The November 2005 issure of Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords had a 4 page color article this month featuring interviews with Hau Thai-Tang, Director of Advanced Product Creation and SVT, Jay O'Connell, Chief Engineer of SVT, Tom Jones, SVT Chief Program Engineer, and Alan Hall, SVT Communications Engineer.

Among some highlights:

--Hau Thai-Tang mentioned that SVT is planning on building between 7,000 and 10,000 new Cobra GT500s per year.

--All 4 managers stated that the new Cobra GT500 will produce "at least" 450hp, with Thai-Tang adding "...with emissions, fuel-economy tests, drive-by exhaust noise calibrations, and other tuning exercises, the number could possibly increase for the iron-block, aluminum-head, supercharged 5.4 32-valve engine."

--O'Connell says that "We should be in the mid 0.9g range (on the skidpad) and still have 20,000 mile tread life."

haha My guess is this thing is just like the rest of the hi-po vehicles lately, making close to that number at the wheels. I stand by my opinion that these will be 11 second cars stock.
