Ford Racing Unveils 2013 Cobra Jet Mustang

Follow Viknesh

Today, Ford Racing unveiled the 2013 Cobra Jet Mustang at the Performance Racing Industry show in Orlando, Florida.

This is the latest in Ford Racing’s Cobra Jet lineage, which began with the drag racing special’s victorious introduction at the NHRA Winternationals back in 1968.

The legacy was revitalized in '08 when Ford Racing offered a limited run of the 40th Anniversary Cobra Jet Mustang, which quickly sold out.

Now we have the '13 Cobra Jet, which offers two 5.0-liter ‘Coyote’ V-8 engine options. Buyers may choose the naturally aspirated Cobra Jet induction system, with CNC-ported heads, high lift cams, and low-drag accessory drive, or the supercharged version with a Ford Racing and Whipple supercharger and CNC-port-matched manifold and heads.

Additionally, the 2013 CJ body has been lightened for optimized weight distribution, and the car features electric power steering.

Other improvements include a roll cage with safety enhancements, improved brake pedal feel, and improved suspension geometry for optimum 60-foot times.

Pricing for the 2013 Cobra Jet Mustang starts at $85,490 for the naturally aspirated version and $92,990 for the supercharged one. All 2013 CJs are NHRA tech ready for Stock or Super Stock competition and only 50 examples are scheduled to be built. 

Thanks M for sending in the tip!

  1. This is great news. With Chevy joining the muscle car wars with the Camaro, the Mustang and Camaro will give the Dodge Challenger Drag Pak cars some competition. The Challengers have been doing very well in the NHRA Stock and Super Stock classes and they should only do better as more and more Drag Paks Challengers hit the track. The Fords and Chevys may not be able to stand toe to toe with the HEMI,and V-10 Dodges, but it will be nice to see them try. Thanks Ford for making things a bit more interesting.

  2. FORD is making gm and chrysler spend a lot of money to out run a 5.0 litre that 302 cubic inches. that ugly car called a camaro that looks nothing like a camaro is going to a super charged vette 427 to out run a plain 302 a little 5.0 but still had lots of problems with the 5.4 331ci supercharged engine still smaller then gm and chrysler. I know what the ss on a camaro stand for super slow and the rs are really slow.I do not talk about chrysler much cause they do not have nothing fast the srt-8 is a stroker engine 392 cubic in but them hemi engines are tv commercial fast.I know Ford trucks are the slowest trucks out there but fast trucks do not pull good not geared wright but compare truck after a few years and see why FORD trucks are #1
