1993 SVT Mustang Cobra R

To demonstrate Ford’s commitment to racing and showcase its newly formed Special Vehicle Team, a 1993 SVT Mustang Cobra R model was developed with a form-follows-function race-car mentality. Starting with a production SVT Mustang Cobra, anything that contributed to excess weight was eliminated, including the back seat, radio, air-conditioning and sound dampening material. The R model’s track-inspired handling came from heavy-duty MacPherson struts, Koni shocks on all four corners and the use of a front-strut tower brace. Intended for serious racers and available only in red, production of the 1993 SVT Mustang Cobra R was limited to just 107 vehicles.
