2000 Cobra R
In 2000, a special Cobra R came in limited production of 300 with a 5.4L DOHC engine (6500-rpm redline) that was rated at 385 hp (287 kW) and 385 lbf·ft (522 N·m) of torque, althoughindependent dyno tests have shown that it produced rear-wheel output that nearly matched both of those numbers, suggesting the ratings may have been under rated. This model was designed to be a raceready high performance vehicle in a perfectly street legal package; however it lacked many of the comforts the base production line Cobra enjoyed. This model had no radio/audio equipment, no airconditioning, and no rear seat. Each of the 300 produced featured a charcoal interior with Recaro buckets and sporting a Performance Red exterior.

This model also uses Bilstein rear shocks and MacPherson front struts, 4 piston/13 inch aluminum Brembos cooledby large ducts, along with a race-style fuel cell that is clearly visible protruding under the V6-style rear diffuser. The front bumper is adorned with a low riding, removable front diffuser. Thewheels are also uniquely styled silver five spoke 18-inch (460 mm) x 9.5-inch (240 mm) alloys wrapped in aggressive BF Goodrich G-Force KD tires. The hand built SVT engine employes special DOHC cylinderheads, a "Trumpet-style" intake manifold, aggressive camshafts, short tube heads, and connected to Cobra catalysts, a Bassani X-pipe, and a unique Borla dual side exiting exhaust system.
