@Julian. 3 speed is use because it is not a street legal vehicle. The 3 speed lets it get to redline at the end of the run. Less shifting=faster time.
Kevin Morris Mar 26, 2013
Like to see a 5.8 twin turbo option!
Taylor J. Blake Mar 26, 2013
I thought they were gonna put a 5.8 in it?
Julian Rasolko Mar 26, 2013
why don't they put in a 6 speed gearbox?
Brandon Chamberlain Mar 26, 2013
Should have the 429 cobra jet engine in it
Jacob Viiper McCord Mar 26, 2013
oh, wait, don't see it was a 5.0
Jacob Viiper McCord Mar 26, 2013
Gotta keep the 5.4 in this.
Braxton Omgbased Booker Mar 26, 2013
Thought they were going twin turbo for the new one
Jason Bartlett Mar 26, 2013
What happened to the ecoboost cobra jet ? Sounded like a pretty stout power plant to me ?
Shelby Cassandra Mar 26, 2013
@Taylor. Also not street legal. Evens out.
Taylor Garry Mar 26, 2013
I mean this price is half what the shelby 1000 is
Lucas Raggio Mar 26, 2013
The only recent mustang I like. Speed is cool. And I like wheelies
Tim Preisinger Mar 26, 2013
I agree with Matt 100%. While I would to drive one of these.. I feel like if you buy something like this straight out of the factory, it's not as enjoyable. I love seeing my car progress and knowing the work that was put into it
Matt Piccolo Mar 26, 2013
I can understand the pricing, but I still wouldn't buy one. I'd rather do the work on my own car then buy it tuned. Looks sweet though
Dillon Dixon Mar 26, 2013
$97K is significantly cheaper than any factory race car. You can buy this and enter directly into NHRA and compete. It would be pretty difficult to build a car for that class for cheaper.
Shelby Cassandra Mar 26, 2013
You guys know that this runs an 8 second 1/4 mile? At least try to sound like you're intelligent.
Facundo Planas Martinelli Mar 26, 2013
Agree Chris, but this is a "Race Drag" Car, and if you consider all the improvements and mods its actually not that expensive. This car is a beast!!!
Chris Nicholas Mar 26, 2013
98 grand in a mustang are you kidding me??? Lmao the # one thing the mustang is all about is cause it's cheap and fast...
Bala Uncc Mar 26, 2013
My car in csr racing
Preston Harris Mar 26, 2013
It's a "drag" racer
Jason Brown Mar 26, 2013
Looks very tacky...
Wyatt Gordon Mar 26, 2013
Better than that stupid COPO Camaro
Zeus Mocha Mar 26, 2013
Camaro fan. This thing is absolutely awesome got to see this and a modded Boss LS run at the ford test track.
Colby Church Mar 26, 2013
I like the Camaro more, being a GM fan, but the Cobra Jet is pretty badass.
Daniel Kenneth Babler Mar 26, 2013
I think it's sick! And if I had the cash I'd try and get this and the COPO Camaro
Jacob Torres Mar 26, 2013
Camaro fans.
Nick Rowe Mar 26, 2013
Love these and who wouldn't?
Description: Other appointments include a full rollcage, race-tuned suspension, FIA-approved Recaro race seats and some massive tires. Each car also has a unique serial number for future collectability. Interested...

Ahahahah, carbuzz did ban him again! Pat on the back mr admin man at carbuzz, but he will probably make a new account...nxS
Brett Vincent Mar 27, 2013
Third time's the charm?
Tim Preisinger Mar 27, 2013
Banned again huh buddy?
Nick Rowe Mar 27, 2013
What it was he got banned ๐Ÿ˜‚
Tyler Tarbox Mar 27, 2013
If they are only making 50 then these will definitely end up selling for a lot more than $100K.
Tim Preisinger Mar 27, 2013
Yep. People who buy this car will be the same people who build cars which aren't street legal. Just for drag racing
Kyle Rawn Mar 26, 2013
I don't think this is just a weekend dragster. More like a professional series car. The average person is not going to buy this. Only the hardcore full time drag guys will. Correct me if I'm wrong
Carlos Dorantes Mar 26, 2013
Pretty badass but 100K for a cool weekend dragster?
