Ford Mustang Cobra Jet will be the most powerful version yet

Ford Mustang Cobra Jet will be the most powerful version yet”

Owners will be able to use the auto at National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) drag racing events, with the new Cobra Jet also eligible for several National Mustang Racers Association and National Muscle vehicle Association classes. And that, of course, includes the drag strip.

Ford says the engine will make the new Cobra Jet the most powerful yet. And with it, it's released the first salient details of what promises to be one heck of a straight-line performer. The purpose-built drag racer features a supercharged 5.2-liter Coyote V8, unique four-link rear suspension, and a 9-inch solid rear axle from Strange Engineering.

The modern Cobra Jet promises to run the quarter mile in the "mid-8-second" range at 150 miles per hour. That's a heck of a lot faster than the Dodge Challenger Demon, which will run in 9.65 seconds and hit 140 miles per hour. But then the Demon is road-legal, and not allowed by the NHRA, while the Cobra Jet will be just the opposite.

Like previous Cobra Jets, the 2018 model has been created to be legal for National Hot Rod Association drag racing, along with several National Mustang Racers Association and National Muscle Car Association classes. The 68 cars will be available in Race Red or Oxford White, with available commemorative 50th-anniversary graphics package and anniversary badging - including on the wheels.

Order books open this summer, and while pricing hasn't been announced we expect the starting price to lie close to the $100k figure of the previous model.
