    I think it would screw up the lines of the car

    It probably would mess up the overall look to add scoops of any kind. But try something subtle like a Subaru. A single intake. And make sure it has rounded edges.

    Well I was thinking of the cowl hood along the lines of the car as they are but thats a bit wide, perhaps if you could make a nice cuved smooth one it would look good. As for hood scoops, I dont think a WRX one would look that good, perhaps more of a long sleek scoop along the top would look better. Problem is I don't have photoshop...yet, and when I do get it my skills are a bit....lacking. So in the meantime hopefully someone else can make a nice concept.

    The title says "Cow Hood".

    I don't think this is what you meant:



    Here are some cowl hoods:





    Ignore the quality. I didn't spend much time on them

    I hate to be a smarta**, but those aren't cowl hoods. Those are RamAir. :laughbounce: :woot2:

    The cow hood is pretty sweet. :P I too haven't seen it with the top up. Is it a hard top or a soft?

    I'm assuming this it the coupe version. I don't see any body lines for it to fold.

    The coupe IS NOT going to be made.

    The convertible has a soft folding top.
