MacG Racing, the UK’s only distributor of the current AC brand is poised to launch the first right-hand-drive iteration of the MkVI Cobra at this month’s Performance Car Show on 12-13 January.
“The AC Cobra is an iconic model which has remained extremely popular throughout its different versions,” said Richard MacGregor of MacG Racing. “The MKVI retains all of the beauty and charm of the original AC Cobras, with a modern update.”
The car's similarity to the original Cobra is little more than skin deep. The new car is powered by a 6.2-litre, 434bhp V8 capable of propelling the Cobra to 62mph in just 3.7 seconds, and on to a top speed of 173mph, while a number of modern enhancements have also been added.
“Previously only available in left-hand-drive, we are thrilled that we can now launch a version better suited to British roads and can’t wait to introduce the right-hand-drive version of this incredible machine. Our Racing Team are also excited about our involvement in the development of the GT4 version and being able to race it in due course.”
