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.

The team at @motorsportdays live at Silverstone alongside our GT40. What a great event. Getting hads on with the cars is what it is all about. Really grateful for our team coming to help and support. And to our clients and potential clients who drive the car well and got to experience our cars on track. Maybe we should start doing more trackday experiences for people to try our cars...watch this space.

Had a great day with you on Saturday, thanks again to you all for letting me get behind the wheel. I'm still not sure if my drive was the highlight of my day, or being chauffeured round in the passenger seat by Ollie! 👍

Always up for joining you on track...

My uncle was speaking to you at the show and he said you have an FIA HTP car in build.... would be interested in hearing more. Andy

fab photo!!

Nigel - as always; you’re looking great!

They look good on track

A nice view today! On track in one of our clients #shelbydaytonacobra following our demo #gt40. Come say hi at @motorsportdays live tomorrow @silverstonecircuit they are even playing the @englandrugby #WorldCupFinal on a big screen. Come on England (although our cars are factory produced in South Africa so maybe we should not cheer too loud!)
