1983-1989 AC Cobra Mk IV specifications Classic and Performance Car

The arrival of the Cobra MkIV heralded a new era for AC. The Hurlock family passed on the rights of the marque to Brian Angliss, who had been building Autokraft Cobra replicas for years, using much of the original ’60s tooling. When they became ACs, these cars were lauded for their high levels of build quality and retention of the original’s spirit. Most cars have subsequently had their ’80s-era dashboards replaced by ’60s replicas, and are well worth buying at current prices, especially considering the spiralling values of ’60s examples.
