Most of these stats look really suspicious for the p/w ratio. Can anyone check if it really does 0-100 in just 4.5 seconds? Cause that's almost Ferrari level.

@ milehisnk, not really. An e46M3 perhaps, but not an e92M3.
(just look at the Willow Springs laptimes...)

This car would absolutely eat alive the E92 M3, straight line and curves. That's what it was made to do

The submitter forgot to capitalize the "R" after Cobra. :P

GM didn't have anything that could beat it in 2000. When the C5Z came around (in 01), the corvette was clearly faster. The R's supremacy was short lived, like all quick cars.

you really think GM had nothing that can beat this car http://www.fastestlaps.com/comparisons/chevrolet_corvette_c5_z06_2001-vs-ford_mustang_svt_cobra_r.html

Also, this isn\'t the only mustang with an IRS. Educate yourself.

This car pulled over 1G in MY 2000 and ran quicker times around Waterford Hills than a C5Z, SRT10 Viper, and an E92 M3 and you people think it was no good? Wow... tough crowd.

Yes, corvettes were priced similarly (actually less), but you have to remember that GM had NOTHING that could touch this in 2000. All they had was the base C5, and that would get demolished by this. Even the C5Z could possibly barely beat it.

Fords are great cars and they found a way to make the live rear axle work while still making the Mustang affordable.

The one shot at an independent suspension, Ford is for losers.

I think the real issue is that Corvettes are $50,000+. I can't see why Corvette priced Mustangs exists when the Vette is typically superior in everyway. But those loyal to Ford have their reasons.

You have to admit, $55,000 for this isnt bad at all! and great fun here. ill admit 55K for a Mustang is pretty high, but for its Exclusivity, and dashing looks, i wouldnt mind paying that much.

Sure, because before you got away I would simply run you off the road LOL

Anonymous on top is gay and wouldn't know cars even if one bit him on the arse. I'd put this up against whatever you drive anyday

just think how much faster than an M3 this would be if you added 13psi to the equation. oh ya **** imports.


User avatar

BumRush  14y ago

i am curious what more times this car could produce, but its so damned rare that there will prolly be damn near none, but it could prolly take the R26 on longer tracks, but tight twisty tracks...(maybe). doubt it could take the R26R though. straightline yes, round a track...hard to say! and it definetly wont take an E92 M# in a straightline or round a track, it will keep up with it, but not beat it.

this will eat a Megane R26, not an E92 M3 though.

100km/h is 62mph

Georg  14y ago

most likely 4.5s is a 0-60mph time not 0-100km/h time... 0-160km/h(100mph) the M3 is clearly faster by one second


User avatar

man KC  14y ago

4.5 sec to 100... geez... thats faster than a BMW M3. Must be underrated.
