1996 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Coupe 2dr Coupe


Review

Wow...what a bang for the buck..high performance without breaking the bank. I love the ride, the sounds and the acceleration...what a car. Great toy but not made to be driven in bad weather, rain or snow.


Favorite Features

305 hp..what else do you need to say..stock it runs the 1/4 miles in under 14 seconds..tons of after market stuff is made for this car.


Suggested Improvements

Rides stiff.pre independent suspension compared to the newer cobras. Still a great ride...no regrets...:)

1996 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Coupe 2dr Coupe


Review

An excellent performer, especially in a straight line, with good amenities and a sporting (harsh ride) attitude.


Favorite Features

The high-revving rocket engine just keeps going! The style is simply classic.


Suggested Improvements

T-45 transmission is the weak link, and ride borders on too harsh, especially without independent rear suspension.

Review

this car is great, with 305 horses at tap there is never a power shortage, the steeroing is precise and the brakes are great. The car consistantly runs high 13's at the strip (stock) and has enough power to brake the rear end loose or devastate an import any day of the week.


Favorite Features

I love the feel, comfort, and holding capability of the leather seats, and of course I love the power.


Suggested Improvements

a better shifter, the factory one tends to grind when power shifting from 1st to 2nd or 2nd to 3rd gear.
