Hammond drives the icons: Shelby Cobra
Few people ever see an original Shelby Cobra, fewer still get to drive one... must be Richard’s lucky day

There were only 998 true Cobras ever made, yet you'd struggle to find anyone not familiar with its curves and bulges. You only have to see it once, in a photograph, in a movie or, less likely but memorable if it happens, in the flesh, and it is sealed forever in your memory vault, together with its name.
