By now you will have realised that Cape Cobra Hire aims to give their customers what they want,
Good Cars, Good Service, At An Affordable Price! Our history:
Cape Cobra Hire is now in its 10th successful season. It was started by Dean Gillatt with his love for classic car who moved to Cape Town in 1990 having spent several years working in motor racing with Eddie Jordan and the Jordan Racing Team.
He realised that while Cape Town already offered many exciting pastimes, it lacked one thing – the adrenalin rush of driving a Classic high powered motor car along the winding and scenic roads of the Peninsula at an affordable price.
And so, Cape Cobra Hire was born with its first gleaming Cobra ready to hire. Several cars later we are continually looking to add to the fleet, but it is imperative that any Cobras we acquire have been made to the same high specification and finish that we always demand.
You can be assured that any Cobra you hire will be presented to you as though it was your own newly acquired prize possession…
In fact, several hirers have fallen in love with the cars so much that they have either bought one directly from us or asked us to source a Cobra privately for them to buy.

Of course, if you are going bare yourself to the world you should do it in style. And if you literally want to blow your hair back the Cape Cobra has to be one of the most thrilling topless cars around. The leather seats, the flawless shiny paintwork, the two distinctive racing stripes down the middle… Make it in pink and add an auto-lipstick fandangle in the dashboard and you’d have Penelope Pitstop whimpering with longing. And it’s not just easy on the eye. It also handles like a kitten with an unfeasibly throaty roar and a tad more oomph in its 5.7l engine than the standard hire car. It’s no surprise that the Cobra is rumoured to be the reason that the UK introduced speed limits back in the 1960s.
