The Iconic Roadster

Last week was the first installment of Modern Art Monday, and we took a look at the taillight of the Jaguar XJ. Today we are looking at an entire vehicle. The Iconic Roadster is a low-volume, high-horsepower monster that takes the style of the classic AC Cobra and turns it into a modern work of fire-breathing art.

Such an exhibitionist…
The Iconic Roadster is powered by a 6.9L all-aluminum V8 engine that spews forth over 800 horses. It is capable of the supercar mark that is 200 mph, and it weighs about 2,400 lbs. It is a hoon-mobile in every sense of the word (that I just made up). Today however, we are not looking at the power-to-weight figures or wondering how well it actually puts that power to the ground. We are looking at this car while it is standing still, because it is a modern work of art. The fabrication quality of the Iconic Roadster is evident in these photos. Everything looks like it is prepped for aircraft-grade equipment use. From the billet aluminum door hinges to the Iconic stamped header gasket, the attention to detail and quality is top-notch.
