Overview

Rent a classic Backdraft Racing Cobra from the Official Backdraft Racing Rentals/Sales Agency in Cape Town, South Africa. The Cobra is a race car from a bygone era, where racing wasn’t managed by computer chips and technology. Take yourself back to the day when it was about raw power. Feel the engines roar vibrate through your body and exhilirate you when you drive this magnificent car.

The perfect way to enjoy the wonders of Cape Town. Dave and Matt could not have been more friendly and the car was awesome. The highlight of a perfect holiday, you’d be mad to miss out

What an awesome car to drive. The sound is just amazing. It feels like James Bond driving in a movie along the coast. Leather jacket is a must and off you go! I could drive this car for days. Thanks for this great experience.
