MkIV Cobra Roadster
The Megastar of all Musclecars
Factory Five Racing Mk IV Roadster, F5R1007311RD. Thisis a masterfully handcrafted Canadian FactoryFive Roadster finished in RavenBlack with only 4,468 km (2,775 miles).
Propelling this serpent is acustom-built, fully-polished 428FE crate motor with all the bells &whistles and over 500 horsepower. The hard-bodied persona and the mean, throatysound of this black mamba elicits multiple honks and ‘thumbs up’ every time it’son the road. Never fails to put a smile on my face every time I cut ’er loose.
