[PHOTO GALLERY] Chromed 1965 AC Cobra spotted in Saudi Arabia

A unique chromed AC Cobra has recently been spotted in Saudi Arabia and the trained eye of a photographer has caught it on camera.

Most of the time when we hear about chromed, golden, matte pink or whatever shades are considered to be “exotic” these days and the news is usually coming from the Middle East, we end up talking about very expensive cars which have been ruined by their owners. But this isn’t the case here, where the chroming of the classic 1965 AC Cobra took out the very best of the roadster. The images in the photo gallery below have been provided by Hosam al Ghandi photography, with the “help” of, and the 1965 AC Cobra has been captured on camera in Saudi Arabia.

Usually when it comes to exotic cars in the Middle East, we are used to hear about Dubai on the background, but this time, we moved to a country where “Sharia” is a way of life, Saudi Arabia, where this unique 1965 AC Cobra has been spotted. What is mostly interesting on this exotic model is that its owner has chosen a shade of chrome which isn’t blinding other drivers, and the matte finish gives it an even more exotic appearance. As a reminder, the AC Cobra, also known as the Shelby Cobra, is a sports car produced during the 1960s, between 1961 and 1967, coming in a two-door roadster body style.
