Description:

Factory Five Cobras not only capture the look of the world''s favorite Anglo-American hybrid, but they were clever enough to build a car that takes advantage of the world''s biggest supply of aftermarket performance. With a stout fuel-injected Mustang 5.0 under the hood and a Cobra-grade suspension, this is a very formidable roadster that''s also reliable enough to drive every day. You know the old line about black being the hardest color to perfect? It''s true, and the guys who built this car went the extra mile to make sure there were no disappointments. With PPG black paint and those icy blue stripes, there''s no disguising the Cobra shape, but this one takes on an altogether more menacing persona than many of its siblings. Factory Five''s fiberglass is better than most, so the car fits together quite well and with just a bit of prep, ends up looking like a million bucks. All the original Cobra design cues are there, from the jacking stubs to the side pipes to twin roll bars for driver and passenger, proving once again that no car has survived the passage of history better than the Cobra. This is not a purist''s car, of course, but if you want an awesome-looking snake that moves even better than it looks, this is your car. I''m guessing the intent was to build a car that is as happy on the track as on the street, and the competition-grade bucket seats seem to bear this out. Fitted with Simpson harnesses for both driver and passenger, you feel bolted directly to the car and can feel every move it makes in the seat of your pants. Black carpets help with heat control, but it''s very bare-bones in the best sense of the word inside. A stylish dashboard houses modern Auto Meter Ultra Lite gauges and while the wheel has a traditional Cobra logo, the fat leather-wrapped rim is purely to help you hold on tight. A billet shifter manages five gears instead of four, and it''s nice to see authentic little details like the leather check straps on the doors and simple latch hardware. A Sony AM/FM/CD stereo system was cleverly hidden in the trunk, along with the Optima battery and for a sporting car, the fully finished cargo bay is a nice touch. While a heavy 427 scores cool points, if you''re going to actually drive your Cobra an injected 5.0 is going to deliver more fun per cubic inch. Decked out with all the latest and greatest 5.0 upgrades, from the polished intake to the GT40 aluminum heads, this stout small block grunts out a very impressive 360 horsepower. And thanks to the wonders of the Performance Products fuel injection, it starts instantly and runs like a scalded cat regardless of ambient conditions. Cobra valve covers add a nostalgic touch, and if you''ve been under the hood of a 5.0 Mustang, you''ll feel right at home here. Backed by a 5-speed gearbox and 8.8-inch rear, it has a gear for every occasion, from pulling a hole-shot to cruising on the highway. The tubular frame is very nicely finished, and with rack-and-pinion steering, 4-wheel Wilwood disc brakes, and a set of coil-over shocks up front, handling is far sharper than anything with a big block could be. Gorgeous 17-ich Cobra R wheels look great and carry 235/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear BFGoodrich radials. So if it''s a Cobra you seek, this very drivable and very fast Factory Five roadster does everything quite well. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
