Est. 340hp, 289 cu. in. overhead valve V8 engine, four-speed transmission, ladder-type steel tubing chassis with independent front and rear suspension via A-arms, transverse leaf springs and tubular shock absorbers, four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 90".

This Cobra, chassis CSX 2142, is one of the most important Cobras ever to make its way onto a racetrack. It was one of two AC Cobra Roadsters to be entered by the factory at the 1963 Le Mans race, the other one being a right-hand drive example. Both cars competed with the stunning and aerodynamic semi-fastback alloy hardtop. This was the first car that was fitted with the hardtop, which improved its aerodynamics and thereby increased top speed on the Le Mans circuit. The two cars were also equipped with oversize 30.8-gallon fuel tanks, hood scoops, side cooling vents and light alloy Dunlop wheels. All the modifications were specifically made with the Le Mans victory in mind.
