AC 427SC 1967

The AC 427. One of the most iconic cars, and in many ways notorious. While possible to tame, it was known as the “Cobra” for a reason, it would bite back. A gentle touch was thus needed to handle this car. Having some 485hp in S/C state, with street legal tire technology meant that wheel-spin was almost always possible. In fact, it wasn’t until 4th (the tallest gear) before you could, with reasonable confidence, apply full throttle.

On account of the engine having incredible torque, some 650Nm of torque from 3500 RPM, the 4-speed seems more than sufficient to accelerate the car from any speed. The S/C also features stickier rear tyres than fronts to keep the car stable, but the professional driver may find mildly understeery mid-corner, of course the right pedal is easily enough to overcome this at-will. The car also has very good stopping power featuring ventilated discs at the front and solid disc rear brakes.

While tricky, this can be one of the most rewarding rides around. In S/C form, this was about the fastest road car of it’s time and has only since been matched by the most exotic supercars beginning in the 90’s.

Yeah, being a big Cobra fan, and lover of rF2, this cobra doesn't make any sense, sorry. Woochoo's carset makes an improvement, but still it's not what I and I guess others want.
I'd love full spec 260, 289, 427 cars, with racing tires, various body styles including visors instead of windshields... Dreams, sweet dreams.
There was a SimHQ mod which converts this Cobra to race-prepped 289 car. And boy, it drives so good. Shame it wasn't and will probably never be updated to dx11.

Wasn't there also competition version of AC Cobra? This one has poor tires and brakes which make it quite difficult to handle (i.e. in Assetto Corsa it's much easier)

The following link suggests so: http://www.bsimracing.com/rfactor-2-ac-427-cobra-released/

"The release features two different versions. One version is fitted with street tires that should be fine for all driving enthusiast and generate a somewhat easier drive.

ISI also provided a competition version, fitted with racing tires. These tires are wider and made out of a softer compound that will give you more grip, and will not exhibit the understeer that is present in the street tires. Furthermore, the competition version also features adjustable springs and dampers."

Are ISI cars and tracks that are now being released under the Studio 397 account all updated to the DX11? The list in the update of 1st of May 2017 does not include this car.

Select the Competition Cobra in the AI opponents doesn't do anything, currently.
