You may recall the news that the illustrious AC Cobra was returning to its native shores in the UK, with 2 new models and a third recreation being produced in small numbers – AC Cobra Series 1 electric, AC Cobra 140 Charter Edition and a recreated model of the famous AC Cobra 378 Superblower MkIV.
Well, now we have the latest model in the rebirth of AC Cars. The AC Cobra Series 4 electric or better described as ‘The AC Superblower updated for the new world’.
As a natural and modern progression to this exciting new supercar, the AC Cobra Series 4 electric, is none other than the much-loved AC Cobra 378 Superblower MkIV, the launch of which was a famous steppingstone on AC’s road to recovery and revival.
Doing it’s best to keep the planet cool, the ’emissions-free’ model will feature one of the strongest specification/performance combinations of any AC model’s heritage or on the road speed.
Working in close synergy with Derby-based technical partner Falcon Electric, AC will integrate a new power system describing the partnership as ”Passion and emotion drive us, electricity and innovation drive our vehicles”.
Tech Spec Data
Key points from the outline data sheet issued earlier today tell a story of growing affection for this remarkable car: 460 kW power, 1,000 NM torque, 54 kWh battery pack, 0-62 mph in a quick 3.8 seconds, 200 miles range and a gross weight of less than 1,190 kg.
This light-weighting process – an attribute applied by virtually every carmaker in the world – has enormous power.
The march of the outstandingly efficient electric AC Cobras is gathering pace now. Eliminating excess weight brings with it positive benefits for the car’s owner. Lower overall weight reduces energy consumption, allowing the batteries to deliver a longer range and the ability to drive the car to AC’s traditionally high standards for speed and acceleration which the marque has achieved over many years.
