  • The Americans have created a heavy duty version of the Mustang

Ford's 50th anniversary edition of its Mustang Cobra Jet drag racer - billed at the automaker's fastest, most powerful racing Mustang yet - will be priced at $130,000 when it goes on sale next year.

Ford Performance Engineering Manager Dave Born says a lot of the features on the Cobra Jet are particularly exciting to him, from the 3.0-litre Whipple supercharger mounted to the 5.2-litre engine, down to the low-resistance brakes and improved dampers.

Limited to only 68 units in honor of its inaugural year, the 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet is said to deliver 8-second quarter-mile e.t.'s at over 150 miles per hour.

Besides the unique engine, the Cobra Jet has two-way coil-over shocks, an adjustable ride height and a solid 9-inch rear end. The new Cobra Jet made its public debut in Detroit during the popular Woodward Dream Cruise.

Ford Performance has revealed the quickest drag racing Mustang ever, capable of covering a quarter-mile in the mid-eight-second range. "This has inspired generations of Mustang fans to create their own performance machines for the street". The model is now available to order and pricing starts at $130,000.

The new Mustang Cobra Jet is available in either Race Red or Oxford White and can be optioned with the throwback 50th Anniversary decals seen here, because why not? With no VIN numbers, the fifty 2008 Mustang Cobra Jet M-FR500-CJ cars produced weren't actually road legal. Oh, and there's also an NHRA-certified safety roll cage and seats incase all that turns out to not be enough.

Fifty years ago Ford struck out at the NHRA Super Stock competition with its prepped Mustang Cobra Jet racer.

After its display at Mustang Alley as part of the Woodward Dream Cruise, the 50th Anniversary Mustang Cobra Jet will travel the following weekend to Norwalk, Ohio, for the 50th Anniversary Ford Performance Cobra Jet Reunion at Summit Motorsports Park - the largest gathering of Cobra Jets in history. More than 150 vehicles dating back to 1968 are expected to attend.
