Technical illustration of the classic 427 Shelby Cobra, commissioned for an architectural firm near coastal Southern California, with new offices opening close by to Carroll Shelby International. This highly detailed rendering is intended as a tribute and environmental graphics for one of their meeting rooms with an automotive theme.
Colors and other design elements are a direct reference to the brand palette and office furnishings. The number 88 is a commemoration of the year the firm was founded.
Visual research of the Shelby Cobra inspired the use of specific details from the original 1960s design of the car and parts, from the original tread of the tires to the shape and design of the headlights. All these graphic elements were used in the illustration of the Cobra and led to opportunities for various decorative applications.
