We believe the following info is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
The studio commissioned four cars from Dean Bryant, Car Builder for the Stars. One was used for normal driving and interior shots and Sly still owns that one. The other three were stunt cars and were driven by stunt drivers. They all had race car-like appointments instead of those of a street cruiser (poseur?).
Two of them were destroyed in filming and one is the sole surviving stunt car. It has a full cage and Recaro race seats. The current owner raced the car in the Carrera PanAmericana VII back in the late 80's. He also attempted to break the Land Speed Record for supercharged flat head V8's with it in 1989, but fell 3mph short. As of August 2002, this car was for sale on Ebay!!!
Ariel Millaire kindly updated us: One of the 1950 Mercury used in the film was, as mentioned, owned by Sylvester Stallone until a few years ago when it was stolen from storage. Some time later an unknown person contacted Stallone and asked if he wanted to buy it back. He declined. To this day it is still missing. (Source is Stallone himself in an interview with the fans on the site Ain't it cool news)
Next Section: Deleted Scenes
There are often scenes cut from the final version of a movie. Sometimes these will have been seen by preview audiences, or be included in Blu-ray or DVD extras etc.
Sometimes, there will be several versions of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may release a special cut of the movie on Blu-ray or DVD.The following versions of Cobra are apparently real. If you disagree or have additional info, please update us.
Some people mentioned that there was about 30 or 40 minutes cut from movie, maybe more.
Most of the violence is also cut, which is why scenes like hospital murders or final shootout look so choppy.
There is a workprint available that is over 2+ hours long and has all of the deleted material, but it is sourced from very low quality VHS.
