  1. the day I spend $60,000+ on a Ford

    what a completely unrealistic price tag. For that kind of money u could drive away in a much more prestigous car. this car sucks compared to a Z06 (which costs less), a Bmw m3 or M convertible (all less expensive), an Audi S6 Avant (...yup it still costs less), A Mercedes SLK32 AMG (about the same price). This is all considering that it's built on the frame of $20,000 car. don't give me any of that but look at the specs because the specs of most of these cars are the same.

    Ford needs to think about who would spend $60,000+ on a Ford. It's nice though.<!-- Signature -->

    Who ???

    Hey, smart, these cars were ALL sold BEFORE they launch !!

    This car IS one of the 3 (THREE) BEST handling cars in the World !!

    Maybe you need to think a little less !!!<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Wow!!! Hold your horses [hehe <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">] there for just a second!

    Are you saying that there is only like 2 cars in the world that can handle better than the Cobra??????

    Now you have got to realize how far off you are! Maybe YOU need to think A BIT MORE next time before you say something like that!

    If you make a list with the cars with the best handling, this tank would be FAR off the pace.

    The (stock) cars with the best handling would have to be Lotus, Caterham and Porsche.

    It was equal to the Z06 in 2000. And the Z06 is a great value. It only cost a few more thousand back then (which is nothing for 50k cars), and these cars (Z06 + Cobra R) were beating up on cars with price tags 2x as much. An m3? An audi S6? Your kidding, right? They didn't have the slightest trouble selling them, and they won't have any trouble selling the GT40, a 100,000$ Ford.

    P.S. MSRP was 55k, not even close to 60
     
  5. An M3 could beat this any day. I've got an 1998 SHO and it is slow. U can buy cars w/ better handling for less.<!-- Signature -->

    M3: 13.5@105
    http://www.caranddriver.com/xp/Caranddriver/previews/2000/December/200012_preview_BMW_m3.xml?keywords=m3


    Don't even think about saying on a track the m3 would win.
     
  7. lol thats funny...the Cobra R would run circles around an m3.<!-- Signature -->
     

  8. The Cobra R wasn't intended for mass production..It was intended for those collectors...M3 is in Production... The Cobra R WAS limited production..so those cars..or maybee any car is hard to compare with..
    I mean..u go up to ur friend and say HEY!! I got a car that no one else has!!!! sounds a bit better thatn HEY!!! i got the same car you got!!!<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. yea..thats me underneth the gilotene<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. I agree $60,000 for this car is way to much...<!-- Signature -->

    Dumbass, it is not. It will beat up on imports that cost 2x as much. It had the same performance as the current z06 when it came out and only costed a couple grand more. That's nothing [the couple grand] considering how great of a performance bargain you probably think the z06 is.

    P.S. 55,000 is NOT 60,000<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. how true!<!-- Signature -->

  14. I dont think Porsches are the best handling cars in the world (or in top 3). My friend has a 97' boxster with about 1000 miles on it with stock tires. We live in West Virginia where the roads are very windey out in the country, anyway I have (had) a 96 Mazda Mx-5 Miata with Bridgestone Potenza's and he was following me out to a state park which is pretty far out in the country and he slid out going around a turn trying to catch me that I took going faster in my 5000 dollar car with 300 dollar set of bridgestone's. Granted his car is very nice it looks good has a great interior but its not fast and it doesnt handle all that well not as much as people make it out to be. Those are my two cents you can call me a liar but it's true.
     
  15. I would pay 60,000+ for this car! Its awesome!!!
     
  16. Actually, in response to your sig, NOS is a company, Nitrous Oxide Systems. NOx is the correct name
     
  17. The ZO6 handles better than the cobra R.
     
  18. and just think, when you see one of these being sold in 20 years you can say that someone is is crazy for spending $150,000 on a 2000 Mustang. yeah, real crazy investment. the M3 still look good?
     
  19. In most of the track tests they said that the handleing was amazing so unless you have driven one I dont think you have much room to talk.
     
  20. I wuold proboly never spend 60 G's on a car unless I get really rich let alone a FORD, ford is crap. Lingenflter Vette would kill this car in any race. Did I mention FORD IS CARP!
     
  21. Ford makes kick ass cars!!!Ex:2000 FORD SVT Mustang Cobra R. A lingenflter vette isnt manufactured by the company dumbass so off course it would be fast, since all of GM's cars SUCK DOG. And if you dont have 60,000 G's then why are you looking at vette's. by the way that you spell, i think that you are a kid still in high school dreaming of haveing a Civic one day. What the hell is "FORD IS CARP".......ford is fish???? Think before you type and by the way there is this new thing out called "Spell Check" maybe you've heard of it?

  23. I would get the Elise too,and that Cobra R got "spanked",lol!
     
  24. This isnt a mass production car like all the rest of the ones you named. Plus the SLK32 sucks--all the rest are nice though. Who knows why for some reason Ford made this Cobra. Its more powerfull than the 2001 and 2002. But there are also only 300 of them in the world. And a unique design you will never see on a Mustang. How many 2000 Corvettes are there?
     
  25. What??? Hey Smart ARSE, maybe, I repeat, MAYBE this car MIGHT be one of the three best handling cars in its class (and that with a LOT more tuning than just the suspension upgrades I'm aware of), but it is most definitely NOT one of the best handling in the WORLD, I mean to begin, how many different F1 cars have ever been made? And that's not even making the slightest mark in the surface, I can think of cars from 7 different companies that easily handle better than this off the top of my head.
