  • Get up to Speed with STEM - Engineering Careers - Magna 2018

    Get up to Speed @ MagnaGet up to Speed with Engineering and Manufacturing (GUTS), is the premier event in northern England aimed at inspiring the upcoming generation of young engineers and manufacturers who will go on to be vital in the future of innovation and commercial success in Science, Technology, Engineering and Manufacturing.

     

     

    Cobra Sport MD Rachel Abbott joined the discussion panel to debate the state of manufacturing and future skills at the Get up to Speed event alongside Julie Kenny CBE, DL and David Richards CBE.

    It was great to meet the future generation of engineers at the event along with representatives from many of our local suppliers and business contacts.

    On the Cobra Sport stand we had a number of performance exhausts on display showcasing the craftsmanship & attention to detail which go into making a Cobra Exhaust. Alongside the finished exhaust products were a series of videos providing an insight into our advanced manufacturing to prospective engineers and apprentices.

    We were also proud to have Sam Smelt's current AmD with Cobra Exhausts BTCC car on display at Magna which proved to be the main attraction of the automotive display. The car was fresh from the open rounds of the 2018 British Touring Car season at Brands Hatch the previous weekend where Ollie Jackson picked up a best over podium finish in race 2 in the sister Audi S3.

  • Cobra Sport Star in Car S.O.S Episode on National Geographic

    Cobra Sport featured extensively in episode 2 of series 6 of the popular TV show Car S.O.S aired on National Geographic.

    Tim Shaw - Car SOS film at Cobra Sport ExhaustsThe episode featured a behind the scenes look at many of the manufacturing processes which go into creating a Cobra Sport exhaust. Filming took place over a full day capturing many scenes and a choice of story narrative much of which didn't make the final cut.

    The new performance exhaust for the Lancia was custom built directly to the donor vehicle at our Sheffield based workshop. This final exhaust design was based around 2.5" stainless steel pipework and included a rear box and central resonated section.

    The car reveal in the episode took place at a special event held at Whitmore hall in Staffordshire where a request had been put out to the Lancia Delta owners clubs for as many cars as possible to attend the event.
