Ford Mustang Cobra Jet revealed

Ford Mustang Cobra Jet revealed

The 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet is a limited-edition turnkey race auto that honors the 50th anniversary of the original that dominated drag strips in 1968.

Power is provided by a unique 5.2-liter V8 engine which is based on the familiar 5.0-liter V8 that resides in the Mustang GT. It should deliver a quarter-mile ET in the 8.0-second bracket while topping 150 miles per hour in the Cobra Jet. To handle all the power that blown V8 makes, Ford fits the drag racer with a 9-inch solid rear axle and two-way coil-over shocks with adjustable ride height. In true drag racing form, Ford won't reveal exactly how much horsepower it has, but does say the Cobra Jet can run an 8-second quarter-mile at 150 miles per hour.

"From the very first Mustang Cobra Jets dominating the 1968 NHRA Winternationals to our modern-day racers, the Ford Performance Parts team continues to build on Cobra Jet's success at the track over five decades", said Eric Cin, global director, Ford Performance Parts.

The auto was unveiled Thursday in the Detroit suburb of Royal Oak as part of the lead-up to this weekend's anuual Woodward Dream Cruise. Inside, you get FIA-certified seats and a NHRA-certified roll cage for safety. It's also important to note that the production is limited to just 68 cars, in honor of Cobra Jet's 1968 debut.

They also bolstered their roster with the free agency acquisitions of the likes of receiver Jarvis Landry and running back Carlos Hyde.

You may well question the relevance of such an offering but Ford certainly doesn't, seeing it as the continuation of a lineage which inspires customers to purchase and modify some Mustang muscle of their own.

The new Mustang Cobra Jet is only available in Race Red or Oxford White and can be outfitted with exclusive 50th Anniversary graphics and badging. Or maybe it's just all the unburned hydrocarbons hovering around M-1 between Ferndale and Pontiac, Michigan, that has us reminiscing over the Cobra Jet name.

With the Woodward Dream Cruise's weekend of honoring all things automotive in full swing, Ford debuted its 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet, which it teased this past April.

Perhaps as a coping mechanism for such worthiness, we're also going through some kind of fuel-gargling muscle vehicle revolution, with a new special edition of one of the big three - Camaro, Challenger, Mustang - revealed on what feels like a daily basis.
