Cobra Experience was founded in early 2017 by David Ash with a dream to let the public and tourists alike experience the exhilarating feeling of driving a reimagined 60’s supercar on the breath-taking roads the Cape has to offer. David has shaped Cobra Experience to be a well-established business rooted in the tourism industry.
