2001 Superformance AC Mark III Cobra Replica
s/n K1004AM3471
Guardsman Blue with White Stripes and Black Leather Interior

Superformance’s 700 series Cobra replicas have established the company as a builder of high-quality replicas that feature a number of thoughtful updates to make the car very usable in modern traffic. From the aluminum radiator to the full fresh air ventilation system to the subtly repositioned door hinges to allow for more space for the driver’s shin, Superformance’s replicas are superbly made and carefully thought out. With a 5-speed transmission, four wheel independent suspension and high quality fiberglass body, they also competent high performance machines that also maintain the spirit of the original Cobra. At the same time, they maintain a high level of authenticity in terms of the aesthetic experience, right down to the counterclockwise Smiths speedometer and riveted hood scoop.

This particular car was built in 1998 by Top of the Hill Motors in Livermore, California, and has covered approximatlye 8600 miles since construction. It is fitted with a 460 cubic inch engine and 5-speed Tremec gearbox, and is optioned with S/C equipment, leather seats, sun visors, lift posts, tonneau cover, Halibrand pin drive replica wheels, and fire extinguisher. It has had two owners and has had its SB100 approval completed, which allows it to be registered in California while remaining smog exempt. This is a several month process that requires several thousand dollars, so this is very attractive to potential California buyers.

This car is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. The paint is high quality and reflects Superformance’s craftsmanship. There are very few flaws to speak of, with only light chipping to the front of the car and on the rear fenders from road use, as well as afew chips in the door jambs. There are no signs of damage or repair. The glass, lights, and lenses are all excellent, as are the wheels.

The interior is in similarly nice condition and has a very authentic appearance. The instruments are the correct Smiths and Lucas items throughout, and switch gear is also faithful to authentic Cobras. The car has a wood-rimmed steering wheel and the cast AC pedals have also been faithfully recreated. The seats are upholstered in high quality black and the interior is free from significant wear or damage. The interior also features racing type competition belts from Crow Industries.

The engine compartment is very tidy and professionally built up. The correct appearing Cobra valve covers are installed, along with air cleaner cover. There are no signs of leakage of any kind, and the motor is extremely clean throughout.

The trunk is fully finished with black carpeting and there is also a full tonneau cover.

The car is complete with manual and cover


This is a fine opportunity to acquire a high quality replica of one of motoring’s true legends. The subtle modernizations make the car truly usable in today`s world, yet at the same, the car preserves the raw and visceral driving experience that immortalized the AC Cobra. Indeed, one only needs to listen to the glorious noise of the V8 from the side pipes to remember what this car is all about. This particular example, with its desirable options, attractive color, and excellent mechanical state is ideal for someone who has always admired the Cobra and wants to enjoy the car with peace of mind.
