AC Cars is launching a suite of special anniversary models marking its 120 years in business. In the coming months AC Cobras will be going fully green with innovative high-performance electric drivetrains which will achieve outstanding results in terms of on-the-road speed and power yet will be almost silent.
The celebration suite of cars is finished in a striking livery which comes complete with the famous centre of the bonnet and boot stripes which mark the glory years of its racing pedigree. But for AC this 120 heritage Cobra is about much more than a paint job.
The 12 cars celebrate 12 decades of AC Cars being in business, with many important milestones, including the first 2-litre car to do 100 miles in one hour – 100 years ago in 1921 – and the launch of the revolutionary light AC Ace in the 1950s which led to famous AC Cobra in the 1960s.
However, this current decade will probably see the last V8 ICE cars, so there can be no better way to celebrate this than with one of the most famous V8 cars in history, the AC Cobra. These 12 AC Cobra Superblowers are possibly the quickest production AC Cobras ever built and are powered by a 580bhp supercharged V8 engine.
There is a choice of five different striking colours – specially recreated versions of the car finished in AC Red with white stripes, AC Blue with white stripes, AC British Racing Green with white stripes and AC Yellow white stripes and a special version bearing its distinctive blue signature shade with orange stripes. The 12 celebration cars, based on the highly successful Superblower specification which was conceived and sold around the time of the marque’s Centenary Celebration two decades ago, are on sale at a single list price of £129 500 each, ready for the road.
