On my way back to work on my lunch break I get what appears to be a real nice black cobra all over my bumper on the exit ramp. I jump over to the left lane to see if he bites.... but he shakes his head no.
We cruise thru traffic, and at the last light before my work, we get lined up, first in traffic, side by side. I look over, hes staring straight ahead. On green, we both take off aggressively, and when I hear him get it, I lay into myself. Surprisingly, no pull on his part, top of first he may have a bumper on me. Powershift second and keep getting it, pulling 2ish cars on him by the time I have to shift to 3rd. By then I figured he let out, and let him come up beside me. He rolls down the window and asks what year. I say "v-6, 2012".... I may have broken his heart. He tries to ask me something else, sounded like about gears, but then he waved me off and dropped a gear. I drop it to second, and commence to pulling. I shifted to 3rd, and after seeing the puff of black smoke in the mirror from his shift, I stayed in it. By 100-110 it was at least 3 cars worth of distance between us. I busted a uie with my thumb out the window, he gave a honk, but stared straight ahead.
Now, folks will throw cobra emblems on anything, I know. But if this was a clone, it was a good one. Front bumper, front emblem, side emblems, and chrome cobra r's. There was a different looking spoiler on it, not sure if it was cobra-specific or not. I didnt think to look at the rear bumper, but I did notice the taillights, which told me the year model. Sounded great, but just not enough mods for todays tech....

Nah, even in Cobra trim these little v6's wouldn't/shouldn't have any problem. He yelled out something about "390", Im thinking he was asking about the gears in the car. Good thing I didn't yell back "2.73s"
I really dont wanna come off as a douche when I tell folks it's a v6, after beating them... but Im so damn proud of what it can do! The 2 guys this has happened to, their faces have been PRICEless!
