A superb Cobra 427 Mk III replica cost intensively realized in the USA by the best Cobra specialists.
The bodywork represents an identical replica of the 427 MK III in fibre designed by the famous company Superformance (today one of the rare companies having the official Caroll Shelby licence to build replicas). The paintwork is superb, in deep dark green with the golden racing bands.
The car was built and tuned in 1995 by Boyd Coddington, in the US one of the most respected producers and designers of customised cars and hot rods. But this car has one more advantage, because the passionate who ordered this car, wanted an exclusive Cobra and as close to original characteristics as possible. So he found a real Ford 427 side oiler from 1965, like the ones mounted in the original Cobras and Ford GT40s. This is the famous version of the V8 7 L side oiler with 2 staged dual-barrel carburettors. This engine was completely redone, balanced and optimised and has been dynoed at an impressive 768 HP. The transmission is a reinforced original Cobra one: a 4 speed Top loader. The rear axle with independent wheels was especially produced for this car basically made of Jaguar parts, with original central nut Cobra wheels.
Despite its demoniac power allowing top performance (0 to 100 in 3.3 seconds, close to 300 km/h top-speed) this car is very coherent and even superior to the original Cobras yet less powerful.
The quality of this Cobrasĺ accomplishment is irreproachable due to the experience of the best American specialists. Today the car is in close to new condition. Another important fact is, that the American registration papers indicate the date of the first registration in January 1966; this allows a registration as a collectors vehicle in any country. Finally the price is very interesting for a car with this performance especially taking into consideration that it cost more than 50,000 Euros to realise the engine and the total cost in 1995 were 125,000 Euros.

This car is available in Northern Europe with its US title and EU customs cleared and VAT paid.
