The Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R is one of the coolest muscle cars of the early 2000s. Heck, it's one of the coolest cars of that decade, hands-down. This one's barely been driven since it rolled off the factory line over two decades ago. Now, you can own it.

The SVT Cobra R was the ultimate iteration of Ford's "New Edge" fourth-generation SN95 Mustang. It got a 5.4-liter V-8 with dual-overhead cams sending a factory-rated 385 horsepower to the rear wheels via a Tremec T-56 manual transmission, paired with a bunch of cool upgrades like Brembo brakes, Bilstein shocks, aluminum wheels, Recaro seats, Borla mufflers, and a unique body kit. The rear seats are deleted from the factory, and the exhaust exits from either side, right in front of the rear wheel wells.

This particular Cobra R is the 69th of 300 built for the 2000 model year. It's been driven just 1560 miles since it was built, having lived most of its life in Florida and Tennessee. Judging by the photos, it looks to be in pristine condition, with like-new paint and a virtually untouched interior. Even the underside of the car is spotless.

This Cobra R is currently up for auction on Bring a Trailer with a high bid of $75,000 and six days remaining. Considering the rising desirability of these models and this particular example's low mileage, we wouldn't be surprised to see it sell for over six figures.
