Warning: these videos will make you want to sell your house, rob a bank, and sleep in your garage for the next six months. If you're OK with that, proceed.

Magnus Jinstrand is the man you'll have to blame for your newly re-oriented life, as he's the wickedly brilliant Swede behind this supercharged 6.0-liter Mercedes V-12-powered Shelby Cobra.

Yes, a normally-aspirated 7.0-liter American V-8 is generally more than enough power for a Cobra, it's true. But the level of detail, craftsmanship, and sheer refusal to yield to logic make this a fantastically special car.

Check out the first video below, from Superior Media, to see the car in action on the track, and the second, from Superior Imports AB, for some static shots of the exterior.
