The AC Cobra, also known as the Shelby Cobra, is a legendary sports car that has left an unforgettable mark on the world of automotive engineering and racing. From its inception in the 1960s, the AC Cobra has been a trailblazing innovation that has transformed the landscape of sports car design and performance. Reviving its classic styling and modernizing it with upgrades, AC Cars is proud to reveal the all-new Cobra GT Roadster as part of its global premiere in London. At the world-famous Tottenham Hotspur Arena, just 25 miles from the brand's established location, confirmed buyers and customers gathered for an exclusive unveiling of the AC Cobra GT Roadster.
Inside And Out
The AC Cobra GT Roadster is featured as a limited 250-unit release with all first-year production chassis already sold to anticipated buyers. Depending on its delivery destination, the Cobra GT Roadster comes available in left and right-hand drive. The carbon-composite body of the roadster is longer and wider than the past generation Cobra thanks to a lightweight aluminum spaceframe. The newly designed interior is spacious enough to fit drivers well over 6 feet tall, showcasing bespoke details and unique hand-finished elements unseen in the automotive world.
As part of the standard configuration, AC equips the Cobra GT Roadster with a naturally-aspirated 5.0L V8 that produces 454 brake horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. For those looking to add more power, an option for a supercharged version is available to increase its output to 654 brake horsepower and 575 lb-ft of torque. Customers also can choose between a 6-speed manual gearbox and 10-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles. AC Cars' newest release focuses on new technology and performance while remaining faithful to the spirit of the AC Cobra of the 1960s.
