With the 2003 SVT Mustang Cobra Ford raised the bar again, increasing power output to a level never before achieved in a production Mustang.
The 2003 SVT Mustang Cobra's V-8 is equipped with an Eaton Supercharger and new aluminium alloy cylinder heads that provide increased flow capabilities. To provide strength necessary for the substantially increased torque output, the Cobra engine is built on a cast-iron block. This unit contains the carryover forged-steel crankshaft, which is fitted with new Manley forged 'H-beam' connecting rods, forged pistons similar to those in the SVT F-150 Lightning, and an aluminium flywheel similar to the 2000 SVT Mustang Cobra R's.
The SVT Mustang Cobra's independent rear suspension system receives upgraded bushings and an additional tubular cross-brace for 2003, necessary for increased loading due to the higher power output and larger tires. It is equipped with gas-charged monotube Bilstein dampers at all four corners, and the pad material on the rear brakes has been upgraded for enhanced durability and brake performance.
Exterior design changes distinguish the SVT Mustang Cobra from the regular production Mustang GT. While it retains the SVT-signature round fog lamps, the front fascia is more aggressive looking, and also helps to deliver more air to the engine compartment. The hood also has been redesigned, and now has flow-through scoops that help vent hot air from the engine compartment. Both the hood and rear deck are made of lightweight composite materials. Showing that SVT appreciates even the smallest details, the windshield wipers feature an aerodynamic 'wing' to help keep the blades planted at speeds up to 130 mph.
Inside, new front bucket seats are designed to provide enhanced support for both comfortable cruising and spirited driving. Seating surfaces have Nudo leather trim and Preferred suede inserts. The driver's seat has standard six-way power, plus new power-adjustable thigh and side bolsters, and power lumbar support. Switches for these new controls are in an easy-to-reach location on the right-front corner of the seat. The instrument cluster, with titanium-color gauge faces, has been redesigned to include a boost gauge, and features electroluminescent lighting.
Standard features include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather boots for the shift and parking brake levers, tilt steering wheel, power windows, mirrors, door locks and trunk release, the SecuriLock passive anti-theft system, remote keyless entry, speed control and a MACH 460 audio system with AM/FM stereo and an in-dash, six-disc CD player.
