That 780 cubic inch V8 is a custom milled machine from Donovan Engineering with purpose built Weineck Engineering pistons, connecting rods, crankshafts and heads. That slightly absurd air-scoop on the hood is actually vital, without it the engine struggles to suck in enough air when the RPM gauge goes above the 4,500 mark. At 7,000 RPM that magical, Cthulhu appeasing 1100hp figure is achieved allowing drivers who have the plums for it to launch the Weineck Cobra from 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds and 0-186 in 10 seconds.
How does the Weineck Cobra get from 0-187mph in 10 seconds? By using one of the strongest, naturally aspirated engine ever built for a road car. We also know: Power is nothing without control! That’s why the Weineck Cobra 780 cui Limited Edition is being built using a MIG welded, self-supporting tubular frame (diameter = 4′) to absorb very high torsion forces created by the engine. Additionally, its body is deep drawn from carbon composite materials for maximum rigidity. Single wheel suspension including a continuously variable coil spring system (all suspension parts are made of highest quality aluminium and titanium!) in conjunction wîth a specially engineered high-performance brake system (based on Brembo components) wîth internally ventilated, punched brake discs (front and rear axle) controlled by an arm of balance system guarantees an individual set-up suiting individual driver’s preferences resulting in high-precision driving (and braking) quality for highest active￼ safety.
On the front axle, the Weineck Cobra 780 cui Limited Edition is equipped with special Weineck 3-piece 18′ wheels and intermediate tyres of the dimension 255/40 ZR18. On the rear axle, tyres of the size 315/35 ZR18 are fitted. The 4-speed extra high-performance gearbox, driveshafts and rear axle (equipped wîth a 75% limited slip differential) are designed for more than 2,000Nm of torque! The interior of the Weineck Cobra 780 cui Limited Edition will be designed individually to meet any customer’s wishes. Normally, finest British leather is being used for the upholstery of the seats. All colors, piping’s and sewing’s can be individually chosen. The rest of the passenger compartment is finished by using velours carpets. For the dashboard, classic Smith instruments are being used. In case of rain, the car is equipped wîth a soft top to protect both the driver and the interior. If requested, a hardtop is also available.
