2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Roush Sells For $25K

High-performance, low production Mustangs that make heads turn in appreciation (or envy) generally end up becoming highly sought after vehicles. That’s especially true for the 2003 and 2004 Mustang SVT Cobra. With a fully independent rear suspension, a six-speed manual transmission, and a supercharged 4.6L V8 rated at 390 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque, these rare ponies are as capable as they are fun. The 2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra is a perfect example of such a model, which recently sold for a respectable sum.

There are two big reasons why this particular 2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra stands out. For starters, it’s a one-owner vehicle that’s in mint condition. And it also happens to have only 8,000 miles on the clock.

To make matters even more intriguing, this model was enhanced by Roush Performance. Any Mustang fan will knows full well that Ford and Roush go together like peanut butter and jelly, and that’s still the case in 2020.

In this case of this pony, Roush outfitted it with a new front fascia, side skirts, rear valence, and wing. There’s also a high-performance side exhaust system with stainless steel exhaust tips.

And if that’s not enough, the owner also gave the 2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra’s engine several modifications upgrades throughout the years. The Mustang now comes equipped with a 2.8-inch Eaton blower, Kenne Bell cold air intake, and several other upgrades.

And that’s not all. This Stang also spent some time at Kenny Brown Performance of Indianapolis, Indiana, where it received some quality components, including competition control arms, a Steeda “Stop the Hop” kit, Bilstein coilovers, and a front bump steer kit.

All of these additions make the 2003 Mustang SVT Cobra a truly one-of-a-kind vehicle. Fortunately, the owner didn’t neglect the rest of the car either. The factory Redfire metallic paint and Dark Charcoal and Graphite leather interior look flawless, and the car appears to be completely rust free, despite residing in Ohio for its entire life.

All of those fine attributes resulted in this Mustang selling for $25,250 on Bring A Trailer in the beginning of November. The sticker for this SVT Cobra reads $35k, but that’s before the Roush kit and subsequent upgrades, so we’re not sure who – the original owner or the new buyer – fared better. No matter, we’re certain that the new owner will enjoy this gorgeous pony for many years and miles to come.

    It’s hard to believe the Terminator Cobra is 17 years old as time go by the price will only raise. Am the proud owner of a 29k Mystic Convertible

    Sounds like a bargain basement selling price for such a unique Mustang!

  4. 03 Cobra 96 Tangerine BOSS

    25k is a wholesale price for this car. The drivetrain is worth 20k by itself. The seller should have sold on a better site, he left money on the table for sure…

  5. Roy Chile’s

    A 03-04 Terminator with 8k and Roush upgrades is worth about $35K- $40k not many where built

    Mr. Snitkoff dropped the ball on his research for this article. This car did not sell for $25K. It was listed on BaT and was bid to $25,250. Reserve was not met.

    This is not a real roush. That kit doesn’t line up with the body lines at all. This is a cobra someone tried to make look like a roush. Replicas of paperwork and all stickers can be purchased online.
