But Maltese designers Racer X Design believe this is it – the KC-427.
The firm has released the first sketches of the car, which it says gives the Cobra a ‘brutal new age twist’, whatever that means.
The car will have a 7.0 litre V8 from a Corvette and a power to weight ratio of 550 bhp/ton.
Racer X Design are promising to have a car ready in a year, and twenty KC-427’s will eventually be built.
Reuben Zammit, Director and Head of design of Racer X, said: ‘We will start collecting information on who might be interested in this car.
‘The first twenty people who show interest will be offered the opportunity to purchase the KC once the cars are ready and be updated regularly with the progress.’
