2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 10th Anniversary Edition, Convertible (Black Sunshine)
Last updated Mar 4, 2010
I was heading to pull Staff Duty one Monday night and decided to pull over at my local hotrod shop to see the Terminator convertible they had for sale out front. As it turned out, my current Mustang had just been paid off and the Cobra was reasonably priced (for a Cobra, LOL). The shop, Unlimited Performance, had tuned the engine to over 500hp already and had gotten it down to 11.6 in the quarter. I called my bank immediately. Here's the skinny on this rare machine:
2003 Cobras began hitting showrooms in June of 2002 with a supercharged 4.6L DOHC V-8 pushing 390-hp. Two inverted hood scoops extracted heat from the engine, the front and rear bumpers were redesigned, and GT side scoops and a new spoiler were added. The '03 Cobras had 6-speed manual transmissions.
Ten years after SVT introduced its first product--the 1993 SVT Cobra R--they released a special 10th Anniversary 2003 SVT Cobra. The 10th Anniversary Package was available as either a coupe or convertible, and featured unique 17x9-inch dark argent painted anniversary wheels, red leather seating surfaces in the front and rear, interior trim with the appearance of carbon fiber, red painted brake calipers, and SVT 10th Anniversary badges on the floor mats and rear decklid. SVT produced 2,003 units of the Anniversary model, which were available in Torch Red, Black Clearcoat, and Silver Metallic.

It a late model Mustang convertible that runs 11.6 in the quarter with AC blowing and stereo blasting so "Modifications" are a plenty.
