SUPERFORMANCE MK III - Le Mans Coupes
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.

This early Superformance MKIII came to us with very dated spec with a Toyota gearbox and tired 302ci engine. Working with the client it has since been upgraded to an aluminium block 427ci by @prestige_moto with Borla 8stack, new carpet, new seats, new plumbing, new tremec gearbox, rear brakes upgraded to latest spec. Closing in on completion. Going to be a staggering car.

Beautiful looking in black. I’d be very interested to see how the pedal box worked out, in a Coyote equipped, RHD car. I installed a 427 FE in an Autokraft Mk IV and fought for every single millimetre of room. At 29” the Coyote is 2” wider across the valve covers, so an even bigger challenge. In any case would love to see how SPF made it work.

Just wondering on the time line from ordering to uk delivery and then drivetrain installation and subsequent customer delivery?

What happens if they roll it ? How does it pass SVA ?

Wow ❤️
