AC Cars has welcomed the very first production version of the reborn AC Cobra 378 Superblower.
Powered by a 6.2-litre 432kW supercharged V8 engine and featuring an all-original four-inch round tube ladder frame chassis, the arrival of the reborn Superblower signifies the continued resurgence of the AC brand.
The flowing lines and unmistakable muscular body shape are complemented by an exquisitely handcrafted interior that maintains the true AC Cobra pedigree throughout.
The Superblower complements the recently announced Series 1 all-electric and 140 Charter Edition AC Cobra models that form part of the reborn series of cars to be faithfully recreated exactly like the stunning originals.
Like its brethren, every newly produced AC Cobra 378 Superblower MkIV comes with a full certificate of originality along with a designated ‘COB’ chassis number on the correct ‘AC Cars’ chassis plate, too.
AC Cars chief exec Alan Lubinsky said the company was incredibly proud to see the first production version of 378 Superblower now built.
“It’s a tremendous achievement by the full team of engineers to produce such a high-quality car ahead of schedule and in the midst of a challenging global pandemic,” he said.
The AC Cobra 378 Superblower features an original style 4.0-inch inch round tube ladder frame chassis, 6.2-litre 432kW Supercharged V8 Engine, six-speed gearbox, aluminium radiator and header tank with electric cooling fan.
It’s also equipped with high performance servo-assisted race specification calipers with ventilated disc brakes, 3.45:1 ratio limited slip differential, front and rear multi-link suspension with coil over shock absorbers, front and rear anti-roll bars, pin drive 7.5 x 15 inch front and 9.5 x 15 inch rear wheels.
Inside is a hand crafted interior finished in black leather, glovebox in leather, door map pockets, deep pile carpets and leather covered instrument panel.
