Along with the COPO Camaro, the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet is one of the two duality cup cars of CSR2 season 97.
The real Mustang
To be honest, it is – as Ford says – the fastest production Mustang that has ever decorated a drag strip. On the quarter mile it should reach 150 mph (i.e. 241 km/h). The time for the 400 meters is supposed to be in the middle eight-second range. Ford’s special Mustang is everything but street legal. And on top of that it is extremely rare, because Ford will only build 68 of them. For 130,000 US dollars (about 114,000 euros) per car.
In return the few lucky customers get a 50th anniversary edition, because the original Ford Mustang Cobra Jet was built in 1968 by Ford dealers and racing drivers. Bob Tasca introduced. And now you also know why it is limited to 68 pieces.
To make the Cobra Jet as fast as it is, Ford is fitting a “special” version of the 5.0-litre Coyote V8 with more displacement (5.2 litres) and a massive Whipple supercharger. This brings it up to a generous 3.0 litres, which is a more than decent trump. Ford is silent like a grave about further engine details and unfortunately also about performance.
The 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet is a limited-edition turnkey race car that honors the 50th anniversary of the original that dominated drag strips in 1968.
The CSR2 Mustang
The standard version of the Mustang can fit 128 Fusion parts, so far nothing special. The yellow star Cobra Jet should run 6.943s.
