In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Mustang Cobra Jet, Ford Performance unveiled its new limited production, drag racing special Cobra Jet at the Woodward Dream Cruise, last week in Detroit. Ford described it as the fastest production Mustang on the drag strip, capable of quarter-mile times in the mid-eight-second range trapping at 150 mph. Fueling this new machine down the track is Aeromotive’s Pro Series Fuel pump.
While horsepower figures have not been released yet, the company says it comes with a bored-out 5.2-liter version of Ford’s Coyote V-8 and a 3.0 liter Whipple supercharger. Additional features include a nine-inch solid rear axle, height-adjustable coilovers, an NHRA-certified roll cage and FI-certified racing seats. Only 68 of the commemorative Cobra Jets will be built with a choice of two color options: Race Red or Oxford White. The price is set at $130,000.
Steve Matusek, Aeromotive president, said, “As a company, we are intrinsically involved in the drag-racing market and consistently use the track for serious product testing. To be chosen by Ford to provide a high-performance fuel system for the 50th anniversary drag racing special Mustang Cobra Jet is a terrific honor and a testament to our reputation for quality.”
