We pull back the covers this week on the ever-popular super car, AC. Get comfortable in the driver’s seat of this sleek and powerful machine and push it to its limits on Oahu’s 1000 miles of road. This rare and wonderful car makes a great addition to Test Drive Unlimited and its fleet of the world’s most desirable cars.

AC Cobra 289

Following on from the original Cobra 260, the 289 offered even more power than the earlier car. The 289 used a revised 4727cc (289 cu") Ford V8 but retained the original steering arrangement and minuscule coachwork. The engine puts out 271 hp at 5750 rpm and has a top speed of 140 mph and a 0 – 60 acceleration of 5.2 seconds.

AC Cobra 427

In 1964 the most powerful AC Cobra entered production, the Cobra 427. The 427 used the 7 litre, big block Ford V8, which developed over 400bhp in standard form and could be tuned to even higher levels for track use. The chassis and suspension were redesigned to enable the car to cope with the huge power increase along with many smaller changes. The engine puts out 480 hp at 6500 rpm and has a top speed of 180 mph and a 0 – 60 mph acceleration of less than four seconds.
