1996 Mustang Cobra

Another beautiful model, and it’s no surprise that it packs power under the hood as well. That being said, here is some information about the 1996 SVT Mustang Cobra!

1996 Mustang Cobra


Engine Type: V8
Horsepower: 305 @ 4800 RPM
Compression: 9.85:1

Torque: 300 ft/lbs @ 4800 RPM

While the ’95 adopted a new body style, it kept the same 5.0L engine. However, the ’96 SVT dropped to a 4.6L but as you may notice there were considerable increases in HP and TQ.

Top Speed: 152 MPH
0-60 MPH: 5.9 seconds

The 1996 dropped back under the 6.0 second 0-60 time and the top speed increased 12MPH over that of the ’95. That’s what we like to see!
