History.
The original Cobra's story begins in the 1960's with the production of the Ace roadster by specialist Surrey-based British sports car company AC. Wanting to find a competitor for the Chevrolet Corvette, American ex-racing driver Carroll Shelby requested AC modify the Ace to accept a small block V8 engine, and the resulting car was re-named the Cobra. It was an instant success, and soon became a legendary race winner in both Europe and America.

When upgraded with bigger and more powerful engines, the Cobra became a fearsome and truly unbeatable racing car. Along with the mechanical alterations made to enable the original Ace to be fit for racing, the necessary bodywork alterations provided the Cobra with it's now unmistakable muscular appearance.The AC/Shelby Cobra has since become a true classic of the motoring world, as both a roadster and racing car - cementing it's iconic place in history.

This is a beautiful looking car but I would dispute too much spiritual connection to the Cobra. As an owner of a Superformance Cobra the spirit of that car is being in the air - the roadster aspect is unified by the speed and handling. This car while very stylish has a roof!!!

It certainly looks nice. But I agree with Chris that a Cobra should be a roadster.

Yep, it is totally a nice looking car with a fierce face on it similar to a cobra. I would also like to see some pictures of the interior too.
