Default Schumachers birthday gift -1967 Mk II Shelby Cobra 427 roadster.




Scuderia Ferrari's now-retired seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher has gone and bought himself a Shelby Cobra. Initial reports identified the car as one of six super-rare Daytona Coupes, but corrected reports confirm it was actually a 1967 Mk II Shelby Cobra 427 roadster.

Schumi apparently bought himself the Shelby as a 38th birthday present. The exact sum the champ paid wasn't disclosed, but you can bet it was a big figure.Whatever it was, though, he can afford it: even after retirement.

But i guess due to contract regulations he wasnt allowed to buy this car earlier.

If he wants a Cobra, he should be looking at the Weineck Cobra. 12.9ltr engine, 1100bhp, 0-200kmph in under 5 secs, 0-300kmph in 10 ses (claimed).

Shan2nu,
If he wanted to drive something with that kind of INSANE accelleration and stuff.. he would have stayed in F1..
BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
I think he just wanted a pedigreed muscle car which I think he got...
