My 1998 SVT Mustang Cobra is an absolute "time machine". When I slide in behind the FR500 steering wheel and fire up that SVT motor the sound just is incredible, like no other. Suddenly I am eighteen again, not sixty. A Cobra has a very unique exhaust tone. Put the convertible top down and it is even sweeter. My SVT Cobra has been modified, balanced and blue printed with select aftermarket and FRPP parts that churn out six hundred horsepower. My Cobra is #2931 of 3480 made that year and I have all the documentation, including the original window sticker, owners manual, etc. My wife, children and grandkids love this Cobra about as much as I do. Love my Dark Knight!!

The engine and exhaust system are
wonderful. The interior is rather
cheaply built and some plastic pieces
have broken. The only problems I see
is that the clutch needed to be
replaced at 50,000 miles and I had to
replace tires 3 times with only 67000

The engine and ehxaust note in the car
are awesome, especailly in the
convertible form. The top is very
nice. Its also a great looking car, I
have the rare 98 only Altantic blue.
it also handles and brakes very well,
13 inch front rotors with ABS. And it
still rides well also, controls are
nicely laid out. gets decent gas
mileage, at least on the freeway(25
mpg). But interior materials are kind
of cheap. The 2005 Mustang should
have a much better and higher quality
interior. Engine is awesome and
handmade, makes great horsepower and
loves to rev and very smooth, but
torque comes on high at 4800rpm.

Great car, some what of a sleeper. It
looks like the majority of the Mustang
out and about, but has great
performance. The cops don't give it
second look. The only problem is all
the hondas and VW that don't know what
it has. They always try to race at stop
lights. But, only once.

I have been pretty happy with 98 Cobra
convertible and have owned it for
almost 5 years. The 98 model looks
great and has been
relatively "bulletproof". The 98 model
handles very well for a live-rear-axle
car, although it is no BMW M3 in the
1. The 98 Cobra engine sounds
fantastic - almost like a Ferrari
3. good acceleration, handling and
4. reliability is excellent compared to
most hi-perf cars
5. Works as both a performance car and
a daily driver
6. Mach 460 is a really good OEM
stereo - you won't need to upgrade.
7. In summary, an excellent balance of
performance, driveability, and low cost.
