This black beauty was completed in 1999… and professionally finished with ultra-premium (Netherlands-based) Sikkens single stage gloss black paint. No slouch—this is a take-no-prisoners drivin’ machine that puts the asp onto the asphalt…
Bill Emerson extolling the attributes of his custom-handcrafted driving machines: “Our team encountered Carroll Shelby many years ago at the Pleasanton car show. We had several Emersons on display, which he inspected very closely. He remarked that we were on the right track. As only one example, by our not attempting to clone his car in all respects, but engineering and designing a refined version of it, he especially noted how easy our car is to get into and out of compared to his original track stars.
Emerson Motorsports road reptiles are individually handcrafted, and customized for the individual who owns the car and how he intends to drive it. With longer suspension travel and longer control arms, the ride of an Emerson Motorsports Cobra replica is supple and occupant friendly compared to that of the original. As you may well know, this could not be achieved with a 90” wheelbase, so the chassis is 4-1/2 inches (±11.4 cm) longer; it wasn’t stretched or widened; rather, the entire car was modestly expanded. This facilitated a host of ergonomic and safety improvements (every Emerson Motorsports Cobra replica is unique, but each incorporates safety features not found in any other Cobra replica)… not to mention inspired handling performance… and has the dimensions to accommodate a wide range of powertrains.” Bill Emerson
