MacG Racing, the UK's only distributor of the current AC Cobra brand, will be launching the first right-hand-drive MK VI at The Performance Car Show this month.

AC Cars is one of the UK's oldest car manufacturers. It was first established in 1901 when John Weller set up a garage in London. In 1903, wealthy businessman John Portwine joined him and together they developed their 'Autocar' which first appeared at the British Motor Show that year. In 1915, the abbreviation AC was first used and a new company was formed called Autocarriers Limited.

Come January 12th and the latest version will be one of the stars of the Performance Car Show. Richard MacGregor of MacG Racing, said: "The AC Cobra is an iconic model which has remained extremely popular throughout its different versions. The MK VI retains all of the beauty and charm of the original AC Cobras, with a modern update.

"Previously only available in left hand drive, we are thrilled that we can now launch a version better suited to British roads and can't wait to introduce the right hand drive version of this incredible machine at the Performance Car Show in January. Our Racing Team are also excited about our involvement in the development of the GT4 version and being able to race it in due course."

The Performance Car Show in association with and Autocar will be held alongside Autosport International 2017 at the Birmingham NEC on 12-15 January. For more information, visit January 12-13 are dedicated trade-only days.
