I bought this Cobra at 43,000 miles
in '98 and have only replaced brakes,
clutch, and alternator. I've added the
basic bolt-ons, and it run low 13s in
the quarter, with a 0-60 at about 5.2.
In 6 years I've only added 38k to the
speedo. I get b/w 17.5-20.4 miles to
the gallon in the city, and 21-26 miles
to the gallon on the highway. I've
upgraded the suspension, exhaust,
induction, and ignition thus far. It's
never left me stranded (except when the
clutch and alternator went out). The
5.0 Liter is very stout, but could have
gotten more power from the factory.
Using synthetics greatly aids in the
performance of the car.
More power and better handling would
have been a nice facory addition.
I love the power of this Cobra. It has
yet to be out run on the 1/4 mile drag
strip in my home town. The different
design on the rear spoiler is neat and
I like the wheels that came on this
year model. The interior was well
ahead of it's time. I love the Mach
460 sound system!!
