The dark knight

Vehicle: 1998 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra

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 miles.

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 fun

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.




98 cobra - last live

Vehicle: 1998 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra

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 curves. Pros: 1. The 98 Cobra engine sounds fantastic - almost like a Ferrari 2.looks great 3. good acceleration, handling and braking 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.
