Dubbed as ‘The AC Cobra updated for a new age’, the latest model from AC Cars is The AC Cobra Series 4-electric.
With heritage, style, performance and total emissions free capability, it also has a true close relation to the much-loved AC Cobra 378 Superblower, the launch of which was crucial on AC’s road to recovery.
To add to this, for AC owners wishing to improve their carbon footprints, the first AC Cobra Series-electric pre-production model is ready for the road! Based on the AC Cobra Mk IV, the Series 4 has the bigger of the two Cobra body styles (shared with the Superblower) while the new Series 1 has a smaller body and is based on the AC Cobra 289 MkII petrol-engined version.
The new emissions-free models will feature one of the strongest specification and performance combinations of any model in the marque’s heritage, setting the cars firmly in the highest echelons of sports car greatness.
AC has introduced a power system for a new age thanks to the input of its Derby-based technical partner Falcon Electric who are on a mission to make electronic vehicles just as or if not more exciting.
Priced at £148,000 plus any on-the-road charges, there are two versions of the AC Cobra Series 4-electric available. The 230kW version delivers 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds, has an estimated range of 190 miles and weighs just 1,190kg. In contrast the 460kW version, priced at £168,000 plus any on-the-road charges, achieves 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds, has an estimated range of over 160 miles and a weight of 1,240kg.
“The march of the outstandingly efficient electric AC Cobras is gathering pace now,” said Alan Lubinsky, the man whose vision, drive and energy has sustained AC Cars for almost a quarter of a Century.
Alan Lubinsky commented, “Eliminating excess weight brings with it positive benefits for the car’s owner. Lower overall weight reduces energy consumption, allowing the batteries to deliver a longer range and the ability to drive the car to AC’s traditional high standards for speed and acceleration which the marque has achieved over many years”.
Reservations are now being taken on the AC Cars website or via email at email@example.com, and the first customer deliveries of the car are expected in late 2021.
