I am just shocked! Today my friend, who's mom drives a `1999 SVT Cobra(320HP), told me to come on over because he had the car for a couple hours. I was like DAMN, and got over their ASAP. All I can say is...the thing is UNBELIEVEABLE! FAST AS HELL! Seriously, shifting out of second gear, going at least 65, it's crazy. It pushes you back in the seat so hard, all you can do is just look forward and think, DAMN! I was just amazed. Then, he goes "you know a clutch...take her for a spin." I am like OMG, are you serious? So yea, we switch sides, I hop in and DAMN, what a car... You barely tap the gas and it GOES(REALLY goes.) I makes my ZX3 look like, well, let's not even go there...
My car handles better, but wow... I was just amazed. It was such a thrill to drive a car with that much power. Anyone need something besides porn to get off...hop in one of these.
Amazing!

Cool! ...accept there were no standard SVT Cobras produced in 2000.


They are indeed fun... I autocross one every couple of months. It is fun to blast from one corner to the next.. excellent brakes too.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I was also similarly impressed when i drove the cobra too. Feels a lot like an Z28 camaro. If I lived somewhere that didn't have snow i'd probably drive one of those real cars....

OK, lol SORRY guys, he told me it was a 2000 and I don't follow Cobras for ****. So, I am guessing it was a 1999.

Get a lil' turbo for your Focus. It doesn't take nearly as much power to feel the same acceleration.
Only big thing you'll notice lacking is below about 3100rpm the Focus will feel sluggish whereas the Cobra is more 'snappy' and can push you back harder even at a lowly 2K rpm. Cobra sounds so much cooler though hehe!

A very few Cobra's were made in 2000, except that the car was recalled due to missing the stated hp rating of 320 by coming in about 20-30 hp short. So they (Ford) started to replace, for example, the exhaust systems and the intake systems on vehicles already sold but decided to suspend further production since they could not meet either current or future customers needs.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Actually the problem was with the 99's; no 2Ks--except the "R's" were made because of the resources needed to recall and repair the 99's...

the 03 cobra is fun to drive with the stock tires because it stays so straight with the tires spinnin like mad. It is even more fun with sticky tires because you actually hook and that is just as fun as going down the street sideways.
A friends mom just bought a new automatic corvette (non ZO6) and that thing is awesome. I would rather have the corvette than the mustang just because of all the bells and whistles, the looks and power everything don't hurt, either.
