With today’s electronic throttles, radar cruise control and lane departure warnings, the Factory Five Mk4 Roadster is a breath of vintage style fresh air for thousands of collectors. They have become the world’s best-selling, best-engineered, and best-performing replicas of all time, and if performance analog driving is on your radar, few vehicles are as much raw fun as a 427 Factory Five Cobra.

There is no better way to honor a legacy than to continue it. The Mk4 Roadster accurately brings the looks of the legendary 427 Cobra into the 21st century while keeping its essence intact. Every advantage of modern technology, parts, and materials are utilized to always improve performance, reliability, and comfort. The marriage of modern CAD-based engineering and vintage design is a winning combination. This Factory Five Mk4 rides on an authentic 4” round-tube frame design, just like the original legend, keeping the proper road manners intact. The Ford Racing 427 fills the bonnet with raw power, and is complete with MSD ignition, power disc brakes, and a five-speed manual transmission. Rubber hits the road through a Ford posi rear end, giving immense torque and immediate response when the pilot steps on the gas. It’s a throaty roar from the side pipes, one which anyone foolish enough to challenge you at a stop light will no doubt remember as the last thing they heard from you. The comfortable cockpit is just like new, with leather buckets, five-point seat belts, and all correct gauges.

This example is beautifully finished in authentic Cobra LeMans Blue with white racing stripes and wears the alloy wheels and distinctive side pipes of the original. It features the correct quick-jack bumpers, LeMans style gas cap, three-point roll bar, bullet racing mirror, and an authentic chrome-on-brass windscreen frame. No roof, no heater, and no stereo make the sound of the big V-8 the only thing you’ll want to pay attention to in this fine Factory Five Cobra.
