Shelby American Inc. and automotive manufacturing and racing legend Carroll Shelby, have launched a second lawsuit in Massachusetts Federal Court against a Cobra replica car manufacturer. This second action is against Superformance Complete Replicars, and follows a similar action brought against Factory Five last year. Both actions have been filed in the same Federal court and assert trademark infringement, dilution and unfair competition claims. The suit charges Superformance with unlawful use of Shelby trademarks and other intellectual property rights. As is the case with Factory Five, the suit alleges that Superformance has manufactured and sold counterfeit copies of the famous Shelby Cobra 427S/C. The suit seeks damages and attorney fees, and an order to seize and destroy Superformance’s fiberglass molds.
