  • Ford Mustang Cobra R (1995)
.
The Ford Mustang Cobra R was a special edition version where you needed to show proof of a racing license and competition experience to put your name forward for the chance to own one of the 250 examples. Ford wanted this 300hp Chevy Z28 monster out on the race track winning races and not sitting on the forecourts taking it easy.

The Cobra R package meant that the Mustang R was almost double the price of a Mustang Cobra. It came fitted with the 300-hp, 351-cubic inch V8, borrowed from the SVT F-150 Lightning.  It needed a special fiberglass bonnet to clear the intake manifold and Ford added a few hot-rod improvements to the suspension to help it on the track. The SVT team knew what they were doing when they built it: They had to make do with a chassis and a engine that were considered out of date at the time, but they fettled everything together and the Mustang Cobra R comes alive on the race track.

Looked on by modern standards, the Cobra R isn't seeringly quick running the quarter-mile in 14.0 seconds. It even lags behind that of a modern Ecoboost four-cylinder Mustang.

But everything changes when you fire up the big V8. The thrilling growl of the overhead-valve V8 and the milled-steel precision of the Tremec gearbox say purebred racer to anybody who's ever muscled a wild steed around a race track.

  • A year ago these moldings were retouched with black paint. Today they have become opaque because the blue paint has been sanded, this has caused them to need to repaint those pieces.
