Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You might think a Cobra is an unattainable dream, and you’d be right. However, a replica that looks just like one and works rather better is not only attainable – it costs about the same as a Toyota. Iain Ayre has been reviewing, building and designing Cobra replicas for decades and there’s nobody better to have in your pocket when you stop dreaming and start checking out buying or building one for real. Although the book is general and applies to all Cobra types, specific American Cobras mentioned by name in copy or captions and photographed are Cutting Edge, Everett-Morrison, Shell Valley, Factory Five and West Coast.

About the Author

Iain Ayre has written two previous guides to British Cobra replicas. He writes about extreme-performance cars for Kit Car magazine (UK) and Kit Car Builder (USA), and recently published The Kitcar Manual. He has written two major books on TVR, and others on slower cars such as Ferraris, Maseratis, and Porsches. He built his first kit car in the 1980s, and his first Cobra replica in the 1990s – a Cobretti with Jaguar axles and a Chevrolet V8. His second Cobra was a budget V8 upgrade as recommended in British Cobra Replicas. He is currently developing a new Ayrspeed Cobra replica, an outrageous turbocharged 450bhp, ultralight Mazda-based street and track car.
