Shelby 427 Competition Cobra, Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, Nick Heidfeld’s Porsche 959: Today’s Car News


A 1965 Shelby 427 Competition Cobra race car is headed for auction, and this one was driven in anger by no less than three Formula 1 drivers. Shelby only built 56 Competition Cobras, and only 23 of these remain as most of the other cars were converted into a road-going model known as the S/C.

Mercedes-Benz’s GLS-Class is about to come in for a mid-cycle update, and we’ve just spotted a prototype. It’s still early days but we expect there to be new styling inside and out, and possibly plug-in hybrid power.

The Porsche 959 is a rare car, and F1 driver Nick Heidfeld owns the rarer Sport example. The car hadn’t been driven much prior to Heidfeld acquiring it, so he had it fully restored by a Porsche—a process that took nearly four years to complete.

You’ll find these stories and more in today’s car news, right here at Motor Authority.
