Here is what we have said about MKIII-R in the past:
“Superformance has made a name for itself with its faithful replicas of various sports cars of the 60’sMost notably Shelby Cobra. It even has A license agreement with Shelby. But its latest creation, the MKIII-R, has deviated from the formula by mixing classic roadstar with modern design signals and aerodynamics.
“The design may be controversial among Cobra fans, but we find it fairly sharp, if there’s a slight blur in the stain. The main body changes include a deep front splitter and a real diffuser on the rear bumper. There are large air vents, although we are not so sure about the strings that fit inside the fender vent. But if you are not in them, you can leave them.
“In reality buyers will be able to customize something about their MKIII-Rs. It can be ordered anywhere Color Combination with any type of finish for trim. So you are not limited to blue with dark gray stripes and trim on the top car. The interior is standard with a top-stitched leather seat with dual stitching in color-coded thread. The center console also comes wrapped in leather and the upholstery material can be customized to suit your heart’s content.
“Under the skin, the Superformance MKIII-R uses the same square-tube-frame chassis you’ll find on other MKIII roadstars. It has an independent rear suspension with unequal-length upper and lower control arms and coil springs with bilstein shock. And four-piston sits on the front disc Break And single-piston rear disc brakes ready to stop the car. Six-piston front calipers are available as an alternative. In the case of engines and transmissions, you need to purchase and install them yourself, as the car comes as a fully assembled rolling chassis without those parts. It is designed to receive a Ford-based V8 with a 5-speed Tremac transmission or a four-speed “top-loader”. Ford Infection. The blue example above uses a Roush 427-ci V8 that produces a five-speed manual with 510 horsepower and 515 pound-feet of torque. It weighs more than 2,400 pounds. Other rush engines recommended by Superformance can produce 560 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque. Of course, the only limitation of your wallet and / or skills when using a powertrain.
“Superformance MKIII-R is not cheap though. The rolling chassis, which is assembled, painted and ready for engine and transmission, starts at $ 79,900. It has no options such as the brakes mentioned above, push-button start, stereo, air conditioner or even a soft top. But you won’t see many of these modernized cobras, since Superformance will only produce 20 of them each year. “
