Wham, bam, thank you mam

Limited to 15 cars worldwide, the "Weineck Cobra 780 cui Limited Edition" is a completely legal roadcar. The project was born at the German company "Weineck Engineering", and is immediatley recognisable by the enormous airscoop on the bonnet. It's necessary to pump enough air into the huge 12.9 litre (!), or 780 cubic inch engine. Press the gaspedal to prepare for launch, and more than half a litre of gasoline flows through the carburator.

The engine reaches 1100 bhp @ 7000rpm, and a torque of 1760 Nm @ 5600rpm. The figures are amazing: a specific power of 0.9 kg/ bhp, 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in only 4.9 seconds, and onto 300 km/h (186 mph) in exactly 10 seconds.
All this power is transferred to the rear axle using a manual 4-speed transmission.
The car stands on 18" 255mm/40mm tires in the front, and 18" 315mm/35mm tires in the back.

Weineck 780Ci
0-200 km/h in 4.9 sec
0-300 km/h in 10 seconds
1200Hp, 1760Nm, 1080kg.

What a stupid looking kit car. I'm intrigued by the engine.

Not sure about the overall look, but those performance figures are amazing.

DAMN! That is a sweet looking cobra, with performance to match. My auto teacher drives one of those cobras, not the Weineck one of course, but the Factory Five Racing one that you build. In fact, we're in the process of putting together another one as a class.

Yeah I would be interested in eventually building one for myself too. The one my teacher has was built last year, it has the engine out of a 98 mustang cobra, and it just sounds insane. When you rev it, its just about better than any music.

Theres also a dude that drives one around my neighborhood. I used to see him a few times a week when it was warmer out. His if black with white stripes, and you hear that thing before you see it

Personally I've always liked the look of those cars, and I've only seen a few 'kit car' ones around here (never a real one). I actually like the factory five Daytona kit car alittle more. They also have this new(er) kit out: http://factoryfive.com/table/ffrkits/GTM/GTMkit.html
