Ford Mustang Cobra R: First Drive
This car is big fun, the sort that begs to be driven hard on the throttle. It pulls mightily out of the corners and oversteer is easily summoned with a quick stab on the accelerator. While the Cobra R is a winner in the Mustang versus Camaro war, and runs through the quarter mile in a virtual dead heat with the current Corvette, it's a Pyrrhic victory at best because a mere 300 cars are being produced at a premium price— $54,995. Therein lies the real challenge for Ford. The Cobra R is a nice start—now let's see some real numbers, as in volume, out on the street.
