West County Cars Ltd. are proud to present this stunning Superformance MKIII Shelby Cobra with a Ford 302 cubic inch cast iron block V8 with 4 barrel Holley carburetor, 5 speed manual gearbox and its RIGHT HAND DRIVE!

The Superformance MKIII is the only Cobra built under license from Carroll Shelby Licensing Inc. What makes the MKIII so much better than its competitors? It looks like an exact replica should. It is sure-footed, reliable and is as exciting as the great sport roadsters of the sixties. The SPF MKIII is the next best thing to a real Cobra and at a fraction of the cost.

This particular Cobra was featured at the 2004 Auto Africa show; it has also won numerous awards from the South Africa Cobra Club and various South African classic car shows. Not only does this vehicle have an extremely rare paint colour, which we believe it may be the only one in the world out of the Superformance Factory; but it also has a very special VIN number starting with AC and ending in 1965. A further benefit for the UK market is that it is RHD and titled as a 1965 Historic.
