2013 Cobra Jet Mustangs Hit The Track

If there's one thing that Mustangs can do well, it's run. Ford's 2013 Cobra Jet turn-key drag racers put on a show as they spring down the quarter mile in this video. Both the naturally-aspirated and the supercharged models were testing at the Palm Beach International raceway. A good look at the new cars shows us two things:

1. They're really good at doing burnouts. 2. They both look really quick.

Of course, they're both hopelessly street-illegal, meaning that you'll probably only be able to see these things at the track. They're built to NHRA specs, so I anticipate seeing these cars burning down the quarter mile in competitions around the country. It won't come cheap, though, as the naturally aspirated car will cost $$85,490. The supercharged model comes in at a steep $92,990. For a competitive turn-key racer, though, the price might be worth it.

Experience with the Cobra Jets? Could your built beast outrun these bought bullets? Let your voice be heard in the forum!

Daniel Reardon (Tue, 06 Mar 2012 12:51:24 -0800): I would absolutely love to have a 2013 Cobra.
Lou Messier (Tue, 06 Mar 2012 13:46:47 -0800): Ford's original mustangs were a poor man's performance car and took the performance world by storm. The 2005-2009 models were reasonably affordable, but now Ford has made owning a new high performance Mustang a rich man's reality. Gues I'll run my 2006 and put any money into my 69 sportroof. Thanks Ford for turning your back on those of us that kept you in profits1.
