Car-ma Chameleon: twin-turbo Cobra convertible rips at the track

The color-changing “Mystichrome” paint was a special, and pricey, option for the SVT Mustang when Ford debuted it in 2004. It’s a rarity as a result—can you imagine color-matching nicks and scrapes on it?

Therefore, it’s beyond cool to see the colors shimmering on this track-punishing twin-turbo Cobra convertible on the dragstrip.

With twin Precision Turbos (if the sticker on the front bumper is to be believed), this thing straight up roasts its 26-inch Hoosiers, well into the Albuquerque desert night.

On one run, it even nearly loses control, and you know how hard it’d be to repaint that bodywork.
