ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Shelby Cobra Driving Experience

Sit in the driver's seat of a classic AC Cobra for three miles of unforgettable driving, available at a variety of UK tracks!

Here’s a chance to drive a transatlantic motoring icon and one of Experience Days’ favourite classic cars. Get behind the wheel of a V8 AC Cobra, and take the racing legend for a three-mile spin of your chosen circuit.

The AC Cobra was the result of a collaboration between the British manufacturer, AC Cars, and American designer, Carroll Shelby. The lightweight AC body was modified to accept a powerful Ford V8 – and thus a star was born. Cobras dominated the mid-sixties racing world and the Mark III model held the Guinness World Record for fastest production car. Elvis raced a Cobra 427 in the 1966 musical comedy, Spinout, and they’ve made numerous cinematic appearances since. On arrival at your chosen circuit, you’ll be greeted and briefed by a professional instructor, before hopping in the driving seat. You’ll then have three miles of the track to put the Cobra through its paces, with your instructor on hand to offer driving tips and guidance.

The Classic AC Cobra Driving Experience is a chance to put your foot down in a true icon. An Experience Days gift voucher would keep any classic car fan happy.
