This superb one-owner Backdraft Cobra, possibly one of the finest examples available in South Africa, was factory-built by Backdraft Racing and ordered new by the owner.
This car was built using a fibreglass body and fully-customized chassis, with no expense spared.
The engine is an imported Chevrolet 5.3 litre V8 EFI Vortec crate motor, putting out around 300hp, with custom Brackdraft Racing engine cover. The Cobra has just over 5800km on the clock, with fully documented history of all regular maintenance done. The transmission is a Tremec T5 5-speed manual with, rebuilt specifically for this application.
The chassis features independent front and rear suspension (BMW-based), with disc brakes all round, allowing for the perfect ride.
The body is meticulously finished in beautiful Indigo Blue. This deep blue colour accentuates the elegant lines of the cobra like few other colours can. The body colour is offset by the classic White racing stripes and beautifully polished brightwork.
The wheels themselves are 18” Halibrand-style lightweight alloys, with “knock on” centre caps, wrapped in high-performance Falken rubber.
Lastly the interior, taking inspiration from luxury cars of the era, was finished by using a combination of black leather for the seats, dash and door cards, and plush black carpet for the remaining areas. The beautifully finished dash houses the VDO gauges and other necessary switches, with an imported custom wooden-rimmed steering wheel. The interior is protected with a black soft-top and matching tonneau cover, ensuring a 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.
