Introduced in 1962, the AC Cobraalso known as Shelby Cobrawas a two-door roaster with as AC body and a Ford engine. Thought by Carroll Shelby, the AC Cobra had excellent handling capabilities and impressive performance thanks to the combination of a light and aerodynamic body with a potent Ford V8 engine. In order to support the additional power brought by the new V8 engine, the AC chassis had to be altered and the steel multi-tube frame was widened and strengthened. The first cars boasted a 260 or 289-cubic-inches engine producing 306 hp, then updated to a 427-cubic-inches with 425 hp. The latter could reach a top speed of 165 mph and fly from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. Special editions of the AC Cobra were made along the road, including the 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 Super Snake with its 800-hp engine.
