Yep
It was one of the (many) Viper spin offs ( I think after the disagreement between Brightwheel/ DMS etc)

If it's the one with the raised rear deck to prevent the rain running into the cockpit from the rear, then yes, saw one at Stafford 3 years ago and the owner said they were very rare and that he knew of only one other and that was not on the road

Kind regards Lester

PS I think they were made In the Manchester area ( steveart will be along soon to correct me:p:p)

I have to admit to many a wry smile as I have read adverts for Cobras over the years. Hyperbole seems too weak a descriptor. In this case, the car reputedly looks "Stunning". Yeah, right.

Wonder how it is registered?

Mmmm, two radiators and two fan controllers?? Stunning. He's not wrong saying it's not in pilgrims league :-)

Yep' Lester you are correct, made in Manchester, AIR Mark Phillips didn't last long ...? The chassis & body are very heavy duty (really thick lay-up on the fibreglass!)
The Ebay car used to call at our meeting when we were at the Old Corn Mill, it is registered correctly having passed SVA as I remember her turning up at the meet the 1st time having attended several times prior to completing the build.

I am aware of around 6 MP on the road, 2 of them built by a mate of mine!

Thanks guys, I thought it was Viperish to look at but had never heard of the Phillips version.
