Compare to the Spin-Axe, the Spin Cobra has some major differences: The inclusion of the triangle side wings on the rear of the front wheel fenders, the removal of the front wheel guards, the change from vertical fins to straight fins as well as the use of the silver-plated chassis. The silver-plated parts on the front can be removed, revealing part of the mechanical chassis. The decal design, unlike the Spin-Axe, is mostly symmetrical, with the 'Spin Cobra' decal on the front.
As the bodyshell of the Spin Cobra was molded in clear plastic, it can be painted in any color. The preferred color is mach blue. It has the yellow and red, thunder-styled body decals.

In both media, the Spin Cobra has the aerodynamic adjustment system on the rear of the front cowls. In the manga, it has the rollers hidden in the side wings as well as the electronic steering system which was controlled by the microchip inside it, while in the anime it has the aluminum honeycamb-like composite bodyshell that can neutralizes the Beak Spider's wind cutter attack. Where the manga version has the mechanical chassis, the anime version has the white, front-motor chassis.
In WGP, it was once converted into the double-motor setup, but was later reverted back to the front-motor setup after the trouble caused by said setup. During the race against Rosso Strada, the Spin Cobra was severely damaged when it was impaled on a statue. While the Spin Cobra was quickly replaced by the Spin-Viper following the race in the manga, the anime has the Spin Cobra repaired and Tokichi enter the race with both machines, temporaily filling a empty grid spot left by Retsu when he was absence due to injury. Following the race, the Spin Cobra was retired from the WGP and reverted into a normal Mini 4WD car, as its techniques were passed onto the Spin-Viper during the race.
