Was the 2013 Shelby 1000 S/C a little to expensive for your tastes? How about the 2014 Mustang Cobra Jet, then, priced at about $98,000? OK, so we’re splitting costly golden hairs here, but either one of these pony cars are simply some of the most amazing ones to date.
The 2014 Cobra Jet, powered by the 2.9-liter Whipple-charged 5.0-liter V8, rolling with a full racing suspension & interior, and the ability to scream down the 1320′ straight “out of the box” without modification.
How’s this one sound for you? Got the money for it? OK, so even if you do, you had better get your name penciled in quickly…there are only going to be 50 of these produced by Ford Racing. Keep reading the PR from Ford to see just what else is in store for this drag racing monster of a Mustang.
