“ We have a simple rule of thumb for when it’s time to develop a new Cobra R:
First, when there’s a need, and second, when the new one will be able to outshine the old one by far.”
I This is the Masterpiece of the whole SN95 series. A true instant-collector car, coming out straightly from the genius team of John Coletti.
Presented the 2nd of November 1999 during SEMA show, The 2000 SVT Mustang Cobra R debuted as the fastest factory Mustang ever produced. Using a pickup engine, a 5.4 liter V8 Cast Iron block, Naturally aspirated, with custom alluminum heads, custom air intake manifold, SVT Team created one of the best car they ever made. produced 385 hp @ 6250 rpm, and 385 lbs.-ft of Torque @ 4250 rpm, good for 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds, the quarter-mile in 13.2 and a 170-mph top speed. As a true,racing model, Coletti and his team removed all the “unnecessary” weight: air conditioner, gone; rear seats, gone; interior insulation, gone; stereo system, gone; stock front seats, gone. The Recaro racing seats, side-exit dual exhaust the front air splitter and the rear wing, gave to the car superb stability and handling capabilities, and a very aggressive-racing oriented, group.
Just 300 units were made, available only in Performance Red Clearcoat.
