THIS IS A PRIVATE PARTY SALEThe actual mileage is $132KVEHICLE DETAILS:- VIDEO WALK AROUND https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKS5C-z1L3k it charges to its 6500-rpm redline. The combination of an iron block and an aluminum flywheel was used previously in the Cobra R. As in that car the 03 Cobra s engine is mated to a six-speed manual. Other driveline changes include a beefed-up clutch which engages lower in its travel than did the old one. The U-joints and half-shafts have been strengthened as well and the driveshaft is now aluminum. The final-drive ratio has been lowered from 3.27 to 3.55:1. With all that heavy-duty hardware we didn t feel the least bit bad repeatedly launching the Cobra in a cloud of tire smoke. (Traction control is on hand to prevent this from happening inadvertently but it does allow some wheelspin.) SVT engineers estimate that they ve chopped a good half-second off the 0-to-60-mph time; we recorded 4.9 seconds and the quarter-mile in 13.4 seconds at 109 mph. An electronic nanny steps in at 155 mph.Not only does the supercharger greatly increase the 4.6-liter s outputs but it also moves the torque curve down lower. The blower s only downside is that its shriek is the dominant engine note drowning out the V-8 rumble.The Cobra s brakes are carried over pretty much intact from the 2001 model; only the rear pad material has changed. Still with 13-inch Brembos up front and 11.7-inch rear discs (both vented) performance is up to par. For those headed to the racetrack SVT makes hi-po pads--their squealing keeps them from being standard issue. Interestingly the new front fascia incorporates openings next to the foglamps where enthusiastic owners could take things a step farther and add cooling ducts to the brakes. Ford s lawyers point out that this does not mean the responsible folks at SVT are encouraging racing mind you. We had some track time however on a road course at Bob Bondurant s Phoenix complex where we found the new Cobra to be not only ferociously quick but also more coordinated. With the supercharger and the iron block the new Cobra carries some 200 extra pounds most of it on the front wheels. But the chassis engineers have done a commendable job of keeping the car from feeling front-heavy. The mighty Mustang corners with aplomb.Up front there are increased spring rates and a fractionally thicker anti-roll bar. The independent rear suspension was fussed over a bit more with stiffer springs (except for the convertible which retains the 01 car s softer spring rates front and rear) new bushings revised geometry and a new brace attached to the differential to keep it in place during hard acceleration. Bilstein gas-charged monotube dampers deliver faster response and suffer less deterioration in performance caused by heat.The net effect of this tweaking is that the Cobra is a decidedly more enthusiastic partner in crime when you want to go screaming around corners. The engine and the chassis are particularly well matched. The wheels are nine inches wide up from eight inches but the engine is so much more powerful that the car doesn t feel over-tired. The car turns in well and there s plenty of torque to bring the back end around. What s really a blast is how controllable it all is. The Goodyear Eagle F1 tires are very benign in the way they relinquish grip so you can edge the Cobra into oversteer precisely as much or as little as you want to. It doesn t take a tremendous leap of faith or wild stabs at the pedals to unstick the rear end. For increased throttle sensitivity and ready power oversteer drive it in a lower gear with the revs at the top of the range. Holding you in place--or at the touch of a button clamping you in place--are new suede-and-leather seats that feature power-adjustable side bolsters in both the seat cushion and the seatback. These seats are far better than the Mustang Cobra seats of the recent past but unfortunately even at their most relaxed setting the cushion s lateral bolsters bec
