If memory serves that car killed it's last owner. I think I read somewhere that the car was being restored after the accident.
There definitely was the the Cobra that took it's owner (not Webb, I think he lost it to the IRS) off the cliff into the Pacific Ocean. That car was recovered and restored. I think you are right, it is this one.

EDIT; I went back to review what I had read years ago. Webb owned Carroll Shelby's original Supersnake Cobra. Shelby got it back and sold it for $5M at Barrett Jackson a while ago.

Cosby's car (the only other Supersnake Cobra) was totaled in the cliff accident. It has been resurrected but is not considered by most to be a legitimate car any longer as so much was replaced.

Tony Maxey was the owner who died when he went off a cliff with the car. The wrecked car was supposedly purchased by one Brian Angliss and restored for future auction.

Is Brian Angliss the guy who owned Autokraft, the outfit that made continuation AC Cobras? Or is he the guy who owned the rights to the name GT40?
