2000 Mustang SVT Cobra R Coupe
Red w/Gray interior. 5.4 liter/385hp, 6-spd manual transmission. For those of you looking for one of the rarest and meanest Mustangs ever offered, this SVT Cobra R would certainly fit the bill!
Number 5 of only 300 built and BRAND NEW with only 55 miles, it's likely one of, if not THE lowest mile examples on the market!
Ford SVT engineers took a stock Mustang Coupe and transformed it into a factory race car by both adding performance parts-and taking away almost anything that didn't contribute to it going FAST (0-60 in 4.4 sec and 12.9 sec 1/4 mile!!). First a 5.4 liter D.O.H.C. V-8 was shoehorned in between the front fenders with a Borla exhaust system utilizing 3 mufflers and side exiting pipes. Then the stock T-5 transmission was swapped out for a heavy duty Tremec T-56 6-spd. Eibach springs, induction-hardened halfshafts, a 3.55 rear axle and sticky BFG G-Force radials w/forged aluminum wheels were added to make it handle to the tune of 1.01 G's! Brembo front brakes w/4-piston calipers aid in stopping power and a 21 gal. fuel cell out back for added safety on and off the track.
The SVT boys then proceed to lighten things up a bit by removing the radio, a/c, back seat and most of the sound deadening material found in stock Mustangs. The result is a "Super" Cobra that is more race car than street car!
