Ford revives Cobra Jet Mustang, says it's the quickest pony yet

Ford revives Cobra Jet Mustang, says it's the quickest pony yet Ford revives Cobra Jet Mustang, says it's the quickest pony yet

Welcome, therefore, the achingly fast - and vanishingly rare - 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet, billed as the fastest and most powerful of the factory-produced cars in their five decades of existence.

Mustang fans will no doubt have heard of the Cobra Jet designation, but here's a refresher. Ford says this new Cobra Jet should post mid-eight-second quarter-mile times running at over 150 miles per hour.

Like the other Cobra Jet Mustangs, the 2018 model is not street legal and it does not come with the VIN needed to register it for road use anywhere in the USA. All of these cars are created to run in the 8-second range in stock form (with tuning work from the owners, of course), but they are all extremely limited in terms of production numbers and none of them are legal for road use.

Ford says out of the 68 Mustang Cobra Jets it will make, all will be non-VIN production cars, meaning it will be impossible to register them either in the USA or Down Under.

NextEra Energy, Inc. (NEE), Humana Inc. (HUM)
Oak Associates Ltd who had been investing in Kla for a number of months, seems to be bullish on the $16.93B market cap company. It increased, as 36 investors sold NEE shares while 405 reduced holdings. 112 funds amassed stakes and 347 increased stakes.

It took more than just a beefy engine to do that, of course. The purpose-built drag racer features a supercharged 5.2-liter Coyote V8, unique four-link rear suspension, and a 9-inch solid rear axle from Strange Engineering.

Confirming it will build just 68 cars, in either red or white, each of the 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet will come with commemorative 50th anniversary plaques that pay tribute to the 1968 originals. A NHRA-certified roll cage, Racetech FIA seats, and a drag race-specific coil-over suspension with specially designed Weld Racing wheels with 50th anniversary badging have also been added. Don't get any ideas about making it a daily driver, however.

Notably, Ford also won't tell us what transmission the Cobra Jet will use, but it's likely a burly automatic with a trans-brake for drag racing.

Like previous Cobra Jets, the 2018 model has been created to be legal for National Hot Rod Association drag racing, along with several National Mustang Racers Association and National Muscle Car Association classes.
