Video: Quality Time with an AC Cobra 289

Submitted by on August 24, 2014

AC Cobra 289

Spend 45 delicious seconds with one of Carrol Shelby’s awe inspiring AC Cobra 289s in this short and sweet video.

Boasting curves for days, an awesome soundtrack provided by a 289 cubic inch small-black Ford V8, a significant history and lots and lots of cool flick switches, this an AC Cobra 289 which we’d like to spend more time with.

It’s one of Carrol Shelby’s own; a car which his race team owned and raced with drivers like Phil Hill and Dan Gurney.

Here we see it testing for the Goodwood Revival, and if you head to the event in 2014 you’ll be able to enjoy it in person and in full song, with its track day silencers removed.
