Ford Racing stretches the 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet

Well, that didn’t take long…just a couple of months after announcing the 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet would get a few updates, Ford Racing has already put a test on paper with a development prototype at the South Georgia Motorsports Park in Adel, GA.  Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords magazine and Ford Racing engineers were on-hand to take the 2014 Cobra Jet down the strip to help collect direct and subjective data to help bolster the track talent of this quarter mile monster of a 2014 Mustang.

A few noteworthy, although not earth-shattering, changes from the 2013 Cobra Jet include: a lighter body, electric power steering, an updated roll cage, enhanced Recaro FIA racing seats, improved suspension geometry, and a parachute mount.  Additionally, the 2014 Cobra Jet will get two new hues for views: Gotta Have It Green as well as a Matte black.

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.

Twin Turbo 5.0 Coyote Ford Mustang Cobra Jet – SEMA

The 2012 SEMA show in Las Vegas at full throttle today, and Ford has come out guns blazing, with their show-stopping Mustang Cobra Jet concept.  Based upon the 2013 Mustang Cobra Jet, this one-of-a-kind race car is 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 beast.  The technology behind this monstrous concept?  You guessed it–EcoBoost…the very sort similar to the tech found beneath the hood of the Focus ST.

Big deal, right?  We’ve seen boosted Ford Mustang variations time and again, but now, this twin-turbo Mustang Cobra Jet concept leads and leans strongly to us seeing a production forced-induction (say that 3 times, fast) Ford Mustang soon, based upon this EcoBoost tech.  Had enough talk?  Thought so–we have, too, so check out the video we have in store for you!

2010 Cobra Jet Ford Mustang

Back in early September, we showed you a video of the 2010 Cobra Jet Ford Mustang making some passes for a test ‘n tune at the Milan Dragway.  During the early hours of the 2009 SEMA show this week in Las Vegas, Ford Racing pulled the coverings off the car and made its debut a kosher occurrence.  A mere 50 units are going to be produced by [the profitable] Ford Motor Company, so the scramble to get a hold of one of these 2010 CJ Mustang specimens will certainly thin out those with slow reaction times.  What’s so great about this car?  It’s a total turnkey racer straight from the Ford Racing catalog; it is equipped with a 5.4-liter V8 & a 3.4-liter Whipple supercharger; it is yet another capstone on the fortress of a legendary Ford Racing past.  Take a closer look at this winner of a drag-car and check out the full story in the Ford Press Release as well.