Zeus Mocha Mar 26, 2013
It's not even about the roll cage. The point is find me a brand new GTR and mod it to make low 8's in the quarter and spend only 100K. You must be one bad ass bargainer for a dealer to sell a GTR under 100K or pull some magic out of your behind lol
Justin Routh Mar 26, 2013
Nxs is what we call an attention whore. He knows hes being an ignorant asshole but it pisses people off and that makes him feel all warm inside.
Duncan Cameron Mar 26, 2013
With Colby all day besides the LS comment.
Zeus Mocha Mar 26, 2013
Everyone should stop messing with nxs. He is handicapped with an illness known as the "head up his ass." It seems very severe and we should accommodate by not bothering him anymore. On another note Camaro foreverrrrr.
Lou Guerrero Mar 26, 2013
You can always spot a troll when they start angrily misspelling and revert to physical threats on forums. Zero respect given, clown.
Tim Preisinger Mar 26, 2013
Paul, I highly doubt he is done... But if he is I for one would be kinda sad. Although he makes absolutely no sense, it can be pretty entertaining if you don't take it to seriously.
David Gomez Mar 26, 2013
Parents need to start limiting their kids Internet usage. Immaturity is so annoying.
Brittany Sawyer Mar 26, 2013
Who's idea was it to bring nxs back?
Paul Dickey Mar 26, 2013
And this is exhibit a as to why you're always being bashed. They're giving you helpful advice. If you want to continue to enjoy this app I'd take it.
Zachary Maurer Mar 26, 2013
An ok guy, but when you post something like "100k? That's bs! I can get a gtr for the same price as this piece of crap! And plus that will destroy this thing!" Then I hope you can understand why we think you are annoying.
Zachary Maurer Mar 26, 2013
Brett and Colby are right nxs, the only reason you are getting yelled at us because post your opinions in a very self centered way. If you post "hey u don't really like this car I prefer the gtr, but this is respectable" then you would come back as..
Tim Preisinger Mar 26, 2013
What Colby said.
Brett Vincent Mar 26, 2013
Is "butthurt, a moron, some other pointless insult... Et cetera, Et cetera) and people wouldn't find your comments so irritating.
Brett Vincent Mar 26, 2013
As Colby mentioned, and as I mentioned last time nXs, it is your childish nature that stirs people up, not your opinions. You constantly lob petty insults toward anyone who makes a remark toward you. Try not saying that everyone who responds to you
Lucas Raggio Mar 26, 2013
@ Tyler you are so right the r8 is the perfect car IMO. It just does everything so well
Colby Church Mar 26, 2013
But an NHRA top fuel drag car would drown out this and anything else. Haha
Colby Church Mar 26, 2013
And if anyone thinks a turbo V6 can even come close to the sound of a supercharged 5 liter V8, they need their ears checked. When that V8 roars to life and screams down the track, I doubt you would even be able to hear anything other than another V8.
Colby Church Mar 26, 2013
And to get a GTR even close to this fast, you might as well drop an LS in it and convert it to RWD, because it would take over 150k just in modifications(not counting the car) to make that platform run high 7's.
Colby Church Mar 26, 2013
Also, I've yet to see any AWD car make it in the 6's. I'm not referring to this car's drag time, it's in the 7's, but AWD isn't the ideal platform for straight line racing. RWD launches much faster if both cars have high horsepower and slicks.
Colby Church Mar 26, 2013
@nxs Dude, people aren't hating because your voicing your opinion, it's the manner in which you go about it. Sometimes you come off disrespectful, and people aren't going to respond well to that. I debate hard sometimes, but I try to be civil.
Paul Dickey Mar 26, 2013
I didn't think this was possible but nxs has become way worse than jack the bastard! Sad times on carbuzz today.
Dillon Dixon Mar 26, 2013
@nxs. You do realize the main objective for the Cobra Jet is as a factory race car. You can buy this car and take it to an NHRA event and race. You can always make a car faster than another by throwing more money into it. But that is not the point at all. Please, stop acting like an arrogant know-it-all.
