Ford has boasted a lot of iconic cars over the years, but none stand out as much as the Ford Mustang. The 50th Anniversary Mustang Cobra is more impressive, powerful, and iconic than ever.
Ford Performance tested out the Mustang Cobra on August 16th, and it’s proven to be the most advanced Mustang yet. When placed on the track, the racecar did a quarter-mile lap in just over eight seconds – a new record for the Mustang.
The Ford Performance Team wanted the 50th anniversary addition of the car to be special, which is why they crafted it to climb to over 150 miles per hour. It’s a nod to the Mustangs that beat out other competitors at the 1968 NHRA Winternationals.
It’s no wonder that this new Mustang model is so fast – under the hood, an advanced 5.2-liter V8 engine can be found. Paired with this engine is a 3.0-liter Whipple supercharger that helps improve the Mustang Cobra’s acceleration. The car’s ride height can be adjusted with two-way coil-over shocks.
This Mustang isn’t just for the race track. Customers can own the Mustang Cobra Jet in Race Red or Oxford White for an MSRP of around $130,000. To honor the iconic car’s anniversary, you can opt to get 50th Anniversary graphics and badging on the car. Learn more about this special edition Ford Mustang when you visit Westland Ford.
