Ford Motor Co. will commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Mustang's launch with an anniversary edition and a high-performance variant called the Cobra R.
Only 300 Mustang SVT Cobra R coupes will be built. The powertrain has not been specified, but Ford says the engine will top the current Cobra's 320 hp. Other enhancements are a six-speed gearbox, racing brake rotors from Brembo S.p.A, and stiffer springs and shock absorbers.
Ford will modify the Cobra's independent rear suspension to handle the higher power.
The company also is producing a 35th anniversary edition Mustang. The production run of 6,000 cars will be split evenly between coupes and convertibles.
The $2,695 appearance package features body-colored hood scoops, side scoops, and rocker panel moldings, black stripes on the hood and trunk, embroidered seats and floor mats, interior and exterior logos, and an aluminum shift knob for manual transmission models.
