2004 Ford Shelby Cobra Concept

Ford engineers created a new aluminum-block V-10 to power the Ford Shelby Cobra concept. 
This 6.4-liter engine delivers 605 horsepower and 501 foot-pounds of torque - 
without the aid of supercharging or turbocharging.
The rear-mounted six-speed transaxle is identical 
to the high-performance unit in the Ford GT. 
The concept car has a theoretical top speed of more than 260 mph, 
electronically limited to 100 mph. 
It weighs slightly more than 3,000 pounds and is about as long as a Mazda Miata. 
There's no roof, no side glass, not even a radio, 
a "massive motor in a tiny, lightweight car." said Carroll Shelby.
