If you are going to travel some of the world’s most scenic routes in Cape Town you may as well do it in style by hiring an AC Cobra for your trip. There is no shortage of panoramic routes around the city which just beg for a low-down, top-down, unforgettable kind of experience.

Cape Town Cobra Hire

This is the place to go to get your muscle-car fix while visiting the Mother City. Cape Town Cobra Hire is dedicated to providing automotive connoisseurs with an all-frills-thrill in the form of a classic AC Cobra to call your own for the day.

This company was established during 1990 by Dean Gillat who worked with Eddie Jordan for several years on the successful F1 Jordan Racing Team. Now Cape Cobra Hire offers us mere mortals the rare chance to experience the joys of driving one of these high performance machines.

Starting out with just one Cobra for hire, the company continues to increase its fleet of these impressive machines. Today you can hire one in almost every colour, each just as gleaming and immaculate as the next. Cape Cobra hire seeks out only top class vehicles to offer its customers and all these cars are in immaculate condition.

Love at first drive

Some of Cape Cobra’s customers have fallen so in love with the styling and performance of this white-knuckle ride car, that they have purchased ‘their’ car from Dean, or asked him to source one on their behalf. Clearly, whizzing through the beautiful Cape Town landscapes with the wind in your hair and built-in-grip handles for this exceptional experience.

Cape Cobra hire will deliver your chosen vehicle to your Cape Town City accommodation or you can pick it up from their premises at 10 Hermes Street in Paarden Eiland. This service is offered 7 days a week, but be sure to arrive at 9h15 am sharp when they open, to get the most out of your day.

After the necessary paperwork, you are on your way, with no CD player, no radio and no air-conditioner – just you, your high performance vehicle and the open road.

Be seen sightseeing

Turn some heads as you head for the beach, see Chapman’s Peak Drive in a whole new light, roar through the scenic winelands, or head up to Langebaan on the West Coast for lunch. There are no restrictions on where you can go in your Cobra, as long as you stay on the tarmac and obey the rules of the road.

When hiring a vehicle of this calibre it is important to treat it with respect. Wheel-spinning, speeding, handbrake turns, drifting, donuts, over revving and aggressive pull aways are just not on.

Apart from sight-seeing around town, you could also hire a cobra for any occasion where you want to impress, like a day at the races, your wedding, a matric farewell or even a first date! These classic vehicles have been used in many fashion and film shoots around Cape Town which is hardly surprising when you consider the sleek nature of the beast!

Make a booking with Cape Town City Accommodation and get to the Mother City for the joy ride of a lifetime.
