A Maltese design firm has released sketches of its take on the present day incarnation of the iconic AC Cobra, dubbed the KC-427 – and it looks brilliant.
Racer X Design, the company behind the rendering, has attempted to stay true to the spirit of the original whilst bringing it into the new millennium by maintaining the same lines as the original.
Its small dimensions coupled with the space frame chassis mean weight would be kept to below a tonne, while a 7.0-litre Corvette Z06 V8 under the bonnet will see a power to weight ratio around 550hp/tonne (410kW/tonne).
“We will start collecting information on who might be interested in this car. The first 20 people who show interest will be offered the opportunity to purchase the KC once the cars are ready and be updated regularly with the progress,” Racer X design chief Reuben Zammit said.
The concept model is scheduled to be completed within a year, and with only 20 KC-427s to be sold internationally, they are sure to be a future classic.
