Superformance MKIII

The Superformance MKIII is the only Cobra replica built under license from Carroll Shelby Licensing Inc.

What makes the MKIII so much better than its competitors? It looks like an exact replica should. It is sure-footed, reliable and is as exciting as the great sport roadsters of the sixties. Each rolling chassis comes completely assembled and painted, less engine and transmission.
