Default Throwback Thursday - R&T Ford Mustang Cobra R First Drive

Ford Mustang Cobra R: First Drive

Quote:
This car is big fun, the sort that begs to be driven hard on the throttle. It pulls mightily out of the corners and oversteer is easily summoned with a quick stab on the accelerator. While the Cobra R is a winner in the Mustang versus Camaro war, and runs through the quarter mile in a virtual dead heat with the current Corvette, it's a Pyrrhic victory at best because a mere 300 cars are being produced at a premium price— $54,995. Therein lies the real challenge for Ford. The Cobra R is a nice start—now let's see some real numbers, as in volume, out on the street.

Because it was considered a factory race car and it was to be assumed that you were purchasing for use in SCCA type racing.

I remember how big of a deal these were when they dropped. Then the Z06 came out the next year and best it around a track with the AC on and you didn't need a special license to buy it. These are very cool though.

That engine should have been in the base Mustang GT of that vintage. Would have been an entirely different ball game.
