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.

Black pipes, looks raw. Finally get to tune the engine tomorrow. Last 2 dates were either snowed or rained off. Looking forward to seeing what she's got.
Well, at over 500bhp it should be exciting...

There used to be a very good company called “Hometune” in your immediate area...😉😆

Is the ARB position standard now? Much more sensible than mine - and many of the originals had theirs the same as this!

In 2017 prototype 3 of the Spartan began its development. Here is a video from day one. A really solid foundation that has been refined and fine tuned to become the giant killer it now is. Aero work is complete and production is well underway for chassis #001 of 300. We are counting the days until we can reveal the final product. But for now, enjoy watching where the end product began.

Are they wrapping the whole car or just the bonnet? If the whole car how do they cope with the single piece body?
