DRB developed the trend-setting monocoque method of construction, a method that is now copied by other manufacturers. All DRB body/chassis units come to you with the body fully assembled to the chassis, with doors fitted (with anti-intrusion beams installed), bonnet and boot lid hinged and aligned to solve the problem of home builders working with the very specialised GRP materials. In addition, the high standard of “panel fit” from the factory has assisted home built DRB Cobra replicas win more awards than any other manufacturer.
The fully jig welded chassis has all mounting brackets and bosses included so the body/chassis unit is ready to accept suspension, motor and transmission components when you take delivery.
A very comprehensive Build Manual is supplied with each body/chassis unit, and provides step by step instructions on the build procedure, photos, drawings, part numbers of the ADR (Australian Design Rules) compliant components that are required and templates where necessary.
More DRB Cobra replicas have been completed and registered by home-builders than all the other Manufacturers. All of the specialist parts and accessories are available from the Factory and a back-up service is provided.
DRB designed cars have a reputation for engineering quality and ease of construction being the main objectives. We are always available for advice to home builders, and can provide most of the special components to complete the vehicle. These can be bought progressively to suit the customer’s budget.
Our AC Cobra, GT40, D-Type Jaguar and DRB540 kits are easily the most respected in the industry, and have proved themselves time and time again from ease of registration, to award winning Show & Shines to fantastic race track results.
