This is the Terminator Cobra, developed at Ford by John Coletti and the SVT Development crew in 2003, and it’s completely hidden behind stock 1970 body panels. The firepower comes in the form of Ford’s 32 valve DOHC 4.6l aluminum motor, force-fed by Kenne Bell’s 2.6l Supercharger, producing an explosive 688 BHP. SVT’s six-speed T-56 fires all that power to the 3.55:1 ratio in the stout 8.8 rear end. Let’s not forget the Terminator cobra’s factory engineered independent rear suspension.
All this makes for a nice bit of kit, but the real trick is that these parts weren’t bolted onto a 50 year old chassis. The entire 21st century chassis of the Terminator Cobra is intact, with all its factory components in their stock positions, just as Camilo Pardo, the chief architect of the Ford GT Supercar designed it to be in 2003. For the competitive driver, this means Ford factory antilock brakes, traction control, airbags, and anti-theft all monitored through the factory OBDII port. You can plug this car in at any Ford Dealer or modern garage. There are many fine restomods out there promising modern performance in a classic body. But they rely on a concoction of aftermarket parts, parts produced by third parties, all bolted onto a vintage chassis. They never achieved the integrated balance and performance of the 1970 SVT Terminator. Best of all, it is all Ford with plentiful support and replacement parts from the Ford factory catalog. The 1970 SVT Terminator oozes classic John Wick style, but without the wheel hop, creaking leaf springs, or solid rear axel performance of classic muscle cars. This car is capable of a lateral-G, and has proven itself on autocross tracks across America. UK registered 1970 Ford Mustang, historic class. UK V5 DVLA certified and tax exempt. Health checked.
