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

This is a heroic car; it needs a hero to drive it. And to afford it. Rarity and pedigree are everything, so for most, the Cobra 427 will remain a dream, but, for all of us, it's just good to know they're out there, prowling, growling and occasionally bellowing like a horny dinosaur. I'd love to steal this one, but suspect the owner would find me in it, up a tree about a hundred yards away. Still smiling, though.
