I got to run a prior body style svt mustang cobra yesterday coming home from work. It was a convertible, not sure how much weight that added to the car. Anyways, we were clipping along at 80 going across the bay and I had already downshifted into 3rd in case he wanted to play (I got the A4) and sure enough, I eased up beside him and the more I crept passed him the faster he went, then took off.
He got about a car on me but no more, my front bumper was almost even with his back bumper inch for inch until we got back into traffic. I pulled back up beside him again and smiled and gave him a thumbs up, which he returned, was a pretty cool experience.
I've seen videos of those svt mustang cobras beating up on gtos on youtube, so I had already mentally accepted the defeat in my mind before I even had a go at him. I was happy to see that he wasn't any stronger than me from an 80 mph roll on. From a dead stop at a stoplight, I'd imagine he'd have the advantage from the supercharger hitting it's powerband before an N.A. engine would. Anyways, just thought I would share.
