Vehicle History:
Original Owner Dennis Olthoff, owner of Superformance. This vehicle was his personal car, which he used in the "1 Lap Of America" race in 2001/2002. The car won its class both years. Afterward, the car was disassembled and re-built exactly the same, but brand new, at which point it sat in the Superformance warehouse in Long Island for a year. I bought the car in March of 2007 as a summer fun car, and I have put less than 1500 miles on the car since then. The car is a real head turner and is exceptionally fast, but I'm moving on to Italian sports cars and so it's time to free up some garage space. The car has never been in an accident, nor has it been tracked since the re-build. It is a great car for street, track, or show, and makes a great conversation piece. It's rare to see a replica Cobra with a race pedigree, but this is the one! In a straight line, the car will embarass all manner of modern supercars, and on a windy road will provide hours of gigantic smiles. Any questions, please feel free to ask.
Unfortunately, there are people out there who will use classifieds to get your money. Here are some ways to avoid these scams. Use skepticism and good judgment.
  1. Be wary if the price is notably below market value.
  2. Be prudent with International transactions. A good number of buyer/seller fraud attempts originate from overseas.
  3. Confirm contact information. Legitimate buyers/sellers will provide valid information, including phone.
  4. In almost every case scammers will convey a sense of urgency.
