Shelby Cobra

Few cars can match the Shelby Cobra for its colorful and turbulent history.  Originally of British roots and design, it's been powered by a number of different powerplants including English, BMW, Chrysler, and Ford versions.

I never look at this front end (can't quite call it a grill, could you?), but what I think of a Largemouth Bass. Yet the design has influenced late model vehicles of both the USA and Germany (think Ford and Audi). And it still raises the pulse of sports car lovers whenever one pulls into the parade row or on the track.
