Description

The AC Cobra MKIV CRS was notable for several reasons. Firstly, rather than an aluminium body it was clothed in F1-style carbon fibre (CRS stands for Carbon Road Series). Secondly, at a launch cost of £38,950, it was the most affordable Cobra ever. The composite bodies were manufactured by Pro-Tech Motorsport Ltd – an off-shoot of the F3000 racing team owned and run by former disc jockey ‘Kid Jensen’. The Ford 302 (5-Litre) engine drove through a five-speed manual gearbox. Suspension was by wishbones and coil springs all-round and braking by AP Racing ventilated discs at each corner. The total production run is thought to have been just 37 cars.

Finished in Light Blue Metallic with a contrasting Mushroom Leather interior, this fabulous example of the rare Carbon Road Series model has had just one owner from new, and in that time has covered a mere 3,000 miles. During his ownership the car has been maintained by AC and also specialists Redline Engineering, and is offered for sale for the first time in almost 20 years. A true collectors-grade example and a fabulous driving machine.
