Ford doesn’t make an R Series Mustang often, but when it does, it goes big. The first Cobra R came out in 1993. The second was built in 1995. They were fun cars, but it’s the 2000 SVT Mustang Cobra R that made its mark as one of the serious bad boys in Ford motor history.
Only 300 of them were ever built. They were all showstoppers, available in only in Performance Red with a massive rear spoiler and street-sweeping front splitter. The interior came only in Dark Charcoal with Recaro seats and basic instrumentation dominated by a speedometer that went up to 180.
