$1 million Shelby GT350 R heading for auction

A genuine 1965 Shelby GT350 R race car will feature at the upcoming RM Sotheby’s 2018 Arizona auction, taking place between the 18th to the 19th January. Estimated at a cool $1.2 million, this classic Shelby produces 350bhp, a 0-60mph time of 5.5 seconds and qualifies for a variety of historic racing events.

This Shelby is arguably one of the most sought after GT350 R’s available today due to its authentic heritage. This GT350 R with chassis number 5R213, featured on the Shelby “Cobra Caravan” promotional tour, which toured 12 US cities. Following this the car then went on to Peru to a new owner and was then re-imported back to the US on a military plane. The car has undergone a full restoration and has won many awards at recent competitions.

This is a fantastic opportunity to own arguably one of the finest GT350 R’s in existence, which also features a rich and well-documented heritage.
