The Ford Racing engineers are working to make the 2010 Cobra Jet even meaner than the 2008 version. While testing with a 2008 bodied mule at the wonderful Norwalk strip in Ohio, we noticed that it hooked up quite nicely. What do you think?

In preparation for their debut at the upcoming NHRA Division 3 points meet in Indy, Ford Racing spent a day at Milan Dragway overseeing the test of the two new NHRA approved pushrod engines. Jim Ronzello (428cid) and Chris Holbrook (352cid) were testing their respective Cobra Jet's prior to competing at the Indy points meet and select NHRA races in 2010. A traditional 5.4 supercharged was also on hand for testing too. As shown in this video, testing exceeded expectations

You've seen the Cobra Jet tear up the strip from the outside. Now we invite you to take a ride from the inside as the Ford Racing engineers validate the 2010 power train on our 2008 test mule. We're all about sharing information, but there are some secrets we just can't give away. Enjoy the ride!

2012 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet
We're all for an event that culminates with the serving of cake, especially when the sweet stuff is delivered in tandem with supercharged Mustang coupes built especially for drag racing. Ford recently threw a party at the Auto Alliance Mustang factory in Flat Rock, MI to celebrate the official delivery of its new 2012 Mustang Cobra Jet, a vehicle that the company proudly maintains is quickest accelerating production vehicle ever made. When pressed, Ford tells us the CJ will do a 60-foot launch in 1.3 seconds and the quarter-mile in under 10 seconds. We asked about a 0-60 mph time, but we were reminded that measurement is pretty meaningless in drag racing.
Cobra Jet buyers from all over came from as far away as Calgary, Alberta and Puerto Rico to participate in the ceremony and take delivery of their new racecars, and we're betting they would have made the trek even without the sheet cake. All attendees signed a 2012 Mustang Cobra Jet hood that will later be placed on the walls of the production facility.
