Some may say that Ford will have to step up its game if it’s going to compete with Chevrolet’s plans for a new Camaro model every six months. To those people we say, if the second generation GT supercar and the varying versions of the Mustang aren’t enough, then check out this proposed model from designer Andrus Ciprian. His all-new lightweight sports car - the Cobra Snakehead - could just be the high-top model needed to win over some votes from the Camaro clan.

It may not look like your typical Ford supercar, but Ciprian’s two-seater concept does carry over some of Ford’s latest design language, albeit taken a bit to the extreme. This new design language is already present in the latest Fiesta and Focus models, so you’ll see a resemblance to their design on the front end of the Cobra Snakehead. Its extreme muscular stance with those huge, bubble wheel arches and kamm tail design inspired by the classic lines of the original GT40s would put even the beefy Mustang to shame. The design is even more aggressive than the proposed GT supercar.

For power, Ciprian envisions a front mounted V8 for the Ford Cobra Snakehead, so naturally we would of the aluminum 5.4 Liter supercharged V8 found in the GT500. This engine produces 550 HP and 510 lb-ft of torque, but is rather close to the hybrid powertrain speculated for the future Ford GT.

Bottomline: We think the Ford Cobra Snakehead looks amazing, but chances of it becoming a new model for Ford are slim to none. However, we would like to see some of its aggressive design carried over to the new Ford GT. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

This new Concept Car might solve their problem. Let’s just wait until they finally say something about this model. Anyway, I’m already quite satisfied on its engine.

The front of this Ford Cobra seems too huge, oh well I think they just suited it on its name smiley anyway, I must say that I’m quite impressed with this one, and it is already looking great on its body paint.

Have you thought that there were no changes made on this one? I noticed some similarities but I guess am wrong. Let’s wait for the actual production and see if this car has an edge to the market.

The aftermarket version of the car is quiet impressive! It seems that the Andrus Ciprian have made a nice job here. I think it would be better if we see this car on production.

Wow! The speed performance of the car is quite impressive. The styling look so sporty and aggressive on its racing stripes. I wonder if it still has a problem on corner?

I know that Ford will conduct a further study on the concepts that was submitted to them. In this case, we are free to criticize and appreciate all designs we’ve seen today.

Face it guys, even if we go through that petition stuff. It would be unlikely that Ford will listen to us on this one. Maybe if someone would be willing enough to finance the prototype.

Well, it would really be better if we put this one up for petition with Ford. Maybe if they see that folks are really clamoring for it, they might have a change of heart.

Let’s not forget that its still a concept car although I think it would have a chance to be in the production for its unique platform! Its seems that Ford got bored on muscle car.

hmm. It seems that Ford is offering a fresher look on their model! I like the huge styling in the bonnet of the car. However, it seems that they are still using the same outdated engine on this car. I hope to see a v12 technology on Ford future production.

Looks gorgeous but everybody is right. Ford is making a big developments on their car designs. Hopefully, it’ll become a hit.

One thing that I really don’t like whenever I see these concept designs is that I know too well that they really won’t make it into production. Just for this once, prove me wrong Ford.

  (401) posted on 06.23.2011

Probably, if we would petition Ford, then they would consider this one. But then again, that one would really be impossible. So we might just as well be contented with this one.

  (528) posted on 06.23.2011

Aw, I thought that this one was actually going to be a probably production vehicle. Well, that was a disappointment, but that won’t stop me from hoping to see this one for real.

  (596) posted on 06.22.2011

Well, that is definitely too bad if this one only stays on paper. Just take a look at the whole thing and you will see that it’s really a winner. Hope the guys at Ford know that too.

Ford finally realizes that coming up with a lots of Mustang versions won’t work to compete with other manufacturer. This new Concept Car might solve their problem. Let’s just wait until they finally say something about this model.

Wow, this one is definitely awesome. This is surely one of the best looking takes on the Cobra that I have seen so far. The front of this one simply screams out a lot.

The second modern Ford I’d be happy to see in my garage. If only they would build it.

The figure performance of this car seems great and I like the fact that it differs from the other production car. Ferrari, Lambo and even Veyron cars are straight line racer and the characteristic of this car makes it unique from the other.

Personally, I don’t think that its appealing. And I like to think that this is just an another concept car that will not have a chance to be in the production.
