wheels were the largest change for the 1998 Cobra. These were identical
to those used on the '95 Cobra "R", except the wheel cutouts were
now painted grey.
New in the interior was a new leather pattern
as well as the console being redesigned. The clock pod that was found on
previous years was removed, and the clock could now be found on the radio
display. A CD player was now standard.
