The 1995 Cobra R, which originates from the SVT, is the most intense factory Mustang to date. Originally built for the track, it is equipped with a competition suspension, heavy-duty radiator and oil-cooler, 351 marine block with GT-40 cylinder leads, Tremec five-speed transmission and p255/45ZR17 BF Goodrich Comp T/A radials. It lacks air conditioning, back seats, and stereo. A competition license from a sanctioned racing body is required in order to purchase one of 250 white Cobra R models.
A Cobra R, considerably one of the most “potent” Mustangs ever to roll off the Dearborn assembly line, has unique 5-spoke “R” wheels, a fuel cell, and a raised fiberglass hood. Its 5.8 liter 300-horsepower/365 foot-pounds of torque make its presence clearly known.
The 5.0L 302 cid V8 disappears from the Mustang following the ’95 year. This marks the end of the Mustangs overhead-valve/pushrod-engine era. Also, the SVT badge appears on the Cobra for the first time.
