The AC Cobra Series 1 electric will be shown to the public for the first time ever at the Farnborough show, which will take place on August 19-22, 2021.
As WhichEV reported, the new EV version of the AC Cobra Series 4 will be able to go from 0 to 62 mph in a quick 3.8 seconds and it will boast 460 kw power (617hp) as well as a 54-kwh battery pack. The Series 1 has the same range but a more modest 230 kw (308hp) motor delivering 0 to 62 mph in 6.7 seconds.
Retaining the iconic Cobra styling, the new vehicle features a specifically engineered electric powertrain, developed by technical partner Falcon Electric that will generate around 150-miles of range.
The British Motor Show CEO, Andy Entwistle, is ecstatic that iconic brand has chosen the event to unveil its new and shiny Cobra.
“With an unrivalled heritage and a spiritual home just a stone’s throw from our Farnborough venue, it’s an absolute honour to have the new AC Cobra Series 1 Electric at the show,” he said. “It’s an incredible vehicle that manages to embody the spirit of electric cars, supercars, classic cars and new cars. We’ve got all of those at the show, but the new AC is arguably the only one that ticks all of the boxes at once.”
The British Motor Show tickets cost just £18.50, or £37 for a family for a family of four.
