SVT Mustang Cobra R Springs Back to Virtual Life As German “Terminator” Wagon

True Blue Oval high-performance aficionados haven’t forgotten about the good old days of the Special Vehicle Team division. And it seems that even General Motors fans have a little bit of respect for their wonders.

Of course, since we are dealing with a virtual artist, it’s not hard to imagine that whatever they plan will also come with a twist... or two. Given that we are dealing with Jim, the pixel master behind the jlord8 account, it’s not hard to remember that he loves the 80s and 90s classics more than anything else. He’s also the proud owner of a G-body in real life, though he sometimes slips down the path of modern affairs.

Usually, though, the CGI expert does hide the contemporary lines or technical wonders behind something vintage. This time around, though, he’s a bit more in our face than traditionally. After all, we are dealing here with a 2000 Ford SVT Mustang Cobra R... that morphed into a practical “Terminator” station wagon using the backbones of the most recent Audi RS 6 Avant!

Obviously, this quick render isn’t as polished as other works from his virtual gallery, as he simply attached the 2000 SVT Mustang Cobra R’s front clip and cool wheels to the body of the RS 6 Avant. Still, even though we really would have loved to also see the bulging hood, it’s enough to hold the illusion that a Cobra R somehow sprung back into action to live a decidedly practical high-performance station wagon life.

Now, if only we could settle the conundrum of what’s hiding underneath the hood. Is it the Cobra R’s 385 hp 5.4-liter V8? Or did it get swapped to the slightly newer and supercharged 4.6-liter V8 as hinted by the “Terminator Wagon” nickname? Then again, maybe we’ll go for the outrageous choice and imagine Audi’s 600 ps/592 hp 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 just stayed in place, along with all the quattro goodies...
