The “Jet” lives!!!January 8, 2009
You may remember a few months ago we showed you Ford Racing’s latest project – the FR500CJ Mustang. Well, it is officially alive! Ford has started production of their new quarter-mile king.
Featuring a modified 5.4-liter V8 with cold air induction, the Cobra Jet features stainless steel competition headers, upgraded rear axle and driveshaft, drag-optimized adjustable suspension, and unique wheels wrapped in slicks. Buyers can choose between a six-speed manual or three-speed automatic, and the interior is augmented by racing buckets and short-throw shifter (on the manual version). The vehicles, which receive unique VINs since they aren’t street legal, are delivered in body-on-white, with louvered rear window panels. The package presents an affordable and straightforward racing platform for those seeking domination of the quarter-mile. Check it out in the galleries below.
