    Wrecked cobras.

    Why is it that it's always the cobra that gets wrecked in films? Watched Iron man last nite and the beautiful cob in a line of exotica is the one that got trashed, same in Bad boys and Charlies angels.

    Have the same worry myself, XXX2 cobra dead, Charlie Angels 2 cobra dead, and of course the classic Bad boys cobra dead. So far score = 1 survive 4 dead. What are these film makers thinking, obviously not members.

    It is the Champion in the Gumball rally though!

    Although if you think about it the Ferrari left the garage in the beginning 10 seconds before the Cobra so even though they were racing up until the last second the Cobra already had a 10 second lead.

    Built a Dax once, Long time ago, painted it blue, original huh...?

    The Cobra in Iron Man was a Kirkham. The studio bought 3 cars (without engine) for the shot, but only used 1.
    Apparently, the director want bent metal rather than splintered GRP.
