Electrifying performance: The AC Cobra Series 4–electric
The AC Cobra Series 4–electric ‘The AC Superblower updated for the new world’ is the latest model in the rebirth of AC Cars, appearing to be a very close relation to the AC Cobra 378 Superblower MkIV.
Costing £168,000, plus any on the road charges, the new zero-emissions model will feature one of strongest performance spec. sheets of any AC model: 460kw power, 1,000NM torque, 54kwh battery pack, 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds, 200 mile range and a gross weight of less than 1,190 kg.
AC’s Derby-based technical partner Falcon Electric stated: “We are a hard-core technology company with the mission to make electric vehicles exciting. Passion and emotion drive us, electricity and innovation drive our vehicles”.
“The march of the outstandingly efficient electric AC Cobras is gathering pace now”, said Alan Lubinsky, the man who has kept the marque alive for nearly 25 years.
“Eliminating excess weight brings with it positive benefits for the car’s owner. Lower overall weight reduces energy consumption, allowing the batteries to deliver a longer range and the ability to drive the car to AC’s traditional high standards for speed and acceleration which the marque has achieved over many years”.
Reservations for production cars are now being taken on the AC Cars Website and first customer deliveries of the car are expected in summer of 2021.
