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.

Thought we would start your day off with a view of a solid ‘rear of the year’ contender. The Spartan is a modern interpretation of a 1960s canam racer with inspiration from cars of the period. It really is a work of art. A very effective piece of art! Thanks to @cotswoldalex for the pictures taken at @silverstonecircuit @motorsportdays live ... See MoreSee Less

Welcome to a very exclusive club

I’d love to feature one of these in Beards ‘n Cars. The most beautiful design of all time. Had the great experience of telling Peter Brock that and discussing his other cars too which was awesome

If my dream came true Oliver, I’d be over to you like a shot to get one for me! Only sorry I didn’t get to drive the one you had before Covid and had also sold! They don’t hang around do they! Congratulations.

Stunning car 👌

Perfect
