Description

FOR SALE; Cobretti Viper V8 // 2 Owners // Excellent History

EQUIPMENT
427 Replica, Chevy 5.7ltr 350cu V8, Side Exit exhausts, Jaguar XJ6 Suspension with independent wishbones, Coilover shock abosrbers, Jaguar XJ6 Servo assisted braking system, Blue racing harnesses, Dark blue carpets, Push button starter, Battery Isolator, Manual Heater, Radio CD Pioneer headunit.

EXTERIOR
Finished in Avus Blue metallic, the construction of this Cobretti is made out of GRP and presents in great condition. The paint still has a deep lustre and along with the wide arches and low slung body creates quite the impression when out on the road.

The Chrome work is bright and free from blemishes, it is perfectly placed and abundant around the body with large front and rear bumpers, side grilles, roll over hoop, mirrors, fuel filler, rear arch covers and the impressive, huge side exit exhausts.

INTERIOR
The option to pop the small doors and step in or just hop straight over is there depending on athletic ability and the need to show off! The interior is sparse but luxurious and comfortable, the classic bucket seats snug and beautifully finished in soft cream leather. This (leather) extends to the dash, door cards, gear and hand brake covers, a wonderful contrast and compliment to the blue paintwork. Dark blue carpets and blue harnesses finished in blue, tie the interior and exterior together.

The driving position is low slung with the period wooden steering wheel falling to hand comfortably, dials are courtesy of period Smith units and finish off the interior nicely.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Press the starter button and the 5.7ltr 350cu V8 bursts into life and settles into that familiar deep burble that only a V8 can produce. Select drive on the Quick shifter automatic transmission and the Viper pulls anyway smoothly with a wonderful growl from the side exit stainless steel exhaust system. An intense and visceral experience with noise and wind ensuring that every outing is an event.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The Viper is fitted with period looking Halibrands, finished with black centres, a polished rim and matching centre lock nut which look fantastic against the drama of the body styling.

These are wrapped with B F Goodridge tyres all round with good tread. Brakes present well under inspection with plenty of pad and disc material remaining.
