Vehicle Description

Superformance MK III Cobra

So you don’t feel like spending five million dollars of your retirement funds for a REAL AC Cobra . . . . Well, that’s understandable. So have you done your homework yet ? Here it is in a nutshell . . . . there are umpteen manufacturers making Cobra kit cars around the world, but they don’t sell cars . . . . . they sell kits ! Kits are like buying a bunch of groceries and taking them home . . . . It’s not a meal and you can’t enjoy those groceries until someone that knows what they are doing puts it all together and makes it a MEAL ! If you want to purchase a MANUFACTURED Cobra Replica that is a complete car, already designed and proven, that is ready to drive, then your options are very limited. There are two manufacturers in South Africa who seem to have gotten it right as their names are well known in the industry for building the very best Cobras in the entire world. One of these two companies got it SO right that Carroll Shelby and the Shelby Foundation accepted their Cobras into the Shelby Owner’s Registry. This is the ONLY Cobra manufacturer in the world that is recognized by Shelby. The company is Superformance, and Superformance is the top name in Cobras, bar none. The one I have for sale is a completely original Guardsman Blue 1965 Cobra that was built and titled in 2000 and has been driven a total of 4,400 miles. This absolutely flawless Cobra is powered by Ford’s 351 SVO engine which puts out 385 ground pounding horses that are coupled with a smooth shifting Tremec five speed transmission. That’s three hundred eighty-five horsepower in a car that weighs in at 2,485 pounds ! So whether or not you excel in math, you already know this car will absolutely make your adrenaline glands SCREAM ! The car has the correct Smith’s gauges, Lucas switches, Halibrand knock-off wheels, etc., etc. So, if you are in the market for a Cobra and don’t want to spend the five million for a real one, then you have an opportunity here to own the second-best one at a very affordable price. The car comes with full bonnet, side curtains, and car cover.
