Time to put together a thread on the AC Cobra GT Builds

- Yes Official Factory program for on the 2015 AC Cobra MK VI
- ACO GTE tick of approval and National GT3 approved

Chassis 01 in build at the moment, had to find 100kg to bring up to the min weight.

Early WIP renders attached further development has gone into it with CFD input and released with final car launch

Corvette Racing Chev V8's delivered:
The Cobra will be running V8 from the Corvette GTLM car will be used in both GTE and GT3 cars.

Had a lot of comments about moving to Chev from Ford for the Cobra, however street cars now run Chevrolet V8's ( Shelby cobra's still run Ford ) as such under the FIA / ACO rules have to run the Chev V8's.

Last one for the night,

Australian made Albins ST6 gearboxes will be used in both variations of the Cobra.

The gearbox is used in a large variation of cars from the V8 Supercars, MARC focus to Dakar Rally 'trucks'.

Our first gear box arrived via the UK Motorsport Show
