Power is provided by the Corvette’s 6.2-liter V8 engine which produces 437 bhp in GT form and 647 bhp in the GTS.
AC Cars will use this month's Top Marques auto show in Monaco to launch their new Cobra MkVI supercar.
Featuring a retro design and a lightweight removable hardtop which comes with gull-wing doors, the new Cobra MkVI is built in Heyda, Germany by Gullwing GmbH. Weighing in at just 1025 kg (2260 lbs), the new supercar boasts aluminum bodywork and a hand built tubular space-frame chassis.
Power is provided by the Corvette's 6.2-liter V8 engine which produces 437 bhp in GT and 647 bhp in the GTS. In terms of performance, the company estimates that the GTS will be able to rocket from 0-62 mph in just 3.3 seconds. Of course true sports cars are measured by more than just speed, so AC Cars decided to equip the new MkVI with Porsche-sourced brakes with vented discs that measure 332 mm front and 298 mm rear as well as a race-derived suspension.
The interior will feature a luxurious cabin which will come with premium German leather upholstery and standard air conditioning.
With production currently underway, AC Cars is working on setting up a distribution and service network in Europe to sell and maintain the cars.
