This superb one-owner AC Cobra Venom RT, possibly one of the finest examples available in South Africa, was hand-built by the late Alan MacNab, a renown local Cobra builder.
This car was built using a fibreglass body and fully-customised chassis, with no expense spared.
The engine is an imported 400ci Chevrolet small block crate motor, putting out around 400hp, featuring an Edlebrock Performer Series intake and matching 4-barrel carburettor, with polished AC Cobra rocker covers. The engine has been blue-printed and has just over 5300km on the clock, with fully documented history of all regular maintenance done. The transmission is a TH400 3-speed automatic with polished B&M shifter, rebuilt specifically for this application.
The chassis features independent front and rear suspension, disc brakes all round and adjustable shocks, allowing for the perfect ride height set up.
The body is meticulously finished in beautiful Platinum Metallic Silver. Although this is not your typical Cobra colour, its soft metallic colour accentuates the elegant lines of the cobra like few other colours can. The body colour is offset by the subtle (ghosted) silver racing stripes and beautifully polished brightwork.
The wheels themselves are 15” Halibrand 5-spoke polished lightweight alloys, with AC Cobra centre caps, wrapped in 235 BF Goodrich rubber up front and 295 Toyo rubber at the rear.
Lastly the interior, taking inspiration from luxury cars of the era, was finished by using a combination of grey leather for the seats and door cards, and a darker grey carpet for the remaining areas. The beautifully painted dash finishes off the interior. This houses the VDO gauges and other necessary switches, with an imported custom hand-stitched steering wheel. The interior is protected with a matching body-colour hard-top, ensuring a safe and dry car when parked.
This superb investment car is the perfect gentleman’s grand tourer, with head-turning looks and a bold V8 burble, ready to be enjoyed on any open road.
