The MKIV Cobra was manufactured by AC/Autokraft at Brooklands Motor Circuit.

Following delivery of the vehicle it was exported to Portugal later that year. After a short term overseas it was repatriated by its second owner Mr Leslie Kitson in August of 1988.
Under Mr Kitson’s care the motorcar was dispatched to Autokraft for a manual gearbox conversion.
The paperwork indicates that the following mechanical upgrades had been installed over a 6 year period;
Detachable roll over bar ( included in sale, not mounted)
Harvey Bailey front/rear anti roll bars
Uprated front and rear coil springs
