50th Anniversary Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Aims for the 8s

Ford teases Mustang Cobra Jet - 'mid-8-second' quarter mile

FORD Performance Parts has teased a "roid popping tribute to the original Cobra Jet dragster, which it says will be 'the quickest straight-line Stallion yet".

Ford Performance says the 2018 Cobra Jet will run mid-8s at the strip, crossing the finish topping an astonishing 240km/h. That sounds mighty fast, and credit for that goes to the supercharged 5.2-liter Coyote V8 engine whose specs aren't available yet.

Based on the facelifted 2018 Ford Mustang platform, the purpose-built drag racer is engineered by Ford Performance Parts and is limited to 68 non-VIN production cars. "That, in turn, has inspired generations of Mustang fans to create their own performance machines for the street". Ford's Performance tuned the engine and purpose-built the auto for the racetrack.

Based on the newest Mustang, it uses a supercharged 5.2-litre Coyote V8 and is capable of demolishing a quarter-mile run in the mid eight-second range, with an insane 150 miles per hour trap speed.

'Dance Moms' Abby Lee Miller diagnosed with cancer
Melamed said that the surgery on Miller was essential, as "she was not doing well" and 'her blood pressure was bottoming out. So heartbreaking! Abby Lee Miller has been diagnosed with cancer just one day after undergoing life saving spinal surgery.

Only 68 examples of the 2018 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet will be built and all of them will be painted either Race Red or Oxford White, with unique 50th anniversary badging and the distinct Cobra Jet livery. The new race auto will officially go on sale this summer, at which point we will get more details on the quickest factory-built Ford Mustang ever.

To be clear, the Cobra Jet is a purpose-built drag racer rather than a direct rival to the street-legal Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, which boasts a 9.65-second quarter mile at 140 miles per hour.

It might be slower in a straight line, compared to the 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet, but the devilish Dodge will still have the upper hand for enthusiasts who actually want to drive their cars on the road. She could only confirm a "very limited" number will be sold in Canada.

The result is a turnkey racer that showcases many performance add-ons available from the Ford Performance Parts catalog for Mustang dating back to the original 1968 Cobra Jet.
