Need for Speed Most Wanted

Shelby Cobra

The original American muscle car

It’s an oldie but a goodie, and the 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 is a Need for Speed favorite. For its time, it was extraordinarily light, fast and powerful. It’ll hit 60 in 4.5 seconds and max out at 165 miles-per-hour. It’s fast, and it feels even faster thanks to the low ride and complete lack of conventional fittings like a roof. Or windows. Unload all 462 horsepower of the 7.0-liter V8 into the rear wheels to light them up with ease. You won’t be fastest off the line, but you won’t care: you’re driving an automotive legend, and its showy, smoke-barrier starts will announce your arrival at any online play session.
