This outstanding Hawk 2.6 was professionally built in 2007. Since collection on 7th June 2007 the AC Ace replica has had just one owner and has covered 10,000 miles. The Hawk has had several European trips including Classic LeMans and is a sensational car to look at and drive. The Hawk offers a blend of modern mechanicals and authentic styling based around the AC Ace which was a car that undoubtedly marked the beginning of the evolution of the Cobra.
According to research there is only one UK ACE replica which is manufactured by Hawk. The Hawk ACE shares the same twin rail, 3.5 inch diameter round tube chassis as the Hawk 289. There are several engine options available and this particular car has a 2.5 litre straight six fuel injection BMW engine with custom made exhaust manifold and system, BMW ECU, Hawk wiring loom and 5 speed manual BMW gearbox. The front suspension has double wishbones with Dampertech coilovers and the rear suspension has Hawk competition leaf springs with Spax dampers. The brakes are excellent with Hawk front discs and four pot callipers, rear MGB drums. The Hawk 2.6 has an MGB live axle and 15 inch wire wheels with spinners and 185 Avon tyres. The car is beautifully painted in Aston Martin California Sage and the interior is fabulous with low back classic bucket seats trimmed in Porsche green leather, Porsche green carpeting, modified transmission tunnel, Hawk dashboard and door cards covered in black leather.
This superb car comes with a complete hood and frame, half and full size tonneau, spare wheel and unused spare tyre, battery isolator switch, two sets of ignition keys, T key for bonnet, fire extinguisher and maintenance record and magazine article featuring build detail and road testing. The Hawk has arrived with us displaying current road tax and MOT until November 2012 but the car will be supplied by us with a full 12 months MOT and service as required.
This is a fantastic recreation that has been built to the very highest of standards. The car is an absolute delight to drive offering excellent performance and handling with a wonderful exhaust note.
