The new Shelby Cobra

 

Theres the all-new Mustang GT and the GT supercar. Add one more vehicle and you have what Ford calls the Power Trilogy.

At the last press conference of the day, Ford kept things lively, bringing out those two performance cars with smoke and fireworks flying.

To complete the Power Trilogy, Carroll Shelby arrived onstage in a modern-day version of the legendary Shelby Cobra. As Bill Ford, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Ford Motor Company, told the assembled journalists, Carroll has come home to Ford.
 
From the wide open grille to the bulging fender flares, this Shelby Cobra concept features many styling cues of the original muscle car. The 2-seat roadster has no roof, no side windows, and as Ford Motor Company group vice president of Design J Mays put it, thank God, no cupholders.
 
The Cobra Concept was completed in just five months by the same team that built the GT. And this is not just a show carthe roadster has already been tested at speeds exceeding 100 mph.
 
This car is driven by the rear wheels
 
Under the long hood is a 6.4-liter aluminum V10 engine that pumps out an impressive 605 horsepower and 501 lb-ft of torque. The engine is positioned behind the front wheels, making the short front overhangs possible. This also makes a very balanced vehicle, with 52 percent of the weight in the rear.
 
Weighing just 3,075 lbs, this car has impressive performance figures. Sixty mph is reached in less than four seconds, and the top speed approaches 195 mph.
 
The interior features blue carbon fiber racing seats and a beautiful aluminum dashboard outfitted with toggle switches similar to those found in the Ford GT. There is plenty of legroom as wellmore than in a Crown Victoria!
 
When asked if they would be bringing this car to production, Bill Ford replied well see. However, rumor has it that some form of this Cobra will see production to complete the Power Trilogy.
