Opportunity to purchase a rare New Edge Mustang Cobra race car  (we believe its the only one in Europe). The car was built professionally for Mark Ackley and Todd Snijder to race in Motorola Cup, scoring outright victories at Watkins Glen and Sebring in 1999 . It was then raced in the Grand Am series with a 5.0 engine (and uprated transmission and drive train to cope with the additional power) until 2003 by the same drivers before being retired and used for promotional/display purposes until offerd for sale in 2018. The uprated heavy duty T56 Tremec and drivetrain is still in place but the original Cobra 4.6 has been refitted. This means the car can receive a 5.0 engine swap at any time without any other parts required.

Tracktimesolutions purchased and imported the car from the USA earlier this year and after extensive professional recommissioning its now ready to race again. masses of photos and detail of work undertaken available.

RRR Engineering removed all the chassis and engine wiring, switches and built new motorsport looms front to back. They then installed the following new Ecumaster parts:

EMU Black ECU, ADU5 Dash Display, Canbus Battery Isolator, GPS Module, 8 switch keypad, new sensors throughout, and steering wheel switchgear/buttons operating traction control, pit lane speedlimiter, wipers, rainlight etc etc.

RRR Engineering also installed a new Shelby twin port fly by wire throttle body and mapped the car on their hub dyno. The engine is otherwise a standard spec  4.6 V8 32 valve DOHC Cobra engine. The Ford Competition Department engine builders hand built the unit and their signatures are on the rocker cover.

All the fuel lines, rollover valve and fittings from the Fuel Safe dry break endurance fuel cell to engine and back have all been replaced and a new lift pump and swirl pot installed. New front discs andFerodo DSUNO pads. The dry break has been replaced for ease of use with an aero flush fitting fuel cap. New polycarb door windows have been added. 

Other 2020 new parts: Sparco Evo L seat, OMP Black electric fire ext.  and LED Rainlight. Seat belts in date until 2023.

Suspension: Coil springs(adjustable platform) and 2 way adjustable Koni shocks. Front and rear ARBs. Adjustable caster/camber plates.  3 x  18"wheel sets in total. Hoosier slicks and wets,  Pirelli Trofeo List 1b  and Uniroyal Rainsport(new)all come with the car, together with various replacement body panels.

Thousands of pounds have been spent this year to prepare this car for a customer to race it with the Classic Sports Car Club CSCC Modern Classics where we think it fits perfectly. With the customers change of circumstances the car is now surplus to our requirements for 2021. The car now weighs 1344 kilos and produces a lazy unstressed 321 bhp at the flywheel currently which makes it the perfect power to weight to run in the 750 Club Enduro Championship. It also runs the optimum 18 x 10 rims allowed in Club Enduro. The car was built for endurance races and should prove an extremely reliable and cheap car to race. If the new owner wants to run more power theres loads of stuff on the tuning market for these engines.

We tested the car at Donington Park last week (see link to short in car video below). The car is absolutely race ready for its new owner. This is a unique race car which will only appreciate in value and is now being offered for genuine reasons at a fraction of the original build and recommissioning costs.
