Gumball 3000 2012: Maximillion Cooper's Shelby Cobra Pulls a Bicyle

Remember the guy attending the Gumball on a BMX bicycle we talked about earlier? Not only is he back, but he's managed to get an even more spectaculat tow vehicle. So, he gave up the SLS AMG (maybe the art car-like wrap was making him dizzy) and went straight to the top of the Gumball chain: Maximillion Cooper, the man behind the entire project.
Max is riding in an original Shelby Cobra this year and was more than happy to risk his ride in order to pull the bike along. What risk? It's simple: as you can see in the adjacent clip, which comes from Youtube user DtRockstar1, the bike's peg comes extremely close to the rear fender of the widow maker. As for the rider, the unofficial name of the Cobra, the one we've just used, says everything about the risks he took during the ride.

The 2012 Gumball Rally is taking participants on the following route: New York City (start, May 25th); Toronto, Canada (May 25th); Indianapolis (May 26th-27th); Kansas City (May 28th); Santa Fe (May 29th); Las Vegas (May 30th); Los Angeles (finish, May 31st).
