Offered for sale here is my 2001 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Coupe in stunning Laser Red with only 63,580 miles! Garage kept, adult driven, high performance occasional use vehicle only driven April - October, that I have owned since new. She's never seen snow or rain (only wet when I washed it). New BFG gForce-II KDW tires (3,000 miles) and brakes within the past year. The "flame tread" tires looks great on the 5-spoke polished aluminum Cobra wheels.
Ordered new on December 20, 2000 from McCarville Ford (Centereach, NY); delivered April 22, 2001. No accidents, scrapes, or damage of any kind - ever! No rust, paint fade, or signs of her age. Looks new, every component works perfectly, and runs efficiently; still gets 20-22mpg. Oil changes at 500, 2,500, and every 2,500 miles religiously. Of course I don't smoke and neither did anyone else near this car. None of my passengers were ever permitted to eat or drink in this car. No one ever sat in the back seats!
With it's powerful 4.6l DOHC all aluminum, hand assembled V8 engine making 320bhp in this 3,400lbs coupe, magazine reported 5.4 second 0-60 times are easily attainable. "Torque-y" high-reving naturally aspirated V8 is light and nimble (read: fast!). The Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) plants the rear tires for exceptional traction (aided by the sticky BFGs). The short-throw shifter offers a lightning fast path thru the 5-speed gear box. Steering is precise and neutral with excellent road feel. But the beauty of this car is its balance: performance, efficiency, and comfort in a sharp yet subtle package. This is a genuine 150-mph capable vehicle, equally fit for commuting, road trips, road racing, or just having fun.
Referred to as my "date car" by my ex-wife, in the 12.5 years since I took delivery, I put 4 - 5,000 miles a year on this car in truly occasional use. It has been entered in and won numerous local car shows over the past 8 years as a bone-stock example of the highest performance 4th generation Mustang. An avid Mustang collector, MCA board member and judge, this is the car I liked to drive best. Selling because my garage has a finite capacity and my latest acquisition claimed her spot (see photos).
