3k-Mile 2000 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R #51/300

We are pleased to offer this 2000 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R.  Representing the ultimate track-oriented road-legal version of the Ford Mustang, the Cobra R was developed by Ford’s Special Vehicles Team (SVT) and produced in limited quantities.  The fourth-generation Mustang Cobra R came standard with Bilstein shock absorbers, Brembo brakes, front and rear spoilers, side-exit exhaust, and a handbuilt 5.4L V8 engine paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential.  The 2000 model year saw the production of only 300 examples, all finished in Performance Red over a lightweight Dark Charcoal interior with Recaro bucket seats.  This particular Cobra R, #51/300, had remained with its last owner for 7 years while covering just over 100 miles.  It was recently acquired by the seller and has since been serviced and fitted with a set of new tires.  Preserved in outstanding condition with just over 3,600 miles traveled from new, this rare and highly collectible Mustang Cobra R is being offered for auction by its seller out of California.

This Cobra R comes finished in Performance Red (ES) and features a power dome cowl hood, a large rear wing, a removable front spoiler, side-exit exhaust, and front brake cooling ducts.  A professional paint correction has been recently carried out and the seller reports common bubbling on the fiberglass hood as well as a small crack in the front splitter near the right-side brake duct.  Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.  This Cobra R rides on model-specific 18”x9.5” cast aluminum wheels which have been recently fitted with new Michelin Pilot Sport All-Season tires.

The driver is situated within a Dark Charcoal interior featuring manually adjustable cloth Recaro bucket seats with logos embroidered on the seatbacks.  For weight savings, the Cobra R was offered without a sound system, air conditioning, rear seats, sound deadeners, and cruise control.  The center console houses basic ventilation controls and a B&M Ripper short-throw shifter with a leather-wrapped gear knob.  The interior is described to be highly original, and the seller reports the driver-side window regulator has been recently replaced.

This Cobra R is equipped with a handbuilt SVT 5.4L V8 engine with special DOHC cylinder heads, high-performance cams, and a trumpet-style intake manifold.  The engine is connected to an exhaust consisting of short-tube headers, Cobra catalytic converters, a Bassani X-pipe, and Borla mufflers.  As much as 385 HP and 385 lb.-ft of torque are sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed Tremec T-56 manual gearbox with close-ratio gears and a Gerodisc hydro-mechanical limited-slip differential.  The “R” Competition Package also includes heavy-duty Bilstein Monotube dampers, Eibach springs, a heavy-duty aluminum radiator, an auxiliary oil cooler, thicker anti-roll bars, upgraded engine mounts, a 21-gallon fuel cell, and large Brembo brakes with 4-piston calipers and 13” vented discs.  An oil change has been recently carried out by a Ford dealer in preparation for sale.

This sale will include a clean title.  Produced in low numbers with a unique race-ready configuration, the SVT Cobra R is well on its way to becoming one of the most valuable and sought-after Mustangs of the modern era.  Do not miss the opportunity to add this low-mileage example to your collection.
