Cobra - Pantera - Porsche 911

1. 1967 AC Cobra Continuation by Magnum Engineering

I have owned this car for around three years. It is very close to the design of the original AC Cobra having a tubular chassis and original 1967 289ci Ford Windsor engine (stroked to 302ci) matched up to a four speed Toploader gearbox. The drivetrain and chassis produce a very authentic driving experience to the original 1967 Cobra. Producing around 300BHP at the rear wheels and weighing only 950kg, this is a true handful to drive.

Engine: Ford Windsor 302ci 

Gearbox4 speed Toploader
Power: around 300hp
Acceleration: 0 – 60 mph  4.0 seconds
Top Speed: 140mph 'ish 
Wheels / Tyres: Front – 215/60VR15  Rear - 275/55VR15


2. 1972 De Tomaso Pantera Group 4

This rare car, chassis #4806 was imported from California to the UK in 2012. At it’s heart is a Ford Windsor 351ci engine bored and stroked to 403 cubic inches / 6.6 litres, producing a massive 602bhp at the wheels and 600 lbs/ft torque. With upgraded suspension, Wilwood racing 6-pot caliper brakes on the front and 4s on the back, chassis stiffening and numerous other upgrades, this vicious beast is a full on thoroughbred. To the best of my knowledge, this may be the only Group 4 Pantera in the UK.
Engine: 6.6 litre Ford Windsor V8
Gearbox: 5 speed ZF Transaxle

Power: 602 hp at rear wheels (Dyno) - 600lbs/ft torque

Acceleration: not sure

Top Speed: fast 

Wheels / Tyres: Front – 255/45ZR15 Rear - 345/35ZR15

3. 2002 Porsche 911 Turbo

My 911 Turbo is a 2002 model and is in stunning original condition. With four wheel drive, 420bhp and Porsche Stability Management this is one seriously fast car. 

Engine: 3.6 litre twin turbo charged flat six

Power: 420hp @ 6,000 revs - 415lbs/ft torque
Acceleration: 0 – 62 mph  4.2 seconds                                                
Top Speed: 190 mph (Limited)
