The 427 cubic inch motor is mated to a 5-speed Tremec transmission and, while no figures have been quoted by the factory, PH is confidently prepared to predict trouser-browning acceleration.
The South African built Superformance MKIII is the only Cobra replica officially licensed by Carroll Shelby. As well as its 427ci Roush motor, this MKIII-R version gets custom-trimmed Cobra seats with race harnesses, and a Monza Red paint job with silver racing stripes.
The MKIII-R was first conceived as a one-off show car last year, but enthusiastic feedback has led Superformance to offer the package as a production upgrade to all MKIIIs.
No prices have been confirmed, but if it wasn’t for the credit crunch hitting the PH bonus generator – we’d be tempted!
