The Cobra was supposed to be a mix of the American V8 drive train in a small British roadster. Together the combination would create a successful racing career. The early version of the Cobras were created to equal out things by taking advantage of Fordâ€™s 260 cubic-inch small block V8 engine. Unfortunately this plan backfired when the 427 cubic-inch FE big block was installed.
The Cobra Venom V8 will undoubtedly be more refined than the visceral glory of the original Shelby vehicles, and while the concept images show a derivative car, it’s still good looking; classic proportions never go out of style.
A supercharged Ford modular V8 spinning out 524 horsepower is the intended power source, squirting the aluminum and carbon fiber coupe around with authority. 0-62 will come up in 3.4 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 214 mph. While the concept renderings look good and the specs sound impressive, we’re not sure whether this vehicle exists beyond its concept renderings.
