White BA Cobra with Blue Strips 330+KW

I was at Brad Garlics today and this is what I saw

Very nice machine. I was in a hurry so I didn't get them to start it or show me any more, but I will be back in the next few days with a better camera, the Nokia Phones does it no justice. The twin exhaust on this beast, unlike the Black GT-P, on this machine has no mufflers, so they are really loud. The job is done by a muffler specialist in the area, it costs about $1800 when getting the full exhaust to have them custom the twin pipes. Cam they must have been reading your mind when you wanted to see the strips on a White Car

So close...

Ditch the tacky wheels and badges, the overdone bulge and the lighter blue stripes either side of the big ones, and put some rounder tips on the exhaust - like the Mustang - and you've got a winner in my books!

Would love to see the exhaust from underneath, I'm glad someone's doing it.

I think for that cobra image to work it really needs to be a GT, especially in terms of body kit.

I will see what I can do to get some underneath images later in the week when I get a much better camera

Re: White BA Cobra with Blue Strips 330+KW

Almost, but... The stripes need to go over the upper grille and rear numberplate light assembly as well. Would also prefer to see it without that aftermarket bonnet and badges. Very interested in the exhaust however.

Thanks anyway DGROMS.com, Cheers!

Stripes look ok, exhaust is good an don't mind the badges but the bulge looks firkin shite! Also the wheels look like it came of the front cover HOT 4's mag two years ago. Get somethin new if ya gonna build somethin like that!
