1965 FIA Cobra Replica

Z2 Motorsports built this beautiful Cobra replica using a kit from ERA, our neighbor down the road from the shop.  Modeled after the 289 cars that dominated the American road race series, this car is equipped with a 475 horsepower 392ci engine from Ford Racing, a Tremec 5 speed manual transmission, and Jaguar independent rear end with the brakes moved to the outside.  Initially envisioned to be a track car, this one came out so nice that it has lived a life much tamer than its pedigree would suggest.
