FOR SALE: 2000 FORD MUSTANG COBRA R
Man when this beast first came out I just knew I had to have one. Everything from the wheels, hood, and spoiler out back is just awesome! I mean it\'s obvious the car was built to race.
The Cobra R Mustang ended up putting out 385 horsepower out of its naturally aspirated 5.4 liter V8. Right now a lot of you automotive enthusiasts might think that\'s not a whole lot of horsepower, but for a stock V8 back in 2000, it sure was a lot. For it\'s time it was the fastest Mustang ever produced from the factory. The muscle car\'s top speed was 170mph and it was also capable of going 0-60mph in around 4.4 seconds. Those times are pretty remarkable if you ask me!
For me the 2000 Cobra R Mustang has gone down in my automotive history book as one of my top 10 cars of all time. Some may think I\'m crazy, but it\'s true, I wouldn\'t trade this car for a Ferrari. You can obviously tell I\'m a big Mustang diehard fan! To say the least right?
In 2000, the Cobra R returned for a production run of 300 units (effectively taking the place of the standard Cobra for that model year) with a 5.4L DOHC engine (6500-rpm redline) that was rated at 385hp (287 kW) and 385 lbf·ft (522 N·m) of torque, although independent dyno tests have shown that it produced rear-wheel output that nearly matched both of those numbers, suggesting the engine may have been under rated. As before, this model was designed to be a race ready high performance vehicle in a perfectly street legal package; as such, it lacked many of the comforts the base production line Cobra enjoyed. This model had no radio/audio equipment, no air conditioning, and no rear seat. Each of the 300 produced featured a charcoal interior with Recaro buckets and sporting a Performance Red exterior.
This Cobra R model was purchase new September, 8 2000 from a Ford dealer in Palo Alto, California. This is unit #296 or 300, and is 100% stock and original.
