AC Cobra Driving Experiences

The AC Cobra is a classic Transatlantic sports car made in the early 1960s. Original versions of the AC Cobra are rare and extremely expensive, but modern day replicas using Jaguar and Rover engines are very true to the originals and equally fun to drive. Its bubbling V8 engine powers out 485 bhp and top speeds of 160 mph, and will send a shiver up your spine as you put your pedal to the metal, and only the most seasoned driver can handle it. Take a look below to browse our full range of AC Cobra driving experiences to book at venues nationwide on TrackDays.

Information About the AC Cobra

The result of a joint partnership between the heritage car manufacturer AC Cars in the UK, and Shelby Racing over in the US, the AC Cobra proved an iconic sports car from its launch in 1962, built between their respective plants in Thames Ditton, Surrey and Los Angeles, California.

Produced with assistance and input from Ford, who were looking to corner in on the market that was then dominated by Chevrolet’s Corvette model in terms of performance cars, it was the first of AC’s models to be kitted out with a lightweight, small block V8 engine, succeeding the straight-6 engines that had always been in their previous cars.

And thus a sports car was born that was revolutionary in all aspects, in terms of aerodynamics, handling and most importantly of all, power. The V8 on the Cobra roars into life with 485 bhp, accelerating rapidly from 0 - 60 mph in less than 5 seconds, 0 - 100 mph in 10.2 seconds, and you can expect to reach top speeds of 160 mph.

Cool Facts About the AC Cobra

Such was the popularity of the AC Cobra, that AC Cars subsequently produced a version of the car for use in the popular American motorsport of drag racing in 1963. The model, called the Dragon Snake, went on to win several NHRA National events, with Bruce Larson and Ed Hardrick racing them to pole position.

Another version of the Cobra, called the Shelby Daytona Coupe, was produced in 1964, for a run of six models, to compete in the world famous 24 Hours of Le Mans race. It came second in the Grand Tourer category that same year.

Terms and Conditions

All experiences are subject to availability. The most recent information on dates when an event may be available can be checked by looking at the calendars on the website, or when you have activated and logged in with your voucher. Please note not all spaces are shown online so if you cannot see spaces for your event please call or email for dates. We will do our best to secure your preferred choice of event, venue and date, but to avoid disappointment book as early as possible, especially for peak times such as weekends and the summer months which book up very quickly. Do not purchase an experience for yourself or as a gift that has a choice of venues if you or the person it is for are only able to travel to one of the choices. Once you are booked, you are bound by the terms and conditions of the event host of which a copy can be made available upon request. In most circumstances, a cancellation cannot be made once a date has been booked.

When booking by phone or online you should not make arrangements in connection with an Event until you have received your final booking confirmation stating your date and time (this does not include the automatic purchase email you receive that confirms what you have just ordered). Your final confirmation will usually arrive within 48 hours of making the purchase. For voucher redemption see 'voucher conditions' below. Where specific elements of an Event such as vehicles or equipment are not available due to mechanical breakdown, we reserve the right to make reasonable substitutions on the day. If this is not possible we reserve the right to cancel the experience at short notice.

Voucher holders must make a prior booking and receive confirmation in order that an open voucher can be redeemed. We recommend that when you have chosen your experience you redeem your voucher at least 21 days in advance of taking your selected experience. We do not guarantee availability on all events, even if the date is showing, so if a chosen event is full or you cannot find a suitable date during the validity period of your voucher then the credit can be used towards an alternative event. Do not arrive at a venue expecting to be able to use your voucher without making a prior booking and receiving a booking confirmation. Trackdays.co.uk will not be held liable for any costs incurred in such circumstances.

Unless stated otherwise, vouchers are valid for one person only. Where necessary a top-up payment can be made to increase the value of a voucher to book a higher priced event. Note that during the out of season months the price of experience may change. If the price of the event is lower than the value of the voucher the remaining credit will be held for use until the vouchers expiry date. We recommend booking as early as possible as you must have undertaken your experience before the expiry date printed on the front of your Voucher. All vouchers will be valid for use up to the expiry date displayed, but after this date, vouchers will automatically expire and cannot be reinstated under any circumstances. Trackdays.co.uk staff are not responsible for reminding or informing customers when a voucher is due to expire. A voucher holder may book a date which is outside of the expiration date displayed on the voucher but must extend the expiry of their voucher for an administration fee. This must be processed before the original expiry date. Voucher credit cannot be used for extension fees or to pay for booking protection.
