Please have a look at my cobra on ebay if your on the look out.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AC-Cobra-Replica-Chevy-6-3Ltr-V8-Stroker-450BHP-/331710803168?

Im in the process of having some better pictures taken, the number plate shown is no longer on the car. Ive since purchased ACC983A on classic black plates, at shows you can space this so it looks like AC COBRA, registration IS included in the sale. AC Cobra replica engineer built in 2007 to 2009 This is an animal of a car and sound like nothing else on the road.
This engine note puts a Ferrari to shame. Its a very very fast and capable race car that's had so much cash thrown at it, I have a comprehensive history file with receipts well in excess of 25k (parts alone!)
Its not your average Cobra replica, it have done everything possible to remove the usual 'kitcar' look and instead worked hard for the classic and authentic AC look.
Ive had this car for 8 years now and its time to let someone else enjoy it, it will tear my heart open to see it drive away with the new owner. Its a very reliable car, I have worked hard over the years improving and upgrading. It goes and sounds like a true supercar should, 6.3 litres of american grunt that you can hear from a mile away. Ive had many nice cars over the years but nothing that gets more attention and admiration than this.
I have taken this car to Le Mans twice and both times was utterly faultless and a pleasure to drive. New project means it has to go as I need the room. No silly offers please, this is a serious car that makes waves when I take it to the shows and makes everyone smile,
Huge history file with loads of photos of the build and virtually every receipt for every part, Fully and correctly registered in 2009 with V5 present.
Car has never been in an accident or bump of any kind.
Inspection welcome and test drive with me driving available for the serious buyer, No messers please.
