2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

You must drive one to experience it.
The car has outstanding potential for
increasing performance, but even stock
it's a rush. I currently have just
under 3000 miles on it and it is still
breaking in.


Best Features

Engine. Engine. Engine. Engine.


Worst Features

None, leave it to each Stang nut to do his/her own thing. That's what makes Mustangs great.

2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

This machine will blow the doors off of
just about anything on the road, short
of a Ferrarri. With very minor
modifications, the robust cast iron V8
block will take a significant amount of
more boost. A smaller pulley, free
flowing cat back exhaust system, and
new air filter will have this pony up
around 500 HP. My only complaints are
the shoddy trim quality and dated
design of the interior, and
the "blender-like" whine of the
supercharger. Overall, a very fun
vehicle to drive
and it's certainly a head turner. Ford
has grossly under stated it's
horsepower at 390 HP, which is actually
near 430 HP.


Best Features

The 112 cu. in. Eaton roots type supercharger, adding 110+ HP to the naturally aspirated 4.6L 4V predecessor.


Worst Features

New interior design and more careful attention to interior trim fit and finish.

2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

Ok, for car of reasonable price I
cannot believe it got such a low
rating. I've driven almost all the
other cars on the "top ten" list
including the Audi TT, S2000, Miata,
Boxter and the M3 and I own a 2003 SVT
Cobra. If you're basing your rate on
the 2001 SVT Cobra that might be why
it's low. There is a 70 horsepower
difference and a different tranny. I
got my Cobra up to 173 MPH and it was
smooth. It takes corners like nothing
and the audio system rocks! I added two
subs but stock is great! It has awesome
resposive acceleration, handling, and a
bunch of power. More horses then any of
the other car on the list.


Best Features

I enjoy the Supercharged 390-Horsepower V-8 for the ride. The audio system is incredible. 6-in-dash-CD player with 8 bumpin' speakers.


Worst Features

I would like leather seating such as in the Vette. And maybe a more beastly sounding exhaust.
