1973 AC Cobra 289 FIA HTP For Sale

This AC Cobra 289 by Autocraft was first road registered in 1973 and for nearly four decades remained in regular use as a road car. In 2009 it was professionally rebuilt as a race car by respected race prep specialists and made its competition debut in 2011.
Since that that it has been successfully raced and proved highly competitive. It has consistently been a front-running car in the Masters; GTSCC and HSCC events, and has been invited to Goodwood in the past.
With new FIA HTP (Appendix K) papers granted in 2022, it features a 289 cubic inch 460 bhp engine by Cobra go-to man Steve Warrior; a Roltek gearbox and a Gripper differential all having been rebuilt with only one race on the clock. Running on magnesium wheels, with stainless steel exhaust system and plumbed-in FEV fire extinguisher system and many bespoke parts fitted when first built by MJR, this well-sorted example has been a regular race participant for more than a decade, and a Cobra with a fifty-year history.
A competitive car competitively priced. Please call for more details.
