The Ford Mustang Cobra RA will step up from the GT Performance to the Nations Cup catagory next year.
After a season of trying to slow the car back to the GTP field, PROCAR personnel have decided to reverse their logic.
The Mustang will have a similar power and performance package of the Viper, with the same gearbox, brakes and wheels.
The car's current engine will be up-specked to produce around 320kw at the rear wheels. :s6:
A six-speed Holinger sequential gearbox, a new rear end - more than likely designed and built by Ron Harrop - 18x10 inch front and 18x12 inch rear wheels and a better brake packge will be homologated.

I heard this Monaro will have around 700hp (from a bigger chev V8) a sequential gearbox, lightweight body etc. I wonder if there will be anthing on the car that is actually Holden.

Mustang Vs Ferarri, Dodge, Porsche and Lambo's...now we're asking for it!

All we need now is a TS50 to take up the battle with the GTS in the production class.

For the Mustang to get 320kW at the rear wheels I expect PHR to basically build a 5.4 DOHC V8 just like the real Cobra R.
If not they can import the real deal.
Stroke it to 5.8 and it'll be the stuff of dreams.

damn ay. That's good but bad. Yeah id say they would have to use the 5.4 but maybe we can then get a production version of that mustang with the detuned engine whcih can also be shared with the GTHO!! Still I loveed the cobra RA. It looked absolutely sweet. They would have to sell the cobra RA though becasue they have allready made them. Iv'e got pics ill try and find and post soon.

When is there a Holden that is actually holden? I beleive that the monaro will use a 400kw 6.8L callaway enhanced V8.
This topic was discussed about 2 months ago. I can only see it fare we use the 410kw 7litre saleen V8 from the s7 and put that into the mustang.

Also I was wondering is there any restrictions for nations cup? I know the viper lambo ferrari porsche ect race in it but like this monaro and mustang where will it be equall? We can work the balls of them to kill all the other cars there but then you could work a viper to kill another car ect.

Mustang Cobra RA pics

They would have to still sell this. They HAVE made them as you can see in the pics and they might even make a few bucks off them aswell.

WOW!!.. Man that looks horny. Any details on $$$ as yet?
They had a bit about this Mustang in the Herald sun Car bit about 2 months ago. I was trying to keep it but some moron tufred it out (probably myself). They said all 25 examples are beeing finalised and will soon be ready to be sent to various FTE dealerships around Australia. They said don't expect it to be sold for less than 100K and it could be anything upto 120k.

Looks awesome but i havnt seen any at FTE delearships yet. Heck i havnt even seen a new T3 at an FTE delearship in Melb yet? Are there any specs on this car yet? Will there only need to be 25 built for it to quilify and will they deffinatlly be sold at FTE? Hopfully if they are a sucess it will encourage Tickford to finetune a few regular Cobras or even import some terminators.
