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!!

Have had his car since new. Mods started within 200 miles, springs, caster camber plates, flowmasters, etc. I've done everything to this car over the years and drive it a bit aggressively (3 speeding tickets). It was purchased to use as weekend driver/car show duty. Everything is chromed, polished, powder coated, painted/waxed and very clean. Old p600 procharger (with inner cooler), 75 shot NOS, DVD, Subs, upgraded stereo, race seats, no rear seats, Lambo doors, carbon fiber hood (same cobra style) interior done with real cobra snakeskin accents carbon fiber, polished billet, etc, etc, too much more to list. Bottom line never really had any problems with it, other than normal.

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.
