AC Cars has unveiled their latest member of the AC Cobra family at Top Marques 2009 today. The new AC Cobra MkVI is a recreation of the original AC Cobra and build in Germany. Two versions are available; the GT and GTS.
AC Cars is the oldest car marque in the UK and equipped both cars with 6.2 litre Corvette V8 engine. The GT has 437bhp, the GTS 647bhp. The amount of torque is 550Nm against 604Nm. Top speed is 260kmh for the GT and 305kmh for the GTS. Acceleration from 0 to 62mph (100kmh) is reached within 3.3 seconds in case of the GTS.
The retro design consists of a lightweight removable hardtop with gullwing doors. The handmade aluminium-hybrid body fits taller drivers and is air conditioned. The recreation is equipped with decent breaks and suspension. Four-pot Porsche brake calipers with vented discs, 332 mm front-298 mm rear and a race-derived suspension are serving these tasks.
