…The Cobra GT-R looks mean?

Cobra GT-R

The Cobra GT-R from Germany is a little light on the details (right now I think it’s just a paint job and some new wheels) but I love the way this car looks in matte black, so I’m bringing it to you anyways.

Reprogrammed engine electronics, increased boost pressure, modified air intake with sport air filter, and a free-flow stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system brings the power up to 550 hp, with a 620 hp Race Performance version in the works as well.

Three-piece, 21-inch wells fill the arches, and eight-piston brake calipers squeeze 16-inch rotors, and a coil-over suspension handles the handling.

Sure, it’s all the basics with nothing fancy, but when you’re working with a car that’s as potent as the Nissan GT-R, there’s not much that’s needed to go from good to great.

…The Zenvo ST1 is one fast ride?

Zenvo ST1

It may look like the combination of a VW GTI grill, Maserati Corse hood, Lamborghini Murcielago side scoops, Lexus IS-F gill slits, Ferrari F599 quarter windows and F430 side mirrors, Nissan 370Z roof and GT-R taillights, but when you’ve got 1,104 horses of turbocharged AND supercharged power under the hood, no one’s really going to see anything but a blurry view of the rear bumper.

Called The Zenvo ST1, this Danish supercar has been in the works since 2004, but is just now going through its final stages of testing and is expected to see the light of day (all 15 of them) some time in early 2009.

Zenvo ST1 Detail

Specs include the twin-charged 7.0-liter V8, six-speed manual gearbox, rear-wheel-drive, and plenty of carbon fiber to keep the weight down, and stats come in at 3.2 to 62 mph, 120 mph in under nine seconds, and a top speed of 233 mph.

No pricing information is currently available, but if you have to ask…
