AC Cars unveils electric-powered Cobra Series 4

616 horsepower, 737 pound-feet of torque promised for the lightweight roadster


Calling it “the AC Superblower updated for the modern world,” AC Cars has unveiled its latest model, the AC Cobra Series 4. And it is electric powered.

The reborn British company compares this newest model to the AC Cobra 378 Superblower MkIV, that relaunched the company. However, “The new emissions-free model will feature one of strongest specification/performance combinations of any AC model’s heritage or on the road speed,” the company added.

According to AC Cars and its electric-powertrain partner, Falcon Electric, the Series 4 electric will have a 54 kw/h battery pack providing more than 616 horsepower, more than 737 pound-feet of torque, and will propel the 2,618-pound vehicle to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds. AC says the car will have 200 miles of range between recharges.

“The march of the outstandingly efficient electric AC Cobras is gathering pace now,” Alan Lubinsky, head of AC Cars, is quoted in the news release.

“Eliminating excess weight brings with it positive benefits for the car’s owner,” he continued. “Lower overall weight reduces energy consumption, allowing the batteries to deliver a longer range and the ability to drive the car to AC’s traditional high standards for speed and acceleration which the marque has achieved over many years”.

The AC Cobra Series 4—electric (the vehicle’s official name at the moment) will be priced at £168,000 ($226,855) in the UK.
