  13. NEWS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE More Information: Scott Black | TPRM | (214) 520-3430 | sblack@tprm.com SHELBY AMERICAN COMMEMORATES 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF ICONIC BIG BLOCK COBRA WITH SPECIAL EDITION ROADSTER Legendary Shelby 427 Cobra Celebrated with Limited Run of Cars LAS VEGAS – Dec. 30, 2014 – Shelby American, a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc. (CSBI:PK) is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the big block Cobra by offering 50 limited edition versions of the iconic roadster. Each continuation Cobra will be painted Guardsman Blue with Wimbledon White stripes, equipped with a premium black leather interior and other special touches. The 50th Anniversary 427 Shelby Cobra will debut at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., beginning January 12, 2015. “The big block Shelby Cobra changed the way the world viewed American manufacturers when Carroll Shelby introduced it in January 1965,” said Joe Conway, Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American. “While the small block cars were successful, the all new FE-powered Cobra took everything to the extreme. Far more powerful and sophisticated, the big block Cobra represented the bold American spirit. Shelby American’s goal was to create the world’s first hyper car and the Cobra lived up to its potential.” Shelby American built the big block Cobras specifically to conquer all other sports cars, both American-made and European. With an all new coil spring independent suspension, larger passenger compartment, upgraded brakes, wider track, fatter tires and a big block Ford engine, the Cobra rocked the world. In its first year of production, the big block Cobra captured the SCCA’s coveted “A Production” championship. The Cobras also ran rampant in sanctioned drag racing series nationwide. “The 427 Cobra is the purest expression of Carroll Shelby’s vision of a performance car,” said Akos J. Feher, Shelby American Vice President of Operations. “He believed in combining big horsepower with inspired engineering. The big block Cobra featured an all new coil over suspension that would allow the lightweight frame to handle a powerful American big block engine. The car just exudes masculinity. The Cobra’s ‘no holds barred’ attitude is still part of the DNA of every car we build today.” The anniversary Shelby Cobras are component vehicles that can be finished by a customer or an authorized dealer. Each car is built to order and delivered as a rolling chassis, less drive train, with a 1965 MSO. The 427 Shelby Cobras retain everything from the authentic style suspension to the graceful body lines, but are upgraded to contemporary standards. Shelby American uses the same leather that one would find in high end cars, modern brake discs, a stronger frame and the bodies are available in either aluminum or fiberglass. The 50th Anniversary Editions (serial numbers CSX4500 to CSX4599) have some unique differences. Special badges adorn the exterior and interior. Premium materials are used on the seats, carpets and dash. A 23 gallon racing style fuel tank, powder coated frame, racing brakes and custom gauges are standard. The paint/stripe schemes are unique and a special optional engine package is being developed by the Shelby Engine Company. “Genuine Shelby Cobras are very rare and desirable,” said Gary Patterson, Shelby American Vice President of Strategic Sales and Media Relations. “We wanted to honor Cobra’s unique heritage, while incorporating a few upgrades that Carroll personally approved before his death in 2012. These 50 limited edition cars keep the flame sparked by the race-winning Cobras burning bright. There just isn’t anything like a real Shelby Cobra.” The 50th Anniversary 427 Cobra will begin at $119,995 for a fiberglass or $179,995 for an aluminum bodied car, without drive train. Each will be documented in the ‘World Registry’ alongside the original 343 built by Shelby American in the 1960s. Cobras can be purchased through one of Shelby American’s dealers. Information about the cars can be found at http://www.shelbyamerican.com/50th427cobra.asp or by calling (702) 942-7325.

  15. NEWS Release Contact: Scott Black (214) 520-3430 or sblack@tprm.com For Immediate Release SHELBY COBRA DAYTONA COUPE BEATS EUROPE’S BEST TO WIN INTERNATIONAL “CAR OF THE YEAR” AWARD LOS ANGELES – November 25, 2014 – Carroll Shelby International, Inc., (OTC: CSBI.PK) announced that the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe was crowned “Car of the Year” at the International Historic Motoring Awards. Currently owned by the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum, Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe CSX2287 again trounced Europe’s best during a gala at London’s St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel on November 20. A ‘who’s who’ of historic motoring, famous names and familiar faces gathered for the award ceremony emceed by racing driver and television presenter Tiff Needell. Dr. Frederick Simeone, founder of the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum and Neil Cummings, Co-Trustee for the Carroll Hall Shelby Trust and co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International attended the prestigious event. “Carroll Shelby created the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe to do just one thing: win,” said Neil Cummings. “It delivered America’s first class victory at Le Mans 50 years ago. In 1965, the team Coupes won Shelby American and the United States its first FIA World Championship. This Shelby then went on to set numerous land speed records. These achievements captured the hearts of fans worldwide, who voted it ‘Car of the Year’ for 2014.” The IHMA celebrates the achievements of the worldwide historic motoring industry with 14 categories judged by an international panel of experts. However, the general public voted online for the Car of the Year winner. Finalists for the 2014 IHMA Car of the Year were: Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe CSX2287 Ferrari 250 GTO Ferrari 375MM Scaglietti Mercedes 18/100 Jaguar's E- type Lightweight Continuation cars Lotus Type 56 Chassis 3 Rover-BRM Malcolm Campbell's record-breaking 150mph Sunbeam 350HP The Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe built by Shelby American in Los Angeles (CSX2287) carried the day. It was the first of six created for international competition. Shelby’s aerodynamic Coupes dominated and captured the International Manufacturer's GT Championship, the first time an American manufacturer won the series. Fittingly, CSX2287 was the first American car to be nominated for this award and the only unrestored car among this year’s eight nominees. CSX2287 is currently owned by the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum in Philadelphia. Assembled by renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Frederick Simeone, the collection has 65 of the world’s greatest racing sports cars. Using the theme “The Spirit of Competition”, it honors the history and evolution of the magnificent machines. “Ironically, the competition for this prestigious award included both the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe and its chief nemesis, the Ferrari GTO,” said Joe Conway, Co-Trustee for the Carroll Hall Shelby Trust and Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International. “Fine examples of both reside in Simeone Museum Collection. Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe chassis #CSX2287 played a crucial role in securing the 1965 Sportscar World Championship.” Earlier this year, the Shelby became the first car ever to be accepted into The National Historic Registry of the United States thanks to the efforts of the Historic Vehicle Association. Dr. Simeone’s Museum and Carroll Shelby International cooperated with the HVA to chronicle this incredible story. Carroll Shelby Licensing donated images and provided HVA access to materials that will be part of its register archived in the Library of Congress. “Carroll Shelby and his team at Shelby American have an incredible record of achievement and we appreciate the efforts of Dr. Simeone to promote those accomplishments,” said Cummings. “Thanks to his support of the HVA and IHMA, the world is recognizing the important contributions of Carroll Shelby and his companies to the automotive community. Next year, 2015, will be even more important as we celebrate the 50th anniversaries of the FIA World Championship, the birth of the big block 427 Shelby Cobra and the introduction of the first Shelby GT350.” About Shelby American, Inc. and Carroll Shelby Licensing Carroll Shelby International is a publicly traded company based in Gardena, California.
