of this snake but only one that survive until now. CSX 3015 and CSX 3303. CSX 3015 had 4 Speed Manual while CSX 3303 rumored had 3 Speed Auto but CSX 3303 is gone to the Pacific ocean cuz... you know... leaving te CSX 3015 to be the only one in the world

I update the old data because the performance is wrong. You see this car has Shelby Daytona Acceleration and very fast top speed. If you wondering how fast this car, try to see Bill Cosby 200 mph album. That's refer to this car top speed. But all of that crazy performance is not balanced by it's handling so this car will make you go to heaven quickly before you know it
