1999 AC Cobra Hawk Cars 289 FIA Le Mans For Sale

AC Cobra Hawk Cars 289 FIA Le Mans



FIA LE MANS
Chassis number: TBA
Registration number: ACC952A

Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this AC Cobra 289 FIA Le Mans for sale.

Based on a chassis and bodywork supplied by Hawk Cars, this is one of the finest replica 289 AC Cobra FIA ‘Le Mans’ available. This bespoke, hand-built AC Cobra 289 FIA Le was manufactured in collaboration with respected Cobra guru, Gerry Hawkridge of Hawk Cars based on his stunning MkII Cobra chassis and body.

The initial idea was to construct a MkII AC Cobra for track, sprints and hill-climbs and naturally, like many good ideas, it got totally out of hand! This AC Cobra has been featured on BBC Television performing at Brands Hatch for presenter Paul Ross. It has also featured in numerous magazine articles including Cobra, Total Kit Car and Kit Car Specification. Also seen on Ronnie's redneck road trip'...Dave TV..AC COBRA 289
