2013 AC COBRA RECREATION Mk4 - FACTORY 5 KIT (USA)
This beautiful AC Cobra kit was made by Factory Five Racing of Massachusetts USA, well known in the US for various kit build cars.
Built in the style of the 427 Shelby Cobra's, it has all the looks and sounds of a genuine Shelby Cobra.
Imported into Australia as a complete kit in 2014, it was then built meticulously over a 5 year period, being first registered in 2019.
Powered by a 5.0 Litre (302ci) Ford Windsor V8 engine, it delivers 212Kw (near 300bhp) to the rear wheels via a 5 speed Tremec manual gearbox. The engine was hand built by Darren Lewis Race Engines, balanced and blueprinted and featuring Ford Racing Aluminium GT40 heads, roller rockers, forged pistons, mild cam, dual plane inlet manifold and a Holley throttle body to keep the period correct look with matching "Cobra" valve covers , air filter and finally active side pipes.
Road performance figures not available, needless to say a very quick car!
Further features of this build include the drive train equally strong with a Dellow's bellhousing matched to the Mal Wood Tremec T5 gearbox and mated to a McLeod racing Hydraulic clutch.
Fully optioned, the independent rear suspension (IRS) is designed for those looking for the most comfort, authenticity and performance. It includes a welded-in cage, upper and lower tubular control arms, high end Koni mono-tuberod-end coil-over shocks (matched to the fronts) and custom assembled axles and CV joints, Ford 8.8" diff and 11" GT discs.
Similarly, the front suspension is fully adjustable Koni with Mustang 11" GT disc brakes. Wheels are 17" Halibrand with knockoffs and Nitto tyres.
We hold a comprehensive file from Australia Technology Pty Ltd, automotive engineers of Adelaide, attesting to the road worthiness of this vehicle.
Interior trim features carbon fibre and Alcantara with a matching tonneau cover made by M & C Auto trimmers of Adelaide.
