Release Date: 5/11/2021
Was it a pony or a snake? Well, either way, the “R” stood for “Race.” The 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra R, a pony car, was the exclusive racing edition of the Cobra, stripped bare of numerous standard power options in order to be made a competitor. Be a winner and preorder yourself this racer!
The model was equipped with a variety of topline parts, including braces, struts, springs, and shocks. Especially important were powerful rotors to ensure such a speedy car would be able to stop. In order to make room, or to lighten the Cobra, the following items are just some of what you would not find in the R: radio, speakers, air conditioner, rear seat, rear safety belts, and rear carpeting. After all, this track edition went from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds with a top speed of 140 mph!
There were reportedly only 107 of these vehicles produced and, though intended for racing, many of them were bought by private collectors – though the vehicle did manage to show up for successful competition in some notable races, including the Sports Car Club of America World Challenge.
Every one of the Cobra R cars produced was finished in vibrant red and featured gloss black-painted wheels and a chrome lug cover. Our newly tooled edition mimics that traditional external look, but also includes authentic interior, engine, and chassis details.
