The idea of an English car with a big American engine was fairly novel in 1950. That year the British Allard Company launched the K2 model, which was the inspiration for Carroll Shelby's Cobra project. As with the earlier Allards, various American V8 engines were available. A 3.6-liter Ford-Mercury V8 engine with twin Solex carburetors was standard. The K2 stayed in production until 1952, and by then 119 examples had been built.
