with a central backbone as well as a new drive-train (the 1996
Mustang SVT Cobra all-aluminum V8 4.6L which had a 100bhp increase

a wider track with new independent suspension all the way around,
bigger brakes, wheels and tires and a roomier enlarged interior
with air conditioning and a soft top, all standard. The car enjoys
the distinction of America's first Aluminum Intensive Vehicle
