Peter Filby is renowned for his thoroughly researched and highly detailed books, his most recent works on TVR having gained critical acclaim. His new work is on Cobra replica of the 1980s, and is the most detailed account on the subject ever published – and it unlikely to ever be bettered.
The cars covered in Snakes Alive! represent the best of the breed from the decade when the genre really got a hold on the kit car market – namely the BRA 289, Dax Tojeiro, Ram SC, Brightwheel Viper, Southern Roadcraft SR V8 and Unique Autocraft Python Roadster.
Snakes Alive! is the first book to delve comprehensively into the histories of these amazing cars, all of which are generously and beautifully illustrated. Filby’s writing style make this book a fascinating read – both authoritative and entertaining.
It’s an essential addition to the bookshelf of any Cobra fan. At 392 pages and bound in a hard cover, it’s a weighty book with high production values.
