New AC Cobra Mark VI coming out at Autosport International image

While all eyes will be turned on the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the motorsport aficionados living in Europe will be keenly interested on the Autosport International event coming out live starting January 12.

More importantly, the British distributor of the UK-American sports car will be on point to reveal the latest take on the classic Cobra. And according to MacG Racing, the Cobra Mark VI is in full compliance with EU regulations and can even be had in right-hand drive. More so, the motorsport company is even developing FIA-compatible GT4, GT3, and GTE versions of the Cobra Mark VI alongside AC Automotive. Go for the base configuration and you get the Cobra Mark VI in aluminum epoxy body with tubular steel frame, racing-inspired wishbone suspension, KW adjustable shocks, Brembo brakes, a manual transmission, and even perks such as leather heated seats, and electrically adjustable pedals.


Motivation is provided by a 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 churning out 437 horsepower and 431 pound-feet (585 Nm) of torque at 4,600 rpm. Because the Cobra is as barren as it gets- tipping the scales at just 2,315 pounds (1,050 kilograms), you’re getting serious performance out of the package. The sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) is handled in just 3.7 seconds while top speed is billed at 278 km/h (173 mph).
