Backdraft Cobra

What is a Backdraft Cobra?

Backdraft Racing Inc was founded in January of 2001 by 2 world champion auto racers, Tony Marten and Reg Dodd. The company has evolved considerably over the past few years to establish itself as the industry leader in producing turn-key replica Cobras.

The AC Cobra, often referred to as the Shelby Cobra in the United States, was a British-American sports car known for its powerful performance, race-derived design, and distinctive styling. It was originally produced in the 1960s by Carroll Shelby’s company and has since become an iconic classic car.

Cobra car replicas are vehicles that are designed and built to closely resemble the iconic AC Cobra. The Backdraft Cobra uses aftermarket parts and components to recreate the look and performance of the original Cobra. The Backdraft Cobra aims to capture the spirit and aesthetics of the original AC Cobra.

While Backdraft Roadsters are not original AC Cobras, they are highly regarded within the replica car community for their quality craft and attention to detail. They provide enthusiasts with an opportunity to own a vehicle that pays homage to the classic Cobra while incorporating modern technology and engineering standards.

Backdraft Cobra Replicas are the leaders in building high quality, authentic Cobra car replicas and custom-built roadster cars and automobiles.
