![CDATA[
The Contemporary Classic Motor Company was set up in 1978 by Peter Bayer in Mamaroneck, New York State, USA and his reproduction of the legendary Shelby Cobra 427 was regarded by many as the finest replica of the marque because of the accuracy of the bodywork, its round-tube chassis and the overall quality of the engineering and general construction.
This 1996 427 S/C (Semi-Competition), Contemporary recreation was built to order for Liam Howlett of The Prodigy off the back of the bands biggest hit ‘Firestarter’. Powered by a genuine Shelby licensed 427c.i, V8 and running four twin-choke downdraft Weber carburettors in the GT40 configuration, this car conservatively puts out over 400hp with the potential to tune higher. Power is driven to the rear wheels through a four-speed ‘Toploader’ gearbox with correct Halibrand wheels and Goodridge Cobra tyres.
Beautifully presented, this rare righthand drive car boasts all the original details such as correct anti-clockwise speedometer, windscreen, radiator fans and other trim fittings. Howlett reportedly wanted the ultimate Contemporary Cobra and the cost was a secondary consideration. The car as a result has fully adjustable suspension, stainless steel manifolds with S/C style side exit exhaust and rack and pinion steering, making this the definitive recreation S/C Cobra.
The car comes supplied with a V5C registration document and MoT test certificate valid until September 2020. Its history file includes an extensive compilation of invoices from works done over the years as well as a full build sheet. It was also featured on the front cover of the UK Cobra Club’s Snake Torque magazine in February 1997. For the ultimate Cobra experience without the million pound price tag, look no further.]]
