At the 2007 Bathurst 1000, Ford Performance Vehicles unveiled a new limited edition Cobra, celebrating 30 years since Moffat and Bond's 1-2 finish. Like the original, the new FPV GT Cobra sedan has a certified build of just 400 units. In addition, a Cobra Ute was created, of which just 100 were built. Both cars are powered by the 5.4-litre Boss 302 engine; the name is derived from the 302kW.
However, this 1970 Torino King Cobra, one of only three built by Ford as a NASCAR aero special, has managed to survive for 49 years. Of the trio, it was the only one equipped with a 4-speed transmission. By 1970, the NASCAR aero wars had evolved into the sleek-nose and winged Charger Daytonas and Plymouth Superbirds. To counter Mopar’s aerodynamic dominance, Ford instructed designer Larry.
The 1978 Ford Mustang II King Cobra is a pony car by Ford that debuted in Forza Motorsport 4 and returned in Forza Horizon 2 as part of the Playground Select Car Pack. It is featured as standard in all subsequent main series titles except for Forza Horizon 4.
DIFFERENTIALS The rear end in a King Cobra was an 8-inch Ford unit, and while not as stout as a Ford 9-inch, which is used by all NASCAR teams today, it was more than capable of withstanding the low-performing 302 engine. There were several ratios available including 2.75:1, 2.79:1, 3.00.1 and 3.40.1. The four-speed came standard with the 3.00:1 ratio. Ford rear ends are among the strongest.

This 1978 King Cobra represents possibly the ultimate expression of the Mustang II, and rocks all the right features for the era. That’s a 302 V8, a four-speed stick, flashy and borderline.
The King Cobra project added numerous visual modifications to the Ford Torino. The front fascia and the front fenders received major overhauls, as Ford looked to improve the car’s aerodynamics.
