427SC Cobra replica finished in traditional British Racing Green, completed in 2003 by Cobra Fibercraft, a small (and highly respected) custom shop in Chatsworth, New Jersey. It has logged 5,250 miles [8,450 km], and is in excellent condition throughout.
There are sports car buffs who will tell you that green may be the colour that Ireland claims as ’er own, but good ol’ British Racing Green is an emerald hue that British sports cars can similarly claim title to. And BRG burnished with a hint of metallic, as you see on this custom road rocket, subtly edges up the timeless eye appeal of BRG.

below: The Drivin’ Machine that
put the asp onto the asphalt)
This British Racing Green drivin’ machine imparts a crisp, classic sports car persona. Inspired by a chance encounter with a BRG 1959 AC Bristol, the builder has given a subtle nod to the drivin’ machine that started it all.
Elegant coachwork, exhilarating acceleration and nimble handling, in concert with exhaust melody evidencing raw power, this is a head-turning/crowd-pleasing beauty.
