Ford Mustang Cobra Jet will be the most powerful version yet

Ford Mustang Cobra Jet will be the most powerful version yet

Ford has released a teaser image for the Mustang Cobra Jet, celebrating the original Cobra Jet drag auto that first took to staging lanes 50 years ago.

Production of the new Cobra Jet Mustang has already started in MI at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, while deliveries are expected in the first quarter of 2016. The brand claims the new Cobra Jet will be the fastest vehicle in a straight line with a stallion badge on it, tackling the quarter-mile in eight seconds at 150 miles per hour. Like its predecessors, the 2018 Cobra Jet pays tribute to the 1968 Cobra Jet drag racer, a vehicle that wiped the floor with its competition at the 1968 NHRA Winternationals.

Production will be limited to 86 non-VIN cars, each powered by a 5.2-liter supercharged V8. All of these cars are created to run in the 8-second range in stock form (with tuning work from the owners, of course), but they are all extremely limited in terms of production numbers and none of them are legal for road use. Ford is coy about the power output, but given the weight of the vehicle and the speeds it can achieve, we can safely assume that it has more than 800 horsepower under that lightweight hood. It'll keep going, too, to over 150 miles per hour.

And since this is a commemorative nostalgia machine and turnkey racer, it'll come with a four-link suspension, 9-inch solid rear axle, NHRA-ready roll cage, drag racing coil-over suspension and plenty of 50th anniversary badging, so everyone knows what you bought.

The inception of Ford's Cobra Jet Mustang program dates back to 1968, though in modern times, we've seen 50-car runs in 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2014.

It's not every day people get to choose how well their factory-built Hot Rod Association-legal looks, is it? Owners will be able to use the vehicle 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 auto Association classes.

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.
