This outstanding AC Cobra by AK Sportscars is finished in Candy Apple Red Metallic with stunning Cream leather seats with Red piping. The Cobra is powered by fantastic 6. 7 litre Chevrolet V8 engine that is producing around 400 BHP and has covered 20. 00 miles since being built over a two year period in the late 1990's costing in excess of £30. 00. The Cobra was built by two highly skilled motor engineers to a first class standard and today is offered in outstanding condition.
