The classic AC cobra, aka Shelby Cobra has captured the imagination of many for decades. Ford itself attempted to resurrect the Cobra with a concept in 2004 featuring a 6.4-liter V10 thumping out 605 horsepower, but it never came into fruition production-wise.

Industrial design student Daniel Couttolenc shows off his version of the Shelby Cobra for the 21st century.

"The project objective is to design a new Shelby Cobra. One that remains true to its racing DNA," says Couttolenc. "Designed for the current racing enthusiast. The design needs to merge cohesively both; the original Shelby Cobra design cues and Ford´s current design language."
