The 2000 Mustang was mostly a carryover from 1999. Small changes included rear child seat anchor brackets, a glow in the dark interior trunk release, and a new gold exterior paint. The Ford Special Vehicle Team only produced 300 SVT Cobras in 2000 but they were designated as an "R" series which included performance and appearance upgrades as well as a special hand built and assembled engine. Even with fewer SVT Cobras built, 215,239 Mustangs were sold in 2000, this was the best year since 1986.
