Pilgrim Cobra
The Cobra, one of the last uncompromising adventurers, before George Naders ushered in the new era of “small,
detoxed, safe” cars with his book Unsafe At Any Speed! Developed by AC Cars and the racing driver Carroll Shelby
in 1962, the Cobra is a lightweight with a huge engine and an open structure, which has in the mean time acquired
immortality as a sports car both in racing and on the road. Our Pilgrim Cobra recreation from 1971, with a full old-timer
licence, is equipped with a V8 engine, has a racing clutch, is only 1,100 kg in unladen weight, and is a “licence to
have fun”.
