    Now... I'm not sure if I like this or not, looks great from the elevated view, but the from the other images (especially) the one with Shelby sat on the fender, makes it look like a Jag. :eek: :p

    It does however come with a 6.4L V10, and if that isn't good for ATLEAST 600bhp, then someone needs to fall on their sword! :eek: :D

    Thoughts?

    That does look like a Jag. Is this the same Shelby that was showcased at the 2004 auto show? It looks different than that one, and I'm too lazy to find the pics from the 2004 show. ;)

    I'm a sucker for the classic Shelby though, it's gotta be a convertible or it's just not a Shelby. :D

    I don't think so... the other Shelby was a roadster, abit like the original AC Cobra, this one seems to be more like a GT/Muscle car, more along the lines of the Shelby Mustang.

    Definitely has a heavy Jag influence, the front looks like a relatively recent Jag concept car, and that tail is heavily influenced from a 50's/60's Jag racer that I can't remember the name of. :confused:

    Yeah, I know what you're talking about, but I can't remember the name either. :cool:

    I found a pic of the roadster, this is more to my liking!

    I like the look of it. There are a few minor appearance things i would change, but its a nice looking car. If you were driving it, though, it might feel like you were sitting way too far back.

    If I were driving it, I would be having too much fun with the gas peddle to realize I was sitting too far back!

    :D

    Yeah, I definately like the look of the coupe, but if I had to choose (riiiiight..) then I'd have to go for the roadster.

    It's like my dad always says: "Room for your @ss and a gallon of gas!"

    Anyone remember the jag F-Type concept from a few years back? It looks like they took the cockpit (plus roof) and rear of that, and made some weird combo of an Aston-Martin/Ford GT front, and slapped them together.

    evilgEEk: What about the Dayton Coupe then? ;)

    Looks like a cross between the Daytona coupe and the GT-40 -- sort of grafting the GT-40 cockpit/doors and front bumper onto the Daytona Coupe.

    A little too modernized in the quest for a remake like the new Cobra.

    If you ripped the Ford emblem off the front, the cool factor increases 10-fold. :cool:

    Well... it's missing the little spoiler on the back for it to remind me of a Daytona Coupe.

    Abstract: and the reliability by 15 :D
