New AC Cobra range

Post by BrianC » Thu Aug 06, 2020 4:48 pm

Can't believe no one else has done a post on this yet!

Looks nice, but with a 4 cylinder engine (even if it does produce 350bhp) just doesn't feel right and an electric version!!!!!!!!!!!!! And still only has a 0-60 time of 6.0 secs.
Also noticed it is running on Firestone Tyres!

Cheers, Clive.

Great engineering, but as stated above, seems the wrong direction for AC pedigree.

...btw, Pilgrim haven't used 4 pots for many years now ;)

Brian must have missed my July post in General Cobra( as there is nothing 289 about these), so look there for later posts!
