AC Cobra MkVI
Makers of the classic American GT racing icon, AC Cars have recently revealed their sixth generation Cobra at the Top Marques car show in Monaco. The MkVI is an open-top sports car based on the design of the Le Mans winning AC Cobra built by Carroll Shelby in the 1960’s featuring many of the original car’s physical characteristics while incorporating a lot of modern technology under the skin.
The AC Cobra MKVI will be offered in two versions: GT and GTS. The GT will get a 6.2 Liter V8 that will produce a maximum output of 437 HP, while the GTS will deliver a ground pounding 647 HP. Weighing in at only 1,025 Kg, the lightweight GTS sports car is capable of hitting 60 MPH from a standstill in approximately 3.3 seconds.
The new Cobra was built incorporating an all new aluminum body construction featuring a light weight gull wing hardtop.
