Just 26 MkIII 289 Cobras were made before AC Cars collapsed in 1967 and so the enduring popular image of the marque is the Shelby 427 Cobra which became legend after winning class honours at Le Mans in 1965.
MD Andrew Burrows chose the rare MkIII 289 for his inspiration, not only because he regarded this as the best AC model ever made but also to differentiate his car from the majority of others available at the time. Unlike its more overtly muscular American brother, the 289 was lighter, more agile and aimed very much at the European landscape of narrow, winding roads.
Based on the AC Mk.III 289, the Mk.III comes with 2 chassis options. The first utilises refurbished Jaguar suspension whereas the second "Euro" option uses bespoke racing suspension, with double wishbone coilover suspension and cast alloy uprights
