Like the 2002 Ford GT40 concept, the Ford Shelby Cobra draws on Ford's emotional and performance roots in a thoroughly modern interpretation that reinforces the company's product-led momentum. With minimalist interior and exterior elements that emphasize its performance-oriented function, the Cobra Concept's design reinforces a performance mission, . Cues like the massive grille opening, side vents, low-back seats and bulging wheel arches establish an emotional connection with Carroll Shelby's original 1960s Cobras, but no dimensions or proportions are copied in this thoroughly modern two-seater.
As the saying goes, too much power is almost enough. So thought Carroll Shelby when he shoe-horned a 427-cubic-inch Ford V-8 under the hood of a small British roadster, giving birth to the legendary 427 Cobra.
Four decades later, Ford's Advanced Product Creation team - an in-house think-tank cum skunk works - explored the idea of applying Shelby's famous formula to the latest components and architectures Ford has to offer. The result is the Ford Shelby Cobra concept, a radical new roadster, fully engineered for high-speed testing, completed in just five months by a small, tightly focused team of enthusiasts.
