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.
