This is COPPERHEAD. This is no ordinary Cobra. Built by Vintage Motorsports in North Haven Connecticut; COPPERHEAD is an example of one of the few "named" cars built by VMS. COPPERHEAD was built by VMS to display their capabilities and push the Backdraft Racing RT3 to new levels of styling and performance. In this build process VMS stripped the car down completely and re-built it from the frame and body out. Nearly every component from the factory is upgraded or modified for improvement. COPPERHEAD has been treated to this process and the list of enhancements will show this.
The Backdraft RT3 Roadster is not a kit, it is a hand crafted replica of the infamous British roadster with an American V8 that captured every car lover's heart in 1965. It combines the historic looks of the original with the modern performance underpinnings of a BMW. The result is a stunning recreation that maintains legendary visuals while offering industry leading comfort and safety. Through continuous improvement and refinement the Backdraft Roadster has reached the top of its class for price versus performance and features.Copperhead has been enhanced even further by having been torn down and rebuilt from the ground up by the team at Vintage Motorsports in North Haven Connecticut. The result is a bespoke collector Cobra that invokes power, passion, and performance.
