1994 SVT Mustang Cobra

With the debut of a redesigned Mustang for 1994, SVT applied its unique blend of performance, substance, exclusivity and value to the SN-95 platform and introduced a new, more potent Cobra. The restyled Mustang body sported a more sculpted look that interpreted classic Mustang design cues. The interior was also revamped, featuring a driver-oriented twin-cockpit design and white-faced gauges. The 1994 Cobra’s 5.0-liter V-8 delivered 25 more horsepower than the mainstream Mustang GT, thanks to modifications to the cylinder heads, roller rockers, valve springs and upper intake manifold to increase the engines’ breathing ability. Other performance enhancements were made to improve handling, ride and braking, including the addition of 17x9-inch wheels and 13-inch front disc brakes. Later in 1994, the first SVT Mustang Cobra Convertible was offered. Available only in red, it was selected as the Official Pace Car for the 1994 Indianapolis 500.
