This classy roadster is based on the original Shelby Cobra chassis. It was designed to promote the American Copper Development Association, Virgil Exner. Its name is "Mercer Cobra" and it was built in 1963 by Sibona-Basno in Torino, Italy. This very unique showcar also distinguishes its self by the extensive use of decorative copper which includes the dashboard, center console, door panels, rims, side exhausts, seat backs front grille, and its very particular pop-up headlights. This might not suit everyone's taste but this car has a purpose and it features some very modern design elements compared to its time. Besides it is still powered by the original Cobra's V8. That means it's fast and it makes a good noise too.
