The 1993 Mustang Cobra is displayed at the 1992 Chicago Auto Show. Varying from the GT is the restyled front valance, unique 17-inch seven-spoke aluminum alloy wheels, rear wing and Cobra badges.
’93 SVT Mustang Cobra’s performance is also enhanced with GT-40 cylinder heads, Borg-Warner T-5 manual transmission, Koni shocks and bigger brakes. Another unique feature of the SVT Mustang Cobra is that it is not available with an automatic transmission.
Also, the 1993 SVT Mustang Cobra R was sold out before it was even released. This 235- horsepower model, intended for racing, was stripped of its rear seat, radio, and sound dampeners to increase speed. Specially tuned suspension allowed it to become the most nimble Fox Mustang ever. Only 107 Cobra R-models are produced, most of which belong to collectors.
