Le Mans Coupes Cobra

THE SUPERFORMANCE MKIII. WHAT MAKES THE MKIII SO MUCH BETTER THAN ITS COMPETITORS?

It looks like an exact replica should. It is aesthetically and dimensionally correct. It is sure- footed, reliable and is as exciting as the great sport roadsters of the sixties.

In the UK and Europe the car is available as a complete ‘turn-key’ car with a choice of engine and transmission (within our range).

Available in any colour, and fully road legal in the UK or as a track day / Race car.

You have a choice of the Roadster, 427 S/C and the MKIII R.

Absolutely P1015, because Ken Miles is one of my heroes. We all know who really won in 1966. In a perfect world I'd have a P1015 replica and a P1075 replica parked next to each other in my garage. In a perfect world I'd also have a 427 SC and 289 FIA Cobra parked in the garage too.

Why choose??? ........OK if I have to choose the gt40 in the Gulf colors. ...
