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.

But please don't blame the Cobra, it did not cause the 70 limit. That is a myth confirmed by Jack Sears. And if you don't know who he was then you are not a real Cobra nut.

I thought it was the E Type Jaguar doing 150 mph that brought in the 70 mph speed limit.

wrong Cobra coupe; this is the one that exceeded 180 mph on the M1 motorway:

What they said . .

Speed limit enforcer... 😉

What he said ... 😂😉
