Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer this low mileage AC Cobra Superblower, one of the most iconic, and instantly recognizable sports cars in the world. This is production car number 9 from AC Cars.
The AC Cobra is synonymous across the globe for fast, muscular motoring and for many years in its original guise was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the World’s fastest production car. This AC Superblower built by the AC Car Group Ltd, in Weybridge, is powered by a supercharged Ford Motorsport 5.0 litre V8 engine. The car is therefore still able to combine mighty power with unique and distinctive styling.
Conceived more than 50 years ago by Carroll Shelby from the original AC Ace, the all-aluminium body continued to be hand crafted by AC Cars using the original tooling and retained the enduring good looks that found it favour with a loyal circle of driving enthusiasts around the world.
The Superblower’s interior is trimmed with finest English leather and deep pile wool carpeting. Superblower motoring has more to do with muscle-power than creature comfort. When the Cobra was originally conceived it developed a well-earned reputation for delivering the ultimate in performance.
The AC Superblower has maintained that reputation, and through the introduction of supercharging, has restored this motoring icon’s extremes of power, putting 355 bhp at the driver’s disposal. A maximum torque figure of 385 lb/ft @ 3,750 rpm is equally impressive. Top speed is 165 mph and the Superblower delivers a 0-60 mph time of a blistering 4.2 seconds.
Our car is presented in outstanding condition, and has been used sparingly since production. During Hexagons ownership of the car, the dashboard and interior have been put back to the original AC Cobra specification to further enhance this cars authenticity. This truly is a piece of British motoring folklore. The Cobra Superblower will provide thrills galore for its new owner, and attract numerous admirers wherever it travels.
