Profile

The legendary Cobra was first conceived when ex-racer Carroll Shelby saw the benefits of combining a powerful American V8 with a lightweight European chassis. And so in 1965, with Ford's backing, the company's 7 litre V8 was shoe horned into a British AC sports car to produce the brutal Cobra 427. Performance was simply phenomenal. For a 1960's car to accelerate to 100mph in 10 seconds was unbelievable, and indeed would not be bettered for over 20 years.

The production run of the 356 hand built Cobras came to an end in 1967 when Ford decided to concentrate on their new GT, the Mustang. However, the legend live on through the myriad of kit car replicas available to this day.
