Les Hayden began manufacturing evocations of the famous AC Cobra 427 in South Africa, having obtained a certified status for his company from the South African Department of Transport. Hayden's design was based around a super-rigid backbone chassis and incorporated anti-dive and anti-squat characteristics to its suspension.

Factory-built to the order of its first owner in 2004 and UK road registered the following year. Finished in Daytona Blue with Black leather upholstery, the two-seater is powered by a 5.7 litre Chevrolet V8 coupled to an automatic Super B&M quick shift gearbox. Constructed on a spaceframe chassis, the Hayden has fully independent suspension with Jaguar running gear. This particular example had covered just 1,800 miles from new when purchased by the current registered keeper in 2014. Offered from the deceased estate of said keeper, the Cobra Evocation has today only covered approximately 2,500 miles across both owners. Unused for approximately a year since the vendors passing, the Hayden will now require some recommissioning before road use. Accompanied by a large history file that comprises correspondence relating to the build, shipping and registration of the Cobra along with build images and the technical specification. The history file also contains a selection of past MOTs and invoices and a current V5C.
