No kidding; the next Viper will probably seem boring and silly compared to this thing.

I think it looks like an Aston Martin and a 458 had an affair. Then a Cobra and a TVR Sagaris had an affair.

Then those two love children got together to make the 378.

It's like the result you would read about in a car porn magazine, "Dear Pentgarage...."

I truly love how this car looks. It is supercar childish with out being running shoe tacky.

I heard Carroll Shelby is suing because it was originally his idea to put a V8 into an AC so naturally this is infringing on his ability to sell any more 1965 Cobras he may realize he forgot in a warehouse somewhere.

Seriously though, that car is nice!

Shelby sues everyone, he has taken his own name from being one of the greatest performance car/race car builders of all time and turned it into one of just a hateful old man with too much money and time.

It makes me really sad to see it too.

Now that I think about it, maybe the Fords should sue Shelby for installing a V8 where a 4 cylinder used to be. Since they came up with that idea.

Semi thread jack, sorry:

The HB Coupe

I just got a mag with a short story about this Dutch car. In the same vein and the Zagato but based on a BMW 1 Series.

Is it just me or does it look like a last-model Jag XKR banged an Elise?
