This powerplant is making 518 Horsepower that's sent to the rear tires though a Tremec TKO600 5-Speed Manual Transmission and a BMW Independent Rear End with 3.46:1 Gears and Limited Slip! Driving this Cobra is a blast and it's also equipped with Rack and Pinion Steering and 4-Wheel Power Disc Brakes. The underside of this Cobra looks amazing like the rest of the car!
