1996 SVT Mustang Cobra

The major change for the 1996 SVT Mustang Cobra was the moveto a brand-new, unique powertrain, a hand-assembled, all-aluminum dual overheadcam (DOHC) 4.6-liter V-8 rated at 305 horsepower. With its high-revving characteristics,the Modular engine was worlds apart from the venerable 5.0 small-block andushered the SVT Cobra into a new era of modern performance. The engine changebrought about a 65-hp increase over the previous year, good for a 0-60 mph timeof 5.9 seconds, the quarter-mile in 13.9 and a top speed of 152 mph. To enhancethe exclusivity of the Cobra Coupe, a unique high-tech, color-shifting paintdubbed “Mystic” was offered, with a one-time run of just 2,000 “Mystic” Coupesproduced.
