To compliment an original chassis you need to follow the same rules when it comes to the suspension. It had to be period correct, or as close as possible. The original slab side had a transverse leaf spring style suspension which requires different length springs to change camber settings we decided to use heim joints which were used on some of the original competition cars.

Another change with regards to safety was to add an additional pick-up point to the chassis to increase the shear strength of the bolt passing through the lower control arm rose joint or poly-bushed rod end. The original springs were made of thinner steel than that available today. In an effort to keep compression rate the same, this car comes with one blade less and “free camber” was changed to keep the ride heights equal from front to rear. This insistence on authenticity means that owners of a Superformance MKII Roadster will have virtually the same driving experience as the original.

The Chassis is the original John Tojero designed 3” tubular rail ladder with cross-member. This chassis is reproduced using drawings obtained from AC cars and also implements the necessary changes to utilize rack and pinion steering . The 3” tubes are tig and mig welded to guarantee a safer and stronger chassis. This is much stronger than the arc and gas welded originals. Pain staking efforts were made to reproduce the chassis as close to an original as possible while incorporating a few modern improvements, like inserting a 3" square tube through the main rails to prevent flexing. Building the cars with a meticulous eye on authenticity took time, but this resulted in a superior driving experience.


An Original would have probably been a 289 with a B.W T10. Today, the recommendation would be a 289/302 based engine with a more modern Tremec TKO or similar transmission.

The Superformance MKII roadster bodywork replicates the later of the 289`s which incorporated modifications to fender flares that will accommodate the slightly wider tires fitted onto chrome wire wheels. One of the improvements made by Hi tech was that the footwells were tweaked so that the taller North Americans can now sit comfortably.

It is very rare that I would take the time to write a review, but in this case I am compelled overwhelmingly to share my experience of purchasing my Superformance FIA Cobra.


After decades of contemplating building a replica Cobra, I decided to instead purchase a Superformance Cobra. The main reason is, I felt that to obtain the high quality fit and finish of the Superformance, I would be spending very close to the same dollars to get the same quality and I would have to do the work of assembling the car, wiring, sourcing parts and building the engine.


As luck would have it, there were several NEW Superformance FIA Cobras on the market in the fall of 2020. After contacting several dealers, I booked a trip to South Carolina with my 12 year old son to visit Downforce Motorsports. Probably the main reason, I decided on Downforce was because the Owner, Dan Long, had questioned me on the purpose for the car. Ie was it going to a street car or what? My answer to Dan was the car will be MOSTLY track and some street. Dan then reviewed with me the options he felt were appropriate for a track car vs a street car AND WHY. The knowledge Dan communicated to me on the differences between a street car vs track car made my decision to work the Dan easy. He gets it. He understands, there are big differences.


While meeting with Dan and his wife Anna in South Carolina, it was clear my son and I were dealing with truly wonderful, knowledgeable people. During that meeting in Dec 2020 we bought the car, and that was just the start of the continued customer service. Dan had arranged for me to meet with Prestige Motors for the engine build and Olthoff Racing for engine install and suspension set up. By April of 2021, I was testing the car at Virginia International Raceway with my son cheering me on. After spending a few months getting used to the power/weight ratio, we changed the alignment for aggressive track use. I have competed in 3 events that included autocross and roadcoarses in 2022 and have won my class at each event. Dan Long has kept in touch during my Cobra adventures and is always helpful when I need advice or resources.


If anyone is interested in purchasing a Cobra, Daytona Coupe, or GT40, I would highly recommend contacting Downforce Motorsports about Superformance.

I've been dealing with Dan for the past 2+ years.  I immediately fell in love with his passion for Superformance cars and cars in general, and his ability to think outside of the box with his builds.  I've purchased 6 cars from Dan to date, both used and new and have 3 more cars on order.  I love having a conversation with Dan and the excitement about the future build and I can always rely on him to have great input on color combos, what engine to use, etc.  He actually listens to what I'm trying to accomplish with a build, somehow completely understands and feels that vision alongside me, and then makes suggestions that I would have never thought of that end up making the car something I could have only dreamed of.  Its the small details that matter, and the ownership experience of the Superformance brand is nothing short of amazing, and Dan truly helps bring the experience to the next level!  I currently own a Grigio Silverstone GT40 Mki and a 1st gen Daytona Coupe in Guardsman Blue and White, and also have a Cobra MkiiiR, a GT40 mkii and Daytona Coupe on order.  I'm very thankful for Dan and his knowledge and have enjoyed becoming friends over the years as well!
