![CDATA[
The hugely charismatic AC Cobra has remained the undisputed market leader for more than 25 years within the field of replica cars, with many steadily establishing themselves as much sought after classic sports cars in their own right. It is no exaggeration to say that these cars tend to amaze all who go out in them; harnessing the power with consummate ease and providing levels of grip, composure and ride comfort that simply have to be experienced to be believed.
This example of the Roadcraft SRV 8 AC Cobra replica was built and is still owned by our vendor, a Chartered Mechanical Engineer. The build took 906 hours to complete between 1995 and 1997 with the brief being to make a road legal sports car that could be used as a daily driver and get as close as possible to the original 1965 AC Cobra 427. We are assured great care was taken to improve the quality, functionality, appearance, and longevity of the car as shown on the build sheet document included in the impressive history file. Presented in the iconic colours of the 1965 AC Cobra 427, it boasts the Ford 351 c.i. small block Windsor V8 coupled to a five speed Borg Warner gearbox with Daimler XJ6 differential and running gear. The donor car is a 1981 Daimler Sovereign Series II registered on 7th August 1981, therefore it is anticipated that road tax exemption will apply from this summer. Offered with an MoT until October 2021, the full wet weather gear, comprehensive history file which also contains an assembly manual, UK V5C logbook, weight certificate, service log and check list, parts list, wiring diagrams and wheel alignment certificate, everything a new owner would need to know about the car. A great sounding car with looks to match, with a very sensible estimate.
