Mass Displacement: PistonHeads Drives the Weineck Cobra

What do you get when you stick an Englishman behind the wheel of a berzerker German interpretation of an iconic American adaptation of a British sports car? How do you handle an English country lane in roadster with 12.9 liters of V8 (780 ci) under the hood, a billet crankshaft the size of Martin Short and more torque than the 7th Armored Division? Do they even make wheels (that aren't steel and set atop rails) that can handle nearly 1,300 ft.-lbs of torque? So many questions. PistonHeads' Ian Kuah has some of the answers. [Thanks to CJ for the tip.]
