Information From Contemporary Cobra's Literature Package:
Made in the USA. The Contemporary is simply one of the most accurate and highly regarded Cobra replicas ever produced. Contemporary has been the most respected name in the reproduction Cobra market for over 30 years. Produced by the legendary Contemporary Classic Motor Car Company of Mamaroneck, New York, it has long been recognized for creating the most precise rendition and the best engineered of all the aftermarket Cobras.
The Contemporary Cobra replica is not a 2nd, 3rd or 4th generation copy of a body that was incorrect to start with. Ours is patterned directly from our founder's(Peter Bayer) original SC Cobra that was purchased directly from Carrol Shelby, CSX3045, and comes complete with correctly shaped and flared rear fenders, and provisions for a 3-1/2 Le Mans fuel filler cap. Inner panels including front fender wells, floor pan/foot box assembly, and trunk liner are double bonded (bonded from both sides of the panel) to the body shell in a close tolerance assembly fixture which rendered proper alignment of all inner panels within the one-piece body shell. As delivered to the purchaser, the body, complete with inner panels is in effect a robust monocoque unit vs. the traditional kit car with its inner panels pop riveted to the body shell. An important Contemporary exclusive is that tubular steel substructure hoops (full tubular steel tube frames) have been bonded into the hood, door, and trunk openings, the rear lip of the driver/passenger compartment and leading edge of the cowl. The Contemporary 4 OD x 1/8 round-tube chassis is based on the original, but increased wall thickness reduces the flex inherent in the AC-built chassis; it combines rigidity superior to the cut + weld square/rectangular tube frames commonly used by replica manufacturers, while simultaneously providing lower mass/lighter weight, and of course is in keeping with the design and specifications of the original car.' The round tube chassis is not only more authentic but more rigid and stronger which results in better handling and driving performance.
THIS IS A CLOSE AS YOU WILL GET TO THE ORIGINAL CAR AT 1/10 OF THE PRICE!
A STEAL FOR SUCH A BEAUTIFUL CAR. Tens of thousands were spent on the restoration. 100's of labor hours and parts.
Why spend 50K on an inferior Factory Five kit car when you can own a true piece of history. Contemporary's are the only true replica that increases in value over the other kit cars
Do yourself a favor and research Contemporary Cobra and you will see the difference.
