5.0 Mustang & Super Fords
Sleeper 1999 Ford Mustang Cobra - Stealth Fighter
Glenn Fukui's '99 Cobra Proves Looks Can Be Deceiving-Exotics Beware!
Power output is to this point unmeasured, but the considerable twist is sent rearward via an aluminum flywheel, a Centerforce clutch, a T56 six-speed, and a PST carbon-fiber driveshaft. The PHP-braced 8.8 was fitted with 4.10 gears and a Torsen differential, so you know the rev-happy Four-Valve is getting a real workout at the whim of the driver's right foot.
Such enthusiastic driving is what Glenn's Cobra is all about, and it seems the perfect high-tech partner to his yestertech '66 Tiger-a nitrous-fed, Boss-blocked screamer. Compared to the high-strung Sunbeam, modern technology makes for a ride that is truly dual purpose, yet both cars reinforce one of Glenn's basic tenets in life-which is to say all his vehicles must approach a lofty 500hp threshold. Yet another stablemate and participant in this big power game is an F350 dually with a blower-cammed EFI 460 and Vortech S-Trim. It makes for quite a tow rig, to be sure! Did we mention the extension of the 500-horse rule is that all vehicles in Glenn's life be Ford-powered? Yup, and it helps further explain the absence of an exotic in his garage, doesn't it? Now when the new Ford GT hits the market...
