When it comes to low-mileage collector cars that aren’t exotic, this Mustang Cobra R sits at the top of the list
Ford launched the SVT Cobra R in 2000 as the fastest factory Mustang ever produced. The model was limited to only 300 units, and the fact that one of these 300 units is now available for sale is pretty impressive. But, what’s even more impressive is that this specific unit only has 1,905 miles (3,065 km) on the clock. The car is available for sale on collectingcars.com and, according to the owner it is “original and unmodified, and has been kept in excellent condition.”
Just like any other Cobra R, this unit is features a Performance Red finish combined with a smart dark charcoal interior.
The paint is in “fantastic condition” – which was to be expected based on the low mileage – and so is the dark Charcoal cloth upholstery for the front seats. The only thing missing is the original removable front splitter that has been misplaced.
The car is equipped with a set of 18-inch alloy wheels combined with lowered Eibach springs, Bilstein shocks and struts, and large 4-piston Brembo brake calipers. It also gets a side-exit dual exhaust system with Borla mufflers.
Under the hood the car carries a 5.4-liter V-8 engine that delivers a total of 385 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque.
The engine is mated to a Tremec T56 six-speed manual transmission. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds and can hit a top speed of 177 mph.
