First images of new Cobra Venom ?!

27 06 2008

The Cobra, may say so, is small British roadster with American powered engine V8. Early Cobras sought balance by utilizing Ford’s modest 260 cubic-inch small block V8, but all Hell broke loose when a hairy-chested 427 cubic inch FE big block was installed. As a piece of history, and an exciting way to tickle your adrenal gland, the Cobra is legendary. The perennial practice of plucking a significant car from the 1960s and rehashing it, rather than coming up with something entirely new, has struck again, and now it looks like a new spin on the Cobra might be coming. 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. If it ever does see the light of day, we’ll be sure to climb in, fasten the harness and put on our helmet before complaining that it’s really time to move on from the 60s. Then we’ll attempt to tear up some track, Shelby style.
