  •  Vehicle Overview
Worlds Fastest Cobra! 1 of 15 ever made, retailing for roughly $746,000 when new.German tuning shop Weineck Engineering shoehorned a MASSIVE 12.9-liter V8 (780 cubic inches) into a lightweight AC Cobra replica body, with dual Holley carburettors, four-speed manual transmission, front and rear independent suspension, and four-wheel Brembo disc brakes.The result is a fire-breathing beast that puts out 1100HP! 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds, and 0-186mph in 10 seconds!1 of 15 made, if you’re looking to get your hands on one these days, you’ve got to wait for one to show up at auction or in this case, offered from a private collection within the UK.This level of power in such a light platform, just 1,000 kilograms, provides startling performance, and can accelerate from 0–300 km/h in 10 seconds and from 0–100 km/h in less than 3 seconds.The chassis was built on a MIG-welded, self-supporting, four-inch tubular frame that provides a high amount of torsional rigidity to handle the power and torque of the engine. Weineck utilised the wider 427 Cobra body style and installed a modern independent suspension to cope with the sheer amounts of power and 1,760 Nm of torque that its drivetrain is capable of. Power is nothing without control! That’s why the car is built using a MIG welded, self-supporting tubular frame with a 4inch diameter to absorb very high torsion forces. Additionally, its body is deep drawn from carbon composite materials for maximum rigidity. The coil-spring suspension, combined with specially engineered Brembo brakes, helps the driver to control the incredible amount of power and torque available. The current owner has protected the pristine paintwork from the harsh British weather with a professional paint protection film in satin black. Future owners can choose to have this removed to reveal the bright original paintwork in deep metallic grey with the iconic red racing livery.Video Link: As tested by Grip RTL2 Germany (Germany's equivalent to Top Gear) https://youtu.be/gDfCYruytMM, Metallic Grey
