Superformance MKIII-R

The Superformance MKIII-R brings perfection to another level

This special edition MKIII-R is delivered standard with everything the Superformance MKIII offers plus custom Cobra embroidered seats, larger Wilwood brakes, custom high capacity sway bars, lighter flywheel, pressure-plate and racing clutch assembly, custom 18" American-Racing wheels, and an upgraded drivetrain to handle the extra power.

Every car comes meticulously hand-crafted and finished from state of the art deep coat paint to hand-stiched leather embroidered seats. Bilstein dampers and H&R Springs come standard as well as a four-point racing harness. Every corner of the MKIII-R oozes a nostalgic high performance experience thanks to the hardwork Roush commited to this rolling legend.

Roush engineers went over every aspect of the original MKIII pushing the big engine in a little car attitude of Carroll Shelby to the limits. Contact a dealer near you to go over the options available for this premier licensed continuation model of the race winning Cobra.
