In honor of the 50th anniversary of the FIA, Shelby America is offering 50 limited edition Shelby Cobra 289 FIAs.

A "small block version of the Cobra," the FIA was introduced by Shelby in 1964 and dominated in many races against the Corvette, Jaguar and Aston Martin. The Shelby Cobra 289 FIA is being offered in a viking blue body color with arctic white stripes. The Shelby Cobra 289 FIA adds a new dash and widened front and rear fenders, 15-inch standard alloy wheels and dual piston Shelby calipers.

The Shelby Cobra 289 FIA looks like something from an episode of Speed Racer, and is a beautiful gift that the car manufacturer is making available to us.
