Total Cobra R's Produced
Ultimate 2000 Mustang hits the street - and the track
(excerpt from Ford's website)
The fastest, best-handling Mustang ever has found its way to a small number of Mustang enthusiasts. Three hundred 2000 SVT Mustang Cobra R models rolled off the Dearborn Assembly Plant production line in May, and soon after hit select SVT-certified Ford dealer showrooms.
Cobra R is a limited-production, street-legal race-prepared version of the best-selling Ford Mustang. Built with the racetrack in mind, the Cobra R features a 5.4L DOHC modular V-8 engine, producing 385 HP and 385 ft.-lb. of torque.
The new Cobra R also features exterior enhancements that will boost performance on the racetrack, including a front air-splitter and tall rear deck spoiler, which will create downforce for increased stability at track speeds.
Other differences unique to the Cobra R include the power dome hood with a rear air extractor for improved engine cooling, 18-inch wheels shod with BF Goodrich g-Force KD tires, and a lowered suspension for enhanced handling.
Cobra R's interior changes include the addition of Recaro sport seats, and the removal of the radio, air-conditioner and back seat to save weight. A number of other well-respected performance parts suppliers are working with SVT in the development of the Cobra R, including Brembo for brake rotors and calipers, Tremec for the transmission, Eibach and Bilstein for suspension, and Borla for the exhaust.
There was a limited production of only 300 Cobra R models built on the same line of the Dearborn Assembly Plant that produces the V6, GT and Cobra Mustangs. The 2000 model is the third generation of the Cobra R, following the successful and still sought-after 1993 and 1995 Cobra R models.
