The retro-flavored two-seater packs a V8 with 654 horsepower and an available six-speed manual trans, but it will be expensive.
At a glance, one might think the car featured here is a proper 1960s Shelby Cobra, an earlier AC Cobra, or one of the many kit cars made through the years. In fact, it’s a brand new AC Cobra from UK-based AC Cars, called the GT Roadster.
Originally teased in December 2022, the photos here represent our first look at the modernized classic but this isn’t a full reveal. That is scheduled for April, but with a handful of images showing the car from all aspects, there isn’t much left to the imagination. The oval grille, round headlights, long hood, and fantastically flared wheel arches look pretty much exactly like a 1960s Cobra. Aside from big wheels and body-colored mirrors, there’s little reason to think this is actually a new car.
