Back in June it was announced that the very first 2013 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet had left the Automotive Alliance Plant in Flat Rock, Mich. The official American Drag Racing League Youtube page posted the video of the 6 sec 8th mile pass today while stating:
“Straight from the show room floor, delivered to the track with plastic still on the seats, ride along in the first 2013 Ford Cobra Jet to take a trip down the drag strip.
While the Ford Motor Company has dominated the American Drag Racing League’s spectacular new SuperCar Showdown category, fans who attended the ADRL Summer Drags VIII on July 13-14 were in for a thrilling surprise. The event, contested at U.S. 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Michigan, was the site of the first public competition appearance of the radical new 2013 Mustang Super Cobra Jet.”
Pretty good time slip for a “factory” built car. None the less, we think it sounds awesome and looks decent, minus those rather large Cobra graphics….
