Ford Performance is developing an all-new 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet to mark the 50th anniversary of the purpose-built drag racer.
The 2018 Cobra Jet will be developed on the 2018 Mustang platform and limited to only 68 non-VIN production vehicles, each packing a supercharged 5.2-liter Coyote V8, unique four-link rear suspension, 9-inch solid rear axle from Strange Engineering and race add-ons including NHRA-certified roll cage, Racetech FIA seats and a drag race-specific coil-over suspension with specially designed Weld Racing wheels with 50th anniversary badging.
This drag racer will be the most powerful and quickest version from the factory ever, capable of mid-8-seconds in the quarter-mile while topping 150 mph. It’s designed to be legal for National Hot Rod Association drag racing, along with several National Mustang Racers Association and National Muscle Car Association classes.
See the 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet press release for more details and check back this summer when Ford will be releasing final ordering and production info/specifications.
