The AC Superblower was produced by AC Cars at the original manufacturing facilities of the AC Cobra in Brooklands, Surrey. The Superblower was totally hand built using the traditional coach building methods by skilled craftsmen. The bodywork of pure aluminium was hand rolled and formed on jigs which were used in the 1960s to produce the original Cobras. Powered by a 5.0 litre Ford V8 engine that produces 350 bhp with an estimated top speed of 165 mph and an electrifying 0-60 mph in 4.2 secs.
