New Cobra Venom Concept Video Hits the Web

After first storming almost every car blog out there last summer with the wicked styled Cobra Venom Concept, freelance designer Jamie Martin returns with a movie about his most famous 3d creation.

For those of you not up to date with vehicle(s) his work is recreating, or the project itself, here's some quick info: the original was called the AC Cobra, it was built in the sixties and is probably one of the most legendary Europe/USA automotive marriages of sheer style, power and kart-like handling.

The versions which managed to get engraved on most car buffs' “likeness glands” were powered by a 427 cubic inches (7 liters) big block V8 straight out of Ford's parts bin. On a small British roadster's chassis this pretty much meant that the model was the epitome of “tail happy motoring” when used improperly.

Jamie's 3d rendering is somewhat of a reborn Cobra concept using a modern package. Its speculative technical data is entirely made-up and the following specs are entirely in Jamie's mind. In the engine bay sits a modern(ish) 4.6-litre supercharged Ford V8 from the current Mustang GT500, which gives the car a potential 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of around 214 mph (344 km/h).

The fantasy features list of the Cobra Venom includes all the modern car amenities, such as xenon HID headlights, front and side airbags, ABS and traction control. Of course, these somehow dilute a few adrenalin inducing reasons from the original concept but hey, it's the 2000s and everybody's scared of anything with four wheels and moving.

We'll leave you now with Jamie Martin's Cobra Venom Concept video:
