Yes, I realize that I would be better off posting in a mustang forum, but, there seems to be many people here that know quite a bit about mustangs, so here it is:
Whilst embarking on what was the best 80 miles I've ever driven my STI, I saw a unique looking mustang pull out in front of me.
It was black, with pretty aggressive ground effects, and had a wing bigger than my STi. On the back right, below the tailights was a big red "R", but, kinda like an Integra Type R R. At first, I thought "Cobra R", but, then a few things stood out:
1. It was almost as high off the ground as a V6
2. It had dual exhaust, but, with pretty wimpy looking pipes
3. The wheels were aftermarket, with more "bling" than performance, and couldn't have been more than 235's in width.
I did some further searching, and all I could find was a VERY expensive (60k) limited production Cobra R, from 2000. Possibly only sold in red.
So, was this guy dressing up a GT or V6 Mustang to look like a Cobra R you think? Did I spot a case of American Uncle Bens?
BTW- For anyone in SE Minnesota, I'd STRONGLY recommend driving Hwy 60 from Zumbro Falls to Wabasha, brand new black top, with very well banked curves, elevation changes and many 25 and 30 mph caution signs. 30 miles of bliss.
