So, does it have heritage, style, performance and total emissions-free capability? Of course, it does – it’s the latest model in the rebirth of AC Cars. The AC Cobra Series 4-electric or: ‘The AC Cobra updated for a new age’.
The Series 4 is based on the AC Cobra Mk IV with the bigger of the two Cobra body styles (shared with the Superblower) and the new emissions-free models will feature one of strongest specification and performance combinations of any model in the marque’s heritage, setting the cars firmly in the highest echelons of sports car greatness.
AC has introduced a power system for a new age thanks to the input of its Derby-based technical partner Falcon Electric, a hard-core technology company with the mission to make electric vehicles exciting.
There are two versions of the AC Cobra Series 4-electric available – the 230kW version delivers 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds, has an estimated range of 305km and weighs just 1 190kg while the 460kW version sprints to 100km/h in 3.8 seconds, has an estimated range of 260km and a weight of 1 240kg.
The light weighting process achieved by AC Cars brings with it positive benefits of reducing energy consumption, allowing the batteries to deliver a longer range and the ability to drive the car to AC’s traditional high standards for speed and acceleration which the marque has achieved over many years.
