Exterior Color Red

Backdraft Racing has gained a reputation for building some of the meanest and sharpest new fiberglass Cobra builds around, and the RT4B GT was the evolution that really made sure they showed the world their added attitude. You can see this keeps all the same classic curves that make the Cobra an icon, but the fenders now have channels that aid in the cooling and add aggression to the style. And speaking of intimidation, the Black Edition certainly lives up to its name with the quick-jack bumpers, side pipes, roll hoop, windshield trim, headlight bezels, and race gas cap all joining the racing stripes by going over to the dark side. We especially like the wheels with the Halibrand-style and genuine knock-off hubs, and they even follow the color theme with a full dark style and a sporty red outline. And when you add in the modern Coyote V8, leather-lined race-ready interior, fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and a five-speed, the result is a true Cobra that truly impresses.


*Only about 6k miles on the build
*Sleek red paint shows off the classic curves
*RT4B GT has a uniquely aggressive style
*Black Edition gives this a full dark side attitude inside and out
*Diamond-stitched leather interior
*Carbon fiber dash
*Roush shifter
*5.0-liter Coyote fuel-injected V8
*Modern motor with cool classic-style velocity stack intake
*Tremec T5 five-speed manual transmission
*Fully independent suspension
*Four-wheel power disc brakes

The modern motor, strong chassis, sharp handling, and all-around assured road feel are what make a Backdraft so much fun. It gives you the confidence to drive it as aggressively as it looks... Although the full package on this one looks like it may have yet to turn its wheels in anger. And that\'s the full beauty of the extra-aggressive Backdraft RT4B GT. It has the hardware to be an awesome track car, but you just have to part it in the sunshine to look like pure intimidation on wheels. So if you love being the bad boy everywhere you arrive, call today!
