New Ford Racing Mustang FR500CJ Cobra Jet…

October 8, 2008

Ooooh yeah!!! Say hello to the new boss of factory drag cars – the Ford Racing Mustang FR500CJ Cobra Jet!

Powered by a 5.4 litre 32-valve V8 based on the Shelby GT500 motor, this Jet could well be (ok, more like will be) a monster of the 1/4 mile! Although it has the same engine as the GT500, it has been gone over a little to get a few more hp/kW’s & lb-ft/Nm’s. But don’t fear! Ford Racing says that there is plenty of room for some ‘extra’ personal modifications (an extra supercharger anyone? >:D). It also features puny front tyres, but super phat & fat rear tyres. Also, it is stripped out to the max. to reduce the weight of the car.

With only 50 of these fire-breathing monsters being built, there are going to be some very lucky people! And just to make the prospect of this drag car even better, here is a video Ford posted on YouTube of a testing session:

And if you are a very lucky person who has been invited to SEMA, you may well see this baby in the metal! If not, stay tuned for pics…
