LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 2000 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R
Under the careful supervision of Ford’s Special Vehicle Team boss John Coletti, the team set about to build a follow up to the impressive 1993 and 1995 Cobra R’s. These cars were simple in premise, stripped out, lightweight track oriented cars. Special suspension, special drivetrain and engine modifications, anything not necessary was removed to save weight – no sound deadening materials or insulation, no A/C, no back seat, radio delete and a fuel cell instead of a fuel tank.
For the 2000 “R” model they even took it a step further. Powered by a special 5.4L DOHC 32v naturally aspirated engine with 385hp backed by a Tremec T56 6 speed transmission. Other upgrades include Brembo brakes, B&M Shifter, Recaro racing seats, Borla side exit exhaust with Bassani X pipe, Eibach coil springs with Bilstein shocks and finished off with the wildest, yet very functional aero accessories ever seen on a production Mustang. The result was a car capable of 170 mph top speed, over 1.01g’s on the skidpad, braking 60-0 in under 110 feet and 12 second ¼ mile times. Only 300 were produced, an incredible all around car and well deserving of the name “R”.
Presented here is 1 of the 300 Cobra “R” Mustangs factory produced. Collector owned and maintained since new, this special Mustang has traveled only 1,677 original miles from new. The car shows beautifully throughout, the Recaro seats show no wear, the fiberglass hood which is prone to cracking across the front is in perfect condition.
For the Ford or performance Mustang enthusiast, this is perhaps the ultimate Mustang, incredible performance and limited production, the makings of a future classic!
