    "Q" that is pretty strange.

    Kind of answers a question no one asked.

    At 1st blush I see a little BMW Z8 in it.

    Think I'll cancel my Order.

    Unless Redmt still wants it.

    Gian,

    I liked the lines but would have preferred a less pronounced nose. The color is appealing as well.

    Nomad has struck again ... Like a cobra in the grasses, he lifts his broad flat head and strikes swiftly, without remorse!

    The Ford Cobra Snakehead concept is a stunning proposal for an all-new lightweight sports car which could be developed through another Ford/Shelby collaboration.

    I like the lines but I think his design strays a bit too far from the shape of the coupe ... too much for me to think of it as an update of the coupe design.

    The review notes that it is too muscled in the rear quarters but I kind of like it ...

    I wonder if this Japanese Racing Cobra is running the usual 660cc mill or the totally wicked 720cc powerplant pumping out an impressive 158 horsepower.

    A bit angular but that is more the style these days ...

    Lots of power for those of us metrically challenged:

    Supercharged: 605 horsepower with 472 foot pounds of torque
    Naturally Aspirated: 445 horsepower with 391 foot pounds of torque

    All in a package weighing in at 2403 pounds

    Don't know the donor car here in SA, but this concept/replica is based on a Pontiac Solstice called a Solbra...










    Note the very faint ghost stripe

    Interesting vehicle...must be a real screamer with the V8 addition...

    I like the front end but the rear looks too much like the original Solstice IMHO.

    I checked the pricing page and they no longer offer the body panel conversion to make it look like a cobra.

    Running up one of these sleepers at the stoplight would be interesting.

    Well that is definately different. Does the bottom part of the door open after you swing the top part up?
