2013 Cobra Jet Mustang

The 2013 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet has arrived. Last week it was announced that the first of these factory-built race cars was picked up from the Automotive Alliance Plant in Flat Rock, Mich. The final destination—Sam Pack Ford in Plano, Texas. Two more were picked up for delivery to Superior Ford and B.F. Evans Ford, on Friday. Ultimately, only 50 Cobra Jet Mustangs will be produced. The rest of the stable is expected to be finished within the next three weeks.

With three seasons of testing, racing, and customer feedback to draw from, Ford has designated the 2013 Cobra Jet Mustang as the best ever with exciting new features, more performance, and the best value on the market.

You may or may not know that the Cobra Jet has a pretty long history. The first was conceived in 1968, where it entered and won the NHRA Winternationals the first time out on the track. 40 years later and the 2008 model picked up another win at the Winternationals—again on its first time out at the strip. 2010 saw another version of the Cobra Jet Mustang, but unlike its predecessors, did not take home a NHRA Winternationals victory. That being said, it did pick up numerous other racing wins, records, and accolades.

The 2013 Cobra Jet touts a number of improvements over the previous versions, including the addition of a naturally-aspirated or supercharged 5.0L Coyote engine. The N/A versions offers CNC ported heads, high lift cams, and a low-drag accessory drive, while the supercharged version sports a Ford Racing/Whipple 10-rib 2.9L blower and CNC port-matched manifold and heads. Other welcomed additions include a lightened body assembly, electric power steering, an optimized roll cage design, Recaro FIA racing seats, a removable steering wheel, starting line RPM control, and improved brake feel and suspension geometry.

You can expect to pay the base price of $85,490 for the N/A model and $92,990 for the Supercharged models. It should be noted that the Cobra Jet is not a street legal car, although it does come with a true VIN number (and some exclusive serialized extras for the collectors).

We expect that fans and naysayers a like will have a chance to see this turn-key race car put to the test very shortly. We are excited to see if the 2013 model lives up to its legacy.
