Description

William I'Anson Ltd are delighted to offer for sale the 2019 Goodwood Revival RAC TT Winning, and Goodwood Cobra Lap Record Holding 1965 AC Cobra 289.

With a clear, no questions, continuous history from new, confirmed by the ACOC; COB 6044 offers the rare opportunity to acquire a genuine Cobra prepared to current competitive race winning specification while still retaining its all important originality. A point it just proved indefatigably by taking such a defining victory in the crown jewel of all historic races, Goodwood’s prestigious Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy.

Driven to pole position in last year’s TT by Porsche Works Driver and three time Le Mans 24 Hour winner and FIA World Endurance Champion, André Lotterer. His staggering pole lap of 1:24.073 is the fastest ever recorded lap for a Cobra around the hallowed Goodwood circuit. He and the owner then went on to convert their pole position to outright victory in one of the most exciting TTs in a number of years.

Consigned to K.N. Rudd Ltd. of Byfleet in 1965, it still bears the registration SHK 670D which it has had since 1966 and has been maintained professionally from new, as documented in the extensive history file that features the original buff log book, service history back to 12,000 miles, invoices back to 1976, MOT certificates back to 1977, current FIA Papers as well as a spare set of Halibrand wheels, and removable single roll hoop.

First prepared for historic racing by well known Cobra racer Bill Bridges and prepared to current TT winning specification by Ian Gwynne and his team at BGMsport. Invoices totalling in excess of £200k give an indication of the level to which COB 6044 has been prepared.

This is your chance to pick up the mantel and experience historic racing at its highest level.

There are not many cars that you can win the a race like the TT in and still drive to the pub, but COB 6044 has done just that!
