Description

Wth the orginal AC Cobra's now hitting in excess of £150,000 in value the replica market has flourished over the past decade or so with some good and not so good reproductions of this legendary Le Mans winning car. Great care was taken to chose our model built by the highly respected AK Sports Cars in Peterborough, England. This stunning example was built to take a whopping Chevrolet 5.7 litre, 350bhp V8 block ! Every bespoke detail on this car was designed to produce an exceptional Replica Cobra and it certainly wasn’t built with a budget in mind. The exterior is in Mauritious Blue with cream interior interior and most of the running gear is Jaguar derived. Doug Nash 5 speed gearbox, Smiths Instruments, side exhausts in heavy grade stainless steel etc, etc, etc. A real head-turner. This car will have people coming up to you wherever you stop - so if you don't like attention this car is not for you! SEPTEMBER 2017 UPDATE: Brand new 5.7 litre V8 Chevy Small Block fitted and run-in. PLEASE NOTE: We are a commercial hire / rental company and provide your insurance.

Hi Would like to say thanks to Daniel for making hire a classic sports car so simple, From booking the order Daniel quickly responded with his required information, stayed in communication via email, on the day of hire Daniel called to make sure i knew where to come to, He met me at Clapham Junction that was an easy journey for me, We spent the time explaining how the vehicle works and operated for best experience most paperwork was done before hand it was a quick exchange, Now the Ac Cobra is an amazing car and a real head turner, it was a show stopper at the wedding with everyone stopping to take pictures for Instagram, the car drove well with no problems, Daniel did inform me of how low car was so took caution on bumps. at all next day I return vehicle at same place with a quick check over and i was on my way. Really cant thank Daniel for the experience, flexibility and ease of hire.

Ultimate Dream Machine! Daniel quickly responded to my request to rent his Shelby Cobra and he was very flexible about pickup/drop-off times. I was able to pre-purchase extra miles so that I could drive it further than the allotted 100miles. It had always been a dream of mine to drive a Shelby Cobra and to be able to do it through the English fields of Kent made it even more magical. Daniel explained everything very thoroughly including how to put up the top which I had to do for about 2 hours because of rain. It has two speakers in the main cabin which work well and you can plug in a usb cable for your own music. In terms of performance, the Chevy V8 engine + exhaust system sounds absolutely breathtaking. I normally drive a Porsche Boxster flat-6 with manual transmission which provided some benefit in driving this car. I'd recommend having a good amount of experience driving manual cars and ideally some experience with a sports car before renting this Cobra. It's rear-wheel drive, very powerful, has hard brakes and clutch, and since it's a classic car, it lacks some of the things we take for granted in modern cars like traction control and abs brakes. It can be difficult to hold conversations when accelerating or when driving at high-speeds so be prepared for that. I'd also recommend a hat or scarf since it gets windy. Beyond that, the car.......was incredible! Even my passenger had an enormous amount of fun! It was one of the most pleasurable driving experiences I've ever had! Thank you Dan!

Dan over delivered! The car was beautiful and the experience was exactly what I was looking for and more! Driving an AC Cobra in London was out of this world. Next time I'm in London I will definitely went this beauty again. DH Cullun were an absolute pleasure to deal with and would highly recommend them to anyone!
