This particular car is one of few constructed by Cape Cobra Vehicles SA, a well-known manufacturer in South Africa of mainly Cobra and some GT40 replica’s. In 2005 this car was imported into Germany by the dealer who imports and sells the Cape Cobra GT40 replica’s and also the CAV GT40 replica’s. Soon after road-registering the car in 2005 it was sold to the first owner. In order to make this car a competitive track-car he had the car transported to a specialist in the UK. There the car was fitted with wider GT40 wheels and a 430 HP stroker 347 engine with a Holley 750 carburettor. Also different rear-suspension was fitted, together with the better and more desirable ZF-RBT 5-speed gearbox, limited slip unit and Brembo brake callipers.After some racing the car proved to have far better performance and road-holding. But after having done only a total of 5 racing-hours in various local races the owner decided that the car was good enough for even more horse-power. This time a special small block racing-engine with 363 cubic inch was constructed with down-draft 48-Weber carburettors. This engine has 527 HP on the dyno.Today this car is a real fast and impressive performer on the road and track. It is very complete and comes with the hardly used 430 HP stroker 347 engine extra, and an extra front boot-lid, a set of wheels, spinners and various tyres and minor spares.
