Description

AC has thirty six years association with the Superblower and its illustrious predecessor, the Cobra – one of the best known models in the lexicon of classic sports cars. The Cobra is a by-word for fast, muscular motoring and for many years in its original guise was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the worlds fastest production car. Now in its latest reincarnation, the AC Superblower – powered by a supercharged 5.0 litre V8 engine – still combines mighty power with unique and distinctive body styling.

Conceived more than 40 years ago from the original AC Ace, the all-aluminium body continues to be hand crafted using the original tooling and retains the enduring good looks which have found it favour with a loyal circle of driving enthusiasts around the world.

The Superblower’s interior is trimmed with finest English leather and deep pile wool carpeting. Superblower motoring has more to do with muscle-power than creature comfort, however. When the Cobra was originally conceived it developed a well-earned reputation for delivering the ultimate in performance.

Today’s Superblower has changed all that, and – through the introduction of supercharging – has restored this motoring icons extremes of power, putting 320 entirely useable bhp at the driver’s disposal. Top speed is 155 mph and the Superblower delivers a 0-60 mph time of a blistering 4.2 seconds.

This wonderful Aluminium AC Superblower has covered a mere 700 miles from new, and is the 18th of 18 cars built, with just one single private owner from new. The vendor has confirmed with documentation that this is the last car built by AC Cars.

Finished in arctic silver over maroon this example has to be the lowest mileage car available on the market worldwide. We are advised the car was fitted with every possible option by AC, including engine and performance upgrades and handling kits making it quite simply unique. In stunning as new condition, this, the last Superblower would grace and surely be a must have for any significant worldwide AC collection.
