We are delighted to offer this outstanding motor car onto the market. This AC Cobra has incredible looks and as it drives by it can be mistaken for a genuine 1960's period car with its stunning, popular genuine AC Cobra non metallic Black paint finish, expensive registration mark and period style headlamps and rear lights. Whilst the Cobra was originally built in 1994, in 2015/2016 a staggering £19,500 spent taking the car to a truly superb standard. This example is a Dax with Jaguar running gear, Dax Cars were founded in 1968 and started out as a fibreglass moulding company before coming the first British company to make a kit based replica of the AC 427 Cobra. Dax have now been producing these stunning cars for over 30 years and have sold over 4000 kits. Over the years we have had several Dax Cobra's and they have all proven to be outstanding cars of very high quality but this has to be the finest we have owned.

The AC Cobra is without any doubt the most sought after classic super Sportscar. The combination of a beautifully designed tubular chassis by Tojeiro, an ultra-light aluminium Italian Barchetta style body and Carroll Shelby’s genius idea to shoe-horn into the chassis the very strong and reliable Ford V8 small block engine was the initial recipe. From the original versions (MKI MKII and MKIII), built between 1962 and 1967, only approximately 1,000 were produced, but fetch today on the collectors car market astronomical prices !Petrol crises and world events sadly led to the bankruptcy of AC in the late seventies. The company’s tooling and eventually the right to use the name, were acquired by Autokraft, a Cobra specialist and car manufacturer owned by Brian A. Angliss. In agreement with Carroll Shelby and the Ford Motor Company, the last version MKIII car, of which only 327 were produced in the sixties, would appear again in 1982 with some modifications as the Autokraft MKIV, in essence an AC MKIII car with a 5.0L V8 and a Borg Warner T5 Transmission.These MKIV AC Cobra's must not be confused with any of the replica Cobra's out there. They are built to the very highest standards and are totally authentic, hand made, aluminium bodied cars built on the original bucks etc from AC Cars in the seventies. The engines were sourced from Ford USA and indeed the Ford Motor Company went into business with Brian Anglis, Autokraft, to collaborate in the production. This stunning example is finished in Raven Black with Black alloy wheels, chrome bumpers and a Tobacco leather interior. Purists will be quick to note that the interior is noticeably more luxurious than that of an early Shelby Cobra, benefitting from a stereo system with a CD player, leather trim, and seats with headrests. The car is fitted with Ford’s tried-and-true 225-brake horsepower, 5.0-litre engine with EFI, which is mated to a five-speed manual transmission.As the Mk IV offers a handful of welcome updates over the original Shelby Cobras, it makes for a wonderful driver’s car, providing ample amounts of both power and additional comfort. These cars are seldom seen in Europe, and this example would be the perfect stablemate to an original 289 or 427, or it can also be driven and enjoyed with ease and reliability. As it bears the AC name and was produced using many of the same tools and techniques as the originals, the Mk IV represents an interesting period in Shelby and AC history, and this extremely fine example would make for an excellent wind in the hair, long distance sports tourer.Available for viewing in our Kew showrooms.
