Ford Cobra Snakehead concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

Andrus Cipriani is known for spitting out some slick concepts via his computer. His latest effort? This new Ford Cobra Snakehead. It's inspired by the original Cobra's big engine/small car philosophy, but it has a hardtop and updated bodywork.

Cipriani doesn't say which Ford lump would be called upon to power this beast, but we think the 5.0 Coyote V8 would do nicely. Of course, this car is entirely theoretical; it's just a design study from Cipriani. But we sure hope Ford's paying attention.

      Damn that's a mean looking car! I hope Ford ends up doing a revamp of the old Cobra in the near future

      Don't get me wrong, it looks pretty awesome... But it's not very up-to-date looking...

      I like the fact that he used a portuguese skate park as scenery, but like anyone who's been there, if the car was up to scale in that picture, it wouldn't be a supercar but a Hummer.

      Its real easy to say whatever car looks like whatever car they obviously took cues from the focus, fiesta, and gt

      Hey, the image is more convincing than George Lucas' butcher job with the TXH 1138 chase scene.

        Except for the fact the person who rendered this has absolutely no relation to Ford. He is an independent designer who has done some really interesting renderings the past few years, some actually being renderings of future cars that look exactly like the car that is unveiled a year or 2 later. My guess is this is GM fanboi under thus name?

        When I first saw the photo, I said Wow! It's just a concept car with the usual exaggerated details, but the Cobra head theme fits nicely! All it needs are fangs on the grille. Haha, just kidding about that part.

          I could, but since when do you have to be a car designer to judge a car on it's look?

          Ah Yes: Those who can, Do. Those who can't are critics.

      Yes, it looks like a videogame car or a cartoon car. Y'all say that like it's a bad thing! This skate's got personality and I would be proud to have it in my garage.
