2018 Cobra Jet

https://media.ford.com/content/fordm...niversary.html




2018 MUSTANG COBRA JET CELEBRATES 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF RACING LEGEND WITH QUICKEST STRAIGHT-LINE STALLION YET
  • New 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet by Ford Performance is targeted to be the most powerful and quickest version from the factory ever, capable of running the quarter-mile in the mid-8-second range while topping 150 mph
  • 50th anniversary Mustang Cobra Jet features a limited production run of 68 cars available in Race Red or Oxford White
  • 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet is powered by a supercharged 5.2-liter Coyote V8, with performance tuned by Ford Performance to give racers a proven, durable powertrain
DEARBORN, Mich., April 18, 2018 – Fifty years ago, the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet took to the staging lanes at drag strips everywhere – and along with the resulting wins, a legend was born. Now comes the return of the Mustang Cobra Jet drag strip race car by Ford Performance – targeted to be the most powerful and quickest version from the factory yet, capable of running the quarter-mile in the mid-8-second range while topping 150 mph.

“From the very first Mustang Cobra Jets dominating the 1968 NHRA Winternationals to our modern-day Cobra Jet racers, the Ford Performance Parts team continues to build the Cobra Jet brand based on its success at the track over five decades,” said Eric Cin, global director, Ford Performance Parts. “That, in turn, has inspired generations of Mustang fans to create their own performance machines for the street.”

Engineered by Ford Performance Parts, the purpose-built drag racer developed on the 2018 Ford Mustang platform is limited to 68 non-VIN production cars. It includes a supercharged 5.2-liter Coyote V8 and unique four-link rear suspension, along with a Ford 9-inch solid rear axle from Strange Engineering. Race add-ons include 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.

The result is a turnkey racer that showcases many performance add-ons available from the Ford Performance Parts catalog for Mustang dating back to the original 1968 Cobra Jet. Offered in either Race Red or Oxford White, the 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet features an available commemorative 50th anniversary graphics package and anniversary badging.

Final 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet ordering and product specifications will be released this summer. The car is designed to be legal for National Hot Rod Association drag racing, along with several National Mustang Racers Association and National Muscle Car Association classes.

Thumbs up

Fantastic.....just in time to celebrate 50 years of Cobra Jets

I had the pleasure of seeing these beasts at the Cobra Jet Showdown a few years back. They are just awesome to watch!

Question

Any news on new crate motors?
Has the 5.2XS been changed to use the newest 5.2 block?

Considering prior year Cobra Jets were in excess of $99k, it would not surprise me if the 2018 was in excess of $150k, fully loaded with every Ford Performance goody available from the factory.

The modern day Cobra Jet is going to be the “classic” collectible in years to come - because they truly are LIMITED not only from a production sense, but also limited as to who can buy them and they’re not for public street use. Think of these as the equivalent to the original BOSS 429; very limited production run and B9 survivors are worth upwards of $400K-$700k, depending on the color and KK production number. These Cobra Jets will be far more valuable than any modern Shelby.

If I had the cashola:
Purchase a factory base GT, purchase a Cobra Jet - put the Cobra Jet drivetrain into the GT and wa-la, instant street legal Cobra Jet... keep the Cobra Jet body in storage for 50 years... LOL

68 cars, who cares? Build 1k IRS cars and you'll have my attention.

We need a street version of this car!
What we don't need is another road course car.
We need a Demon slayer, We need this!

That’s pretty damn cool.

This also brings hope for a 2019 Mach I 50-year anniversary car, which is even cooler
