British Super Sports Car – AC Superblower 1997

The superblower is a British super sports car, one would think that it is sitting in a 65 cobra, when the engine is started and the engine whistle is felt it gives the idea of the true age of the machine, it is the supercharger that is under the hood.

Engine

A supercharged 5-liter V8 engine, the same one used by the Mustan Gt. Modified by Ford to accommodate a turbocharger that allows it to generate 355 Hp, which is higher than the 250Hp produced by the naturally aspirated cobra.

The style is retro circular streetlights, the exterior aerodynamic line, keeps the chassis separate from the cobra, with the two longitudinal axes in aluminum tube, chrome roll bar that give stability to the vehicle. Artisanal 16-gauge aluminum alloy bodywork, perfectly welded, 60s-style wheels evoking those of Hallibrand seen on the Cobra.
