Project Daisy blossomed at the Detroit show into a modern Shelby Cobra, complete with the bulging fenders, twin stripes, monster power, and smiling Texan, and it has achieved full bloom here in New York. Carroll Shelby conspired with the concept team to develop this show car, borrowing heavily from the Ford GT production car. For the Cobra, the mid-engine platform was reconfigured for a front-mid-engine application. Inspired by the Cobra 427, the team created a special 6.4-liter V-10 that produces 605 horsepower and 501 lb-ft of torque. In a 3000-pound car sized like a Miata, that power translates to sub-four-second 0-60 mph times. The six-speed transmission is rear mounted to distribute weight and increase interior legroom. The cockpit is all business, with essential gauges, race-inspired seats, and toggle-switch controls, all surrounded by aluminum and carbon fiber materials. Likewise, the clean exterior carries the essential Cobra cues with a modern, machined appearance highlighted with 18-inch front, 19-inch rear wheels. Many are wondering if they will build a production version. The official answer is, " 'We'll see.' If we get the same overwhelming reaction to the Cobra concept as we did to the GT concept, anything is possible," according to J Mays, Group Vice President, Design.
