Ford celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Mustang Cobra Jet model with a special special version, which, unfortunately, many people on the public roads can hardly be seen.

Mustang Cobra Jet 50th Anniversary is a real car that is homologated to participate in drag racing by the American Hot Rod Association (NHRA). Ford claims that the car is able to cover a distance of ¼ mile in eight and a half seconds, accelerating during this time to 241 kilometers per hour.

Under the hood, the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet has a 5.2-liter Coyote compressor volume of 5.2 liters. Its power is not disclosed, but the previous 2008 Mustang Cobra Jet, which was presented in honor of the 40th anniversary of the model, had a payback of around 900 horsepower and traveled ¼ mile in 8.9 seconds, although the old Cobra motor had more power – 5,4 liters. As for the powertrain, then Ford also keeps silent about it. It is likely that all this power will be transmitted specially tuned for these races three-speed automatic transmission.

From the standard Mustang, this car is not only different from the engine and the box: the drag Cobra has received an updated four-link rear suspension, as well as the Strange Engineering racing bridge. In the car there is a safety cage, and homologated FIA racing seats with seat belts. However, from drag racing Cobra 2016 model year, in this respect, there are no differences.

In all, 68 such cars will be produced, which, by the way, can not legally move along the public roads on their own way: their bodies simply will not have VIN-numbers.

The cost of the model Ford has not yet disclosed, but according to foreign colleagues, the price will be at the level of $ 100,000.
