It's the return of the king and his Cobra. With the debut of the Shelby Cobra concept, Ford completes a power trilogy of sorts, reliving its performance past with the new Mustang, Ford GT and now this homage to the legacy of Carroll Shelby, the aging monarch of speed who's returned home after a several-decades falling out with the Blue Oval boys. Unlike the GT, this Cobra is modern in its design philosophy. But there are cues to past Shelby creations, like the yawning, semi-circular air dam, side vents and all the curvaceous sheet metal needed to cover the 19-inch meats in the rear. Power? Yeah, there's gobs of it thanks to a 6.4-liter, aluminum-block V10 pumping out 605 hp and 501 lb-ft of torque. Developed in just five months by the Ford Advanced Product Creation team, with a healthy dose of input from Shelby, the car has already been in track with none other than ol' Shel himself at the controls doing smoky burnouts. Long live the king.
