I'm about 50/50 on it.

My very first reaction was "UGGGHHHHHHH!!"

But, I have to let it sink in for a while.

I hear ya Toby - in addition to the doors, the front end (specifically the valance and cross cut angles vs the curved mouth) and the roll hoops are really bugging me the more I look at it.

That has to be one of the most unfortunate front-ends I've ever seen.

It wouldnt look anything like that if it were to go into production! I saw an interior pic and that was pretty much the only part I liked about it.

I would like it a lot more if it wasn't so fuckin boxy. All the new cars are losing their curves, which is what makes the original cars look so damn good :yotony:

That has got to be one of the ugliest cars Shelby has ever stood beside and I don't care what it's numbers are, it's plain butt ugly.

My first thought was :

"Poor Shelb doesn't even know what he's standing next to in his old age...they're just propping him up there to get attention."

But the man still has most if not all his wits so it's not true...just an unfortunate reaction to his latest creation.

The Lego car about nailed it for me.

Most 'unfortunate' front ends! Perfect choice of words.

I was watching the show Rides last night where they featured it. The original Shelby Cobra being my dad's favorite car of all time, and thinking how he'd be turning in his grave if he saw this thing. Well, turning in his grave if he wasn't burnt into ashes sitting in a vase in my mom's house.

I can tolerate the rest of the car but the front end ruins it.

I like the white letter tires.... Gotta have'em in a Cobra. Actually, I think white letters would look awesome on a Viper. Call me crazy :screwy:

Anyway,

Performance will be awesome.
The side view is nice.
The rear view is not bad.
The front ruins the entire car, so who cares about the rest. A damn shame...

Anyone have info on the design of the v-10. Is it based off of the ford truck v-10 or something completely different?

A cocktail of Audi TT and classic Cobra with the visual appeal of a warm fish milkshake with a pubic hair in it

could be a winner if they gave it the Cobra happy face instead of that revolting flat bottom lip, added nice 5 into 1 fat sidepipes - muscled up the guards more, recessed the door panels like the originals (to make the rear wheel arches look much fatter) and extended the bum with a lot more curve like the originals.... THEN you'd have something everyone would recognize in a heartbeat only it'd look like 21st century retro....

close enough to see what is intended, but so far away I'm still trying to dig the hair out of my teeth from that milkshake.
