Polishing Aluminium via Sand Blasting Brings Out Its Full Potential

As more car brands ride the aluminium bandwagon, a trip down memory lane is in order.

Carroll Shelby was an innovator in the racing industry. Any high-performance car that bears his surname surely has an extra kick compared to the rest. The AC Cobra may as well be the epitome of his work. Why settle for a lighter frame or more powerful engine when you can have the best of both worlds?

The AC Cobra enjoyed just that, housing a monster 4.3-litre Ford V8 engine in its aluminium body. By 1965, however, Shelby upped the ante with a 7.0-litre V8 engine. It was the fastest production car in the world at the time.
