AC Cobras bound for Britain once more

31 July 2020 | David Young

The AC Cobra Series 1 electric is a faithful recreation of the AC Cobra but with a modern, emissions-free electric powertrain and the AC Cobra 140 Charter Edition features the same 2.3 litre high power engine used by Ford in its latest Mustang model

AC Cobras bound for Britain once more

The two new cars are each being produced in two limited editions of 58 cars for sale in the UK. The number of cars is significant because it is 58 years since the creation of the world-famous AC Cobra model.

The two cars are now on the way to the Derby premises of Falcon Electric. Falcon is designing and will supply the electric motor and running gear for the electric model and also install the Ford-sourced petrol engine for the Charter Edition model.

Speaking today the man behind the project to return AC to sales, Alan Lubinsky, said that the significance of the shipment couldn't be overestimated. "It may be 58 years since AC first shipped Cobras around the world but it's only one month since AC Cars said we would do just that once again and now we're bang on time".
