Guess this would fall under performance...has anyone ever seen this car?

this is a 900hp cobra kit car I went for a spin in during the summer...the car is custom made...twin turbo...water injection cooled(er sumthin) the rims are 17" cut in half and welded together (basically 1.5 of a rim) this car has a hydraulic jack hwere he hits a button and it lifts the car in the air. oh yeah and it apparently is one of the only cobras...with air conditioning















if you look in the interior shot, notice where the cd player is...kinda stuffy in there...as well you can't see the turbos as they are packed inside the side of the engine...all custom designed by one person....the same guy is also doing a custom turbo build up on the owner of Paradigm Speakers GMC Typhoon

I like CObra's as well. But i always hated how the shifter sat since the drivetrain sits so far back in the car.Alas, The only kit cars worth building are Cobra's and GT40's. If done right they are almost unbeatable.

Shelby wants WAAAY too much money for his genuine replica's. Not to mention he's an *******. I love Cobra kit car's because they **** him off royally.

I don't know if I would trust 900 HP being sent to the gound through wheels that have been chopped in half and welded back together.

just found out that the first baseline dyno test was done on this car...de tuned it hit 400tq at the wheels at 1800rpm...and 780whp at 5000 rpm...with a collapsed fuel line and very poor injectors...he has to upgrade the injectors to put out more hp...as well as the fuel pump which he made himself...
