The first pic looks like the Ofna sedan,is the next the Cad of the new 721 .If so it looks like the G4s steering system.

Idd does.. pretty weird that the pic has a non-central tank and the cad does?

And is that bumper made specifically like that(downforce?)
I'm amazed!

Thats an Ofna GPX4. Nothing like a Serpent, look at the gears, they look completely different, even the arms are nothing like a Serpent. Anybody can grab a pic from the net from any other car and say "my brothers girlfriend sister neightbor brother friend of a friend cousin mistres says this is a Serpent"

Bottom line, the car in the pic is a GPX4. The one in the CAD, who knows.

This is a good pic from Mike Myers (Starting Grid Magazine) of a Ofna GPX at a US event a few years a go, with an old version of the Picco .12 and the old Jaco Nitro Shoes....... Nice try Choisan!

Thanks for the clarification Paolo. I hate it when guys come on here and start these thread clamoring for the next update to car X instead of concentrating on the car that they currently have. We all know that within three years of the release of the new car, there will be another update/model and should just patiently wait until the company comes up with it and releases it. This way, it cuts down on the speculation and confusion from misinformation.

Looks like the name has been leaked: S725

Look inbetween the right front wheel and right edge of the bumper

There still no final word on the name.

Hence why Paolo addressed it by "7XX".

You can all speculate all you want. Final product may look nothing like the CAD, .

720-09 becomes history or "stock".

in fact, i am excited to wait the new car debut. my speculation is that we will not need to wait too long to see, no matter there is any denial of how its name should be 721 or 7xx.(no offense).but serpent is brave that it doesn't wait x brand to launch its new "similar-to-other" car first. definitely a credit.

by the way, it's good to learn that is a ofna's.
