i really like shelby's new GR-1. obviously it just screams cobra daytona coupe with some GT-40 mixed in. i think the styling blend of two great cars with killer lines is awesome. but it also reminds me of some other speed demons. so i have included a pic of an old fighter jet that the airforce used to fly back in the late 50's and early 60's. in my opinion if the GR-1 had wings it would look like the F-100 super sabre (see pic below) :flag:

the car as depicted is utilizing the 6.4 litre V-10 concept motor that was used in the slab sided cobra that they unveiled last year. i think they should make the motor look as similar as possible to the falconer V-12 that is used in thundermustangs 3/4 scale replica P-51 mustangs (see pic below). obviously they will have to chop 2 cylinders off this V-12 motor to get it to fit and make the block and heads out of aluminum to save weight. this is one the sexiest engines i have ever seen. this engine would look just right in shelby's new car :bowdown:

thanx 4 the link mike :thumb: they say that peak horsepower for that V-10 engine is made at 6,750 rpm's and that the redline is 7,500 rpm's :bowdown: that is perfect for road racing. the downside is that they say the weight of the car is 3,900 lbs. damn that blows. she sure doesn't look that heavy. they need to put that porker on a diet. that 100 inch wheelbase probably has somethng to do with that. the rear tires are size 345 wide on a 19 inch tall rim /images/graemlins/dude3

What are you talking about...the car is sooo fugly. It looks like ford is running out of ideas so they morphed a gt-40 and cobra togeather. When will they come out with a GREAT sports car. Not some remake of something that WAS good.
