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.

How about the 1963 Pontiac Tempest that beat all the Corvettes and Ferrari 250 GTOs at Daytona?

The Grand Sport is a great car, but i would choose the Cobra. Because it‘s my dreamcar since i was a little boy😍

Why choose!!!!!

Lu Do !

Had the owner of this epic Gulf GT40 down to see his car for the first time today after an extended wait due to Covid and the lockdown. Great to see him and his wife again and a real pleasure showing the car in the flesh.

Next up on the production line. Huge gratitude to the owner for their patience as shipping was suspended due to lockdown. Cannot wait to get the build going.
All our cars arrive as a 'turn key minus' unit: fully painted, interior fitted, plumbing and wiring installed and suspension on ready for your choice of power plant and for us to build and registers or you can build your own. Contact oliver@lemanscoupes.com to find out more
