Still don’t believe that Test Drive: Unlimited will have the most cars in any racing game on the planet? Atari sends us a fact sheet about the AC Cobra’s in the game.

We pull back the covers this week on the ever-popular supercar, AC. We can’t wait to drop you in the driver’s seat of this sleek and powerful machine so you can push it to its limits on Oahu’s 1000 miles of track. This rare and awesome car makes a great addition to the Test Drive Unlimited title – check it out!

AC Cobra 289

Following on from the original Cobra 260, the 289 offered even more power than earlier car. The 289 used a revised 4727cc ( 289 cu") Ford V8 but retained the original steering arrangement and minuscule coachwork. The engine puts out 271 hp at 5750 rpm and has a top speed of 140 mph and a 0 – 60 acceleration of 5.2 seconds.

AC Cobra 427

In 1964 the most powerful AC Cobra entered production, the Cobra 427. The 427 used the 7 litre, big block Ford V8, which developed over 400bhp in standard form and could be tuned to even higher levels for track use. The chassis and suspension were redesigned to enable the car to cope with the huge power increase along with many smaller changes. The engine puts out 480 hp at 6500 rpm and has a top speed of 180 mph and a 0 – 60 mph acceleration of less than four seconds.
