Snake bite!

The Robnell’s creator Rob Darnell has done a great job of turning the original ’60s concept into a more civilised, modern day, high-performance sportscar suited as much to daily commuting as week-end racing. He’s upgraded most of the componentry and added some modern features to satisfy today’s more demanding customers whilst retaining the original’s styling and brutal performance – all at a price much less than you’d pay for the real thing. – Chris Fincham @ motoring.com.au


This example has been built having no expense spared (over $240,000 in build) with maximum speed, driving enjoyment and comfort in mind. From Koni Adjustable suspension through to tan leather appointment by Blackman & Son. The car demands your attention – standing still or ripping up road.
