How fast is this car?? And few other things?

I am curious what the 0-60 time on a modified 03 ford mustang cobra svt terminator would be? It is producing 700 horsepower at the flywheel. It's current 1/4 mile time is 10.27 at 133 mph. It has twin turbos and various other upgrades. At $12,200 is this car a good buy or a bad buy? It has slightly less than 24,000 miles on it. It would be my first car. Is this a good first car? I have driven acura rsx type s and it was a car that was pretty easy for me to handle and I have driven trucks since I was 10. My family owns a 3000 acre ranch so it is legal for me to drive the ranch roads and I do it most of the year. I know the mpg is not going to be good but what is your estimate for standard highway driving? Is this car going to be any good on snowy or wet roads or will it slide all over the place. I live in Colorado so I will drive in quite a bit of snow. Thanks!!

Absolutely not. This sounds like a purpose built car. I have a feeling daily driving was not that purpose. Let go through your criteria again:

1) how fast is this car? - you answered that already. Scary fast.

2) is 12,200 bucks a good buy? - on first impressions, yes. When you think about it, no. a 700hp twin turbo engine's life span is not very long. especially when this is going to be a daily driven car. That fact that you provided exact information on this cars 1/4 times and speed are a testiment to how hard this car has already been driven. Be prepared for a engine rebuild that costs about as much as the car did.

3) No way in hell is this a good first car. Get a car that you can actually drive within the cars capability. This car is downright irresponsible to buy at a young age. You are likey to hurt yourself or others trying to go faster that you know how to go.

4) gas mileage is not going to be good anywhere. You will need to use at least 93 octane at all times, or risk blowing up the engine. Pair expensive fuel with sub 20mpg and you might as well be driving a motorhome.

Trust me dude, get a sport compact car and enjoy performance driving that you, or your parents, can afford. That mustang may seem temtping but it is stupid. it is obviously a racecar and not smething intended for daily driving. The clutch is probably miserable is heavy traffic too..

This doesn't sound like a good car for you. A first car with that kind of power can be dangerous. Get something to "learn the ropes" on. A beast like that will earn you some speeding tickets guaranteed and will be hard to control whenever you push it (and lets face is your gonna want to push it.)

You can drive it every day, there won't be any problem with that, but you have to realize that a car with a lot of upgrades (like this one) is going to be more expensive to maintain and it will also be more frequent maintenance.

Do yourself a favor and get a normal car for your first car. If you want a fast car get an entry level Mustang.

Be careful man, every new driver gets tickets. Just realize that when you get a faster car you are probably going to get even more.
