AC Cars is launching the special anniversary models to mark 120 years in business. These 12 AC Cobra Superblower’s are possibly the quickest production AC Cobra’s ever built and are powered by a 580 bhp supercharged V8 engine.
This current decade will probably see the last V8 internal combustion engine (ICE) cars, so there is no better time to buy one of the most famous V8 cars in history, the AC Cobra.
There is a choice of five colours: AC Red with white stripes, AC Blue with white stripes, AC British Racing Green with white stripes and AC Yellow white stripes and a special version bearing its distinctive blue signature shade with orange stripes.
The 12 celebration cars, based on the Superblower specification are on sale from £129,500.
You don’t see a new AC very often because not many are built and each car is finished to match the requirements of each customer. An AC Cobra comes with history, heritage, power and performance. A thrilling blend of adrenaline rush, excitement and motoring pleasure at its most unsubtle.
Alan Lubinsky, the man who has kept AC alive over more than two decades despite some of the toughest trading conditions imaginable, has few fears about the end of the ICE age. “We are confident in the future because we have moved quickly and have put in place a new powertrain which can meet the challenges of the impending legislation changes while retaining the true essence of the AC Cobra’s unique appeal – appearance and ultimate performance”.
“We are near the end of an era. In time we’ll be saying a final farewell to the iconic AC Cobra. My question is: Will we ever see (and hear) its like again? My answer is – these celebration cars guarantee that the legend that is the AC Cobra will live on into the future and outlive the ICE Age. We are looking forward to selling a truly hot car in a sunny climate.
In the coming months AC will be going fully green with high performance electric drivetrains which will achieve outstanding results in terms of on the road speed and power yet will be almost silent. So, this change of power unit is momentous in automotive industry history.
