nothing short of spectacular in execution, detail and authenticity.

the blown 428CobraJet engine that was in it. Thanks for watching. Warren.

fastest car in the world 2012 Mustang Cobra Jet 0-60 less than a sec
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
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.
