AC introduced the Cobra electric roadsterJuly 2, 2020
The British brand announced the AC Cobra Series 1 Electric electric roadster, as well as the AC Cobra 140 Charter Edition with a gasoline engine. In total, 58 copies of the cult model will be made.
AC Cobra was first introduced in the distant 1960s. Sold in some countries under the designation Shelby Cobra or AC Shelby Cobra, the roadster was powered by a Ford V8 engine located under its long hood.
For the younger generation of car enthusiasts, AC Cobra was featured in the film Ford vs. Ferrari, where Matt Damon co-starred Carol Shelby.
Previously, if you wanted to purchase AC Cobra, you would have to look for restored copies of this roadster or those that have been in the garage for a long time. However, now AC Cars is planning to release the official version of the Cobra, albeit with a different power plant.
The British brand “breathed new life” into its old model. The novelty, called AC Cobra Series 1 Electric, will receive an electric motor running on a battery of 54 kW * h.
The exterior design of the new product, like its interior, has remained untouched and is fully consistent with the original Cobra. AC Cars reported that the steering, brakes and other mechanical components have been upgraded to meet 2020 standards. Only 58 copies of the AC Cobra Series 1 Electric will be made, which will be available in blue, black, green and white.
AC Cars also released another version of its iconic Ford Cobra roadster, although this time the engine got a lot smaller. AC Cobra 140 Charter Edition – the novelty received such a name, it is equipped with the same 2.3-liter EcoBoost installation as the Ford Mustang, in design it will be identical to Series 1 Electric. The circulation is limited to 58 copies.
The AC Cobra Series 1 Electric costs £ 138,000, while the AC Cobra 140 Charter Edition is much cheaper – the minimum price is £ 85,000. Deliveries of the revived AC Cobra will begin in the last quarter of 2020.
