It is equipped with a 5.7 V8 engine that generates 300bhp. It has a five-speed manual gearbox attached. There are other possible engine options: Ford 302, Corvette LS engine, Rover V8 carburettor or a Chevy 350 fuel-injected.
Inside are fluted leather bucket seats, cushioned leather trimmed instrument panel and door panels and many other details. It has a discreetly hidden 12v auxiliary output to charge your phone or browser, it is hidden behind the dashboard.
The Cobra chassis has been improved over the 35 years since the MK1 Cobra Replica launched in 1997. The initial design had a ladder frame chassis, but the current one has a much stiffer semi-monocoque.
As a safety enhancement, the Sumo Mk3 has two steel bars running down the entire length of both doors that are connected to the steel uprights on the chassis. In this way the car gains great protection against side impacts. In addition to this and the monocoque chassis itself, the 1.6mm steel floor helps the structural integrity of the vehicle.
The chassis is intelligently designed to create crumple zones. Including the design of the bottom rails. In the event of a frontal collision, the entire front of the car folds up.
