Review of the 1997 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Looks great, handles well, very comfortable for a sports car.

  • Cons

    Still gets its butt whipped by the 5.7-liter Camaro and Firebird twins.

  • What's New for 1997

    After last year's significant underhood upgrade, the SVT folks saw no reason to make changes to the Cobra for this year.

The writers of the review for this site are dead wrong!! "gets it's tail whipped by camaro/firebird"? There has not been 1 camaro/firebird or any other gm product that has out ran,outclassed, or even looked better than this car. I resent that statement and hope they live to eat those words. In the famous words of my father" drag that [violative content deleted] up to the line,and we'll see who has the better car"!Wait a min,just thought of something..was going to run a corvette Z06 and he broke before the burnout! hahahahahaha!

I bought my Cobra convertible new and, outside of a fresh paint job, the only expenditures beyond scheduled maintenance have been tires, battery, and spark plug wires. It looks great, sounds great, rides great, makes me feel great. My best all-time automotive investment in which I plan to be buried (close by, at least).




First on race day

This is just an overall great car. I've owned my Pacific Green Cobra since it was new in '97. It's great! Got enough HP to have some fun and yet the fuel economy isn't bad. Great donor car for Shelby kit cars too!

Great mustang, fun to drive, great car fro around town. Car performed well on track. Modifications were made for better tires, shift kit, air intake and cat back exhaust system. Adapts well to basic performance modifications. Engine has much more potential than current GT's
