0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds and with a top speed of 165 mph in 1966, pretty darn impressive!

This is still an amazing car even today, Both in looks and performance. Its somewhat timeless, Cobras definitely go down in history as one of THE all time greats, If not the.

AND a 7.0L V8 without giving 2 shites about squeezing as much power out as they can, Big liters, Not given a shite about Mpg, Light weight, Hell yes!

The AC Cobra 427 is the only car from the '60s that could hang with a big block Corvette.
