  • [NEWS] Fastest Mustang Ever: Mustang Cobra Jet

    The Ford Mustang is not exactly a slow car, now is it? Whether it's the EcoBoost or the full-on V8 GT, Mustangs are good enough to give the snob Europeans a run for their money. But what if you want a track-only Mustang that goes faster than any other Mustang? Well, the Cobra Jet is for you.

    This track-only beast is made by Ford, and by track-only, we mean drag strip. This car pays homage to the original Cobra Jet which debuted at NHRA Winternationals in 1968. This one is limited to just 68 units, and while speed is limited to just 150mph, the Cobra Jet is capable of doing the all-important 1/4-mile somewhere in the middle-range of the eight second mark.

    This is possible with a5.2L version of Ford's 5.0L V8 under the bonnet, with the help of a re-engineered 3.0L Whipple supercharger. Ford have used a 9-inch solid rear axle, two-way coil-over shocks with adjustable ride height and a low-drag disc brake system, four-link rear suspension with antiroll and panhard bars.

    Ford will fit an NHRA-certified safety roll cage, FIA-certified seats and racing wheels with an anniversary badge. Other options you can have include Race Red or Oxford White paint, and exclusive 50th Anniversary graphics and badging.

    Interested? Well sticker price is $130,000, and since this is a track-only car, you might be able to skip on the expensive road taxes. Fancy demolishing everyone on the Sentul drag strip?
