Barely used with only 239 Miles on the clock - many of these SVT Rs were cottonballed as soon as they were bought in anticipation of price rises, and it might have been a good strategy if you had the spare cash to do so at the time. This one was advertised on Ebay in Martch 2017, with reserve not met at $55,100, with 1 day remaining. Another we have on the register was asking nearly $70,000 USD earlier in the year, also having exceptionally low mileage.
The seller notes that this car was a local trade-in - the car was purchased by the previous owner in 2004. The Cobra version of the Mustang produced 235hp from its enhanced Windsor 5.0l engine, and had many other improvements throughout the car including tuned suspension for improved handling, enhanced braking with discs all around and unique body components for identification. The Cobra R provided enthusiasts with the foundation to build a competitive track car. This included improvements to the suspension, brakes and cooling: convertible chassis bracing, revised spring rates for a lower stance, adjustable Koni struts and shocks, 13-inch front brake rotors with twin-piston calipers, larger radiator and oil cooler. The back seat, air conditioning, radio, power windows and power door locks were deleted to reduce weight. Externally, the fog lights were also removed providing openings for racer-installed brake-cooling ducts, and the 17-inch 6-spoke cast aluminium wheels sourced from the upcoming 1994 Mustang were painted black for a distinctive look.
