AC Cars was and is a small English manufacturer made famous by Carroll Shelby. He discovered their Cobra was a perfect platform for the Ford V8, and the rest is history. Due to an overwhelming demand for original Cobras, AC Cars has revived it with two engine options. The first is a 50-state legal 430 hp Chevrolet Corvette LS3 and six-speed manual transmission. This all-aluminum drivetrain sends power to a 3.55 differential for incredible acceleration and efficient cruising thanks to the double overdrives. This model is the AC Cobra 378, a reference to the engine size in cubic inches.
The real shocker comes in the form of the AC Cobra Series 1 Electric. Instead of a V8 up front, you will find a 54 kWh mounted in an optimal location to preserve the car’s center of mass. Steering geometry is improved, and Wilwood brakes will keep you safe. The ladder frame is reinforced and triangulated with composites. This light weight allows 60 mph to arrive in 6.5 seconds with a top speed of 120 mph. A city range of 150 miles makes it perfect for carbon-neutral cruising, with a style that will never grow old.
