I guess using an LS engine for a replica makes technical, economical and practical sense, but you're not building a replica of a 50 year old sports car because it makes so much sense, do you.......

  Passion is clearly outweighed by MONEY on the balance scale.

I swear nothing turns me off more than seeing a Cobra replica, or even a 32 Ford build with a Chevy power plant inside.  Sacrilege!  Head knock

So if Shelby did this with CSX4000 and Jaguar is doing it with xkss. Looks like it's the trend. Will this raise, lower or not change the market of the original R cars?

We have had a long history of fabricated classics, especially with Cobra roadsters.  Then came the Dynacorn bodies and reproduction licensed Shelby Mustangs.  Just more of the nostalgic trend cashing in.

Seems to be a trend. Here's an article on an electric E-Type, starting at over $300K british pounds (roughly $400K USD)!

There was an event for the new R Models yesterday at Shelbys in Gardena. SA will have some involvement with the cars and SFMOVC001 was sold.

Gardena is the home of Shelby Licensing as well The CS Foundation.  SA is in LAs Vegas.

 I hope they sell them all. It should help maintain the value of the originals and desire to own one.

As the expression goes, "a rising tide floats all boats". What I get upset about is when the "continuation" cars bring more then the originals do. However, that isn't really caused by the continuation cars themselves, it is caused by the type of person who buys them.

Eleanor is a perfect example. So you think Eleanor is a real '67 Shelby GT500 because Nicholas Cage said so in a movie? Hum. There is definitely a case to be made for cross circuitry of certain individuals brains? Why can't I find wealthy, gullible customers like that?

The new R is a licensed product. It's my understanding it will be built at SA in Vegas. They probably did the event in Gardena to be closer to the press.

Well if they use and destroy real K Code fastbacks for this project it will increase the value of the remaining K Code fastbacks.  Hysterical

Since we are trying to be politically correct ..........K code and R model. Something about "street" vs "Slabside" comes to mind.
