The Ford Torino Cobra stood as the top performance model of the Torino range during the early 70’s. The GT remained the highest trim level, with the Cobra earning it’s performance credentials with tighter gear ratios and competition suspension. Equipped with a 7.0L V8, power output came in at 375 PS (276 kW) and torque was rated at 450 lb-ft (610 Nm). Despite all that power, acceleration was somewhat disappointing with the ignition system, intake manifold, carburetor and headers all lacking according to Super Stock and Drag Illustrated.
