The drivers chosen by Shelby for his first Cobra team were a perfect reflectionof the man who led them : young, courageous and brash. These were thequalities he embodied as a champion.
For the 1963 12 Hours of Sebring, Shelby placed his Cobras in the hands of a now-famous trio: Dan Gurney, Lew Spencer and Dave MacDonald. In 1964, a new generation of drivers took over : Ken Miles and Allen Grant,among others. In total, no fewer than eight American racing legends took the Cobra CSX2128 to new heights, each forging a deep connection to the car in the process. It is about far more than history.
More than any other 289 Cobra, this is the greatest reflection of the unyielding spirit and passion of the young Shelby team. An iconic example of what can happen when dreams are pursued, and teamwork prized above all.The legend of CSX2128 is inseparable from those of its heroic drivers.
Baume & Mercier designed the second edition of the Capeland Shelby® Cobra to honor their endurance and skill in a singular fashion.
