Magazine Featured Cobra Roadster Twin Turbo 385 V8/505 HP Porsche 5 Speed PS /// When Corky Bell set out to build the worlds most high tech Cobra, he assembled a talented cast of gearheads and began what would eventually be called Project Mongoose. Work primarily focused on creating athletic mechanicals that bettered the classic Cobra driving experience, and creating a cockpit that would actually sell to someone over average height. Ultimately, the build combined many high quality aftermarket components with a twin turbo V8, 11 custom cast parts and a slick Antiques & Collectibles composite body. And today, decked in a screaming combination of Bright Yellow and black, the car rolls as a virtually timeless hot rod that looks like a 10 and drives like an 11! Tilt the louvered hood and youll find 385 cubic inches of Ford Windsor V8 that twists 505 rear wheel horsepower into 540 lb./ft. of pavement-scorching torque. Take a look under the car and youll find a rigid 2-inch square-tube frame that, in addition to providing 14-15K lb./ft. of deflection, places 57% of the cars weight over its rear axles. That monocoque-reinforced foundation makes good use of a Porsche G50/50 5-speed transaxle, which has been reversed, inverted and mounted between a custom driveshaft, a Porsche limited-slip differential and a familiar Centerforce clutch pack. That incredible drivetrain rides on a fully independent suspension, which is fitted with Heim joints, Aldan coil-over-shocks and Woodward power rack-and-pinion steering. At the corners of that suspension, Baer 4-piston calipers clamp big, slotted rotors to provide consistent, sure-footed stops. And power meets the pavement via 17-inch Team III alloys that spin fresh 245/40 BF Goodrich g-Force T/As in front of 275/40 BF Goodrich g-Force T/As. With its high quality build, killer small block and track ready drivetrain, this vivid Cobra wraps an unmatched driving experience in spectacular good looks.
