Video special - Steve Sutcliffe samples the new AC Cobra
26 August 2009

The new AC 'Cobra' Mk6 rewrites the rulebooks, as Steve Sutcliffe discovers in our exclusive video.

But as Sutcliffe discovers, it is also great fun to drive - and drift.

His conclusion: "Were I a rich man, I’d have one of these in the garage like a shot. Alongside the Ferrari F40 and E30 BMW M3. It’s that kind of car."
