2012 Pebble Beach Concours was a good opportunity for fans to pay homage to a motoring icon who passed away earlier this year. The spirit of Carroll Shelby will of course live on forever in his cars, especially the latest and most powerful Shelby GT500. But Ford also commissioned an 850-hp version of the car in honor of this magnificent man.
They also put together a collection of Shelby cars, including many Cobras. So Jay Leno went to have a look and pay his respects to Mr. Shelby.
Oh yes, and he brought us this video. Ford has done a great job with this collection. It’s not everyday that you see that many Cobras in one place. So hit the play, enjoy the cars, and listen to a nice conversation Jay has with Edsel Ford, son of Henry Ford, about Shelby.
