Emerson Motorsports Cobra bodies are light, tremendously strong, handcrafted works of art.  Stronger than steel yet just flexible enough to absorb impact.

Bodies are composed of a composite matrix based around a select grade of vinyl ester.

Emerson fiberglass bodies do not expand or shrink under extreme heat or cold due to the cutting-edge chemical consistency of the resin mixture.

Emerson Motorsports uses a very complex body mold that creates both inner and outer panels all in one shot. The entire shell comes out of the mould absolutely seamless ready for mounting onto the chassis, in one comprehensive piece.

Only 3,400 miles [5,500 km] logged on this beauty.

Body, Chassis,
Suspension, Brakes

  • custom rack & pinion steering system
  • 4-link rear suspension
  • full-floating axles
  • QA1 adjustable coil-over rear shocks
  • adjustable front coil-overs
  • rear (anti-) swaybar
  • chromed upper control arms
  • manual/road racing disc brakes all-around
  • vented 13″ rotors with Coleman ‘Outlaw‘ racing calipers

EMS’s frame and coachwork are engineered into an integrated harmony, whereby impact in one area is transferred and dissipated throughout the rest of chassis. Frontal impacts, for example, are engineered to transfer a large part of the energy into the engine in an upward direction, while transferring more throughout the frame, doors and body.

EMS Cobras utilize a custom-engineered exhaust system that increases power and reducing the external heat of sidepipes to 170°F [77°C]. While this is at the higher reaches of safe as skin burns at 160F… it won’t damage bare skin with momentary contact.

EMS Cobra bodies are light, tremendously strong, handcrafted works of art. Stronger than steel, yet sufficiently resilient to absorb impact. Bodies are composed of a composite matrix, based upon a select grade of vinyl ester. The EMS body does not expand or shrink under extreme heat or cold due to the chemical consistency of the resin mixture.

They are produced from a very complex body mold that creates both inner and outer panels all in one operation. The entire shell comes out of the mold absolutely seamless and ready for mounting on the chassis, in one very strong piece.

The entire frame and body are merged into an integrated harmony, where impact in one area is transferred and dissipated throughout the rest of chassis.

Frontal impacts, for example, are engineered to transfer a large part of the energy into the engine in an upward direction, while transferring more throughout the frame, doors, and body…

Emerson Cobra doors are distinctive and noteworthy. They are lined with a specially folded steel armor plating. These doors, with their rugged handmade hinges anchored to the frame, will absorb a 55 mph [88 km] direct T-boning side impact, without collapsing into the cockpit.