Jason Ware Mar 26, 2013
Mustang articles on car buzz bring soooo many comments. There's a thin line between love and hate
Zachary Maurer Mar 26, 2013
And also this has a level of exclusivity that the gtr dosent have, only 50 of them will be made, bragging rights
Zachary Maurer Mar 26, 2013
As of now, I've had this app for about 1 1/2 to 2 years, and there is a list of trolls that got banned on this app/forum, nxs is just another, there are always going to be arrogant assholes, we just need to get used to them until they get banned
Shelby Cassandra Mar 26, 2013
The ignorance on CarBuzz is amazing. NO car under 100k will beat this in a quarter mile. Period. The closest would be the COPO, but still no.
Braxton Omgbased Booker Mar 26, 2013
For is a straight line
Braxton Omgbased Booker Mar 26, 2013
How much hp does this have?, because 1000hp gtr were running 8s last time i checked and there was a video of a 1000hp gtr on the track on carbuzz and that thing wasent breaking any lap times just sliding around once the boost kicks in all its good
Ryan Faber Mar 26, 2013
i love how nxs says he was never banned and then someone brings up that all of his comments from nXs were deleted and he suddenly remembers that he was and reformatted it to nxs to get back on here and try and be the carbuzz troll. as for this article, I bet this wouldn't be a bad buy. have fun taking it to the strip for a couple years then store it for about 10+ more and get all your money back ...
Tyler Howell Mar 26, 2013
i am sorry, i shouldn't have said that. how about we all just get back to enjoying this fine app?
Tyler Howell Mar 26, 2013
"not my fault if people get all butt hurt over an opinion" doesn't sound too friendly to me.. just an opinion though..
Tyler Tarbox Mar 26, 2013
$100K for a toy? No thanks. I'll take an Audi R8 for that money
David Parenti Mar 26, 2013
A GTR is a good track/strip car. A corvette is a good choice. But, the Cobra Jet mustang will blow their doors off every time. It's a 7 sec drag car. You can't have the best of both worlds if you want a 7 sec car.
David Parenti Mar 26, 2013
Also, there is no freedom of speech on a forum or thread. The comments are up to the discretion of the forum director. nxs, you are violating the terms and conditions of this site. Plain and simple. Freedom of Speech, but you are a guest here.
David Parenti Mar 26, 2013
You mean the 1st Amendment if you are talking about Freedom of Speech... The 2nd Amendment is the Right to Bear Arms (gun ownership).
David Parenti Mar 26, 2013
nxs, every one of your comments under the name NXS was removed. CarBuzz does that when they ban you.
David Parenti Mar 26, 2013
Thanks Kyle.
Kyle Rawn Mar 26, 2013
I can almost guarantee you that a car that does 7s will most certainly not set good track times. Once you get into high performance levels like this, it's one race mode or the other. Not both
Tyler Howell Mar 26, 2013
If someone had the money for this car I'm sure that they could afford a track car as well
Senthil Namasivayam Mar 26, 2013
Comment on something 3 years old...
David Parenti Mar 26, 2013
Jordan, he's already been banned. He came back with the same name different format.
Jordan Jackson Mar 26, 2013
If you do t like the car don't read the article much less comment, unless you want to get yourself kicked, nobody would miss you
David Parenti Mar 26, 2013
The ONLY thing you can compare the Cobra Jet to is the COPO Camaro.
David Parenti Mar 26, 2013
NXS a GTR as fast as the cobra jet in the 1/4 mile would cost over 200k. The cobra jet is appealing to drag racers. People buy it for drag racing. Not for lapping the 'ring. Of you can't see that then stop comparing the cobra jet to the GTR.
David Parenti Mar 26, 2013
Nxs. if a car costs 100k less than this, you'd have nothing...the F are you talking about?
Senthil Namasivayam Mar 26, 2013
This nxs guy should become a congressman. Hes pretty good at debating.
Tyler Howell Mar 26, 2013
car that*
Tyler Howell Mar 26, 2013
how can you compare a road car to a that is strictly a drag car? this would rape a gtr in a drag race....
Zachary Maurer Mar 26, 2013
vvv This guy sounds arrogant vvv
David Parenti Mar 26, 2013
100k is a steal compared to what a race ready 7 sec car is going for these days. Plus the mod list for mustangs is endless. No trouble finding aftermarket parts for these
Jason Ware Mar 26, 2013
7.8 seconds 1/4 mile
Taylor J. Blake Mar 26, 2013
You are retarded. This is a drag car only. And it'll smoke the shit outta a Lambo or gtr in a QM race. Just sayin..
Leo Haberkamp Apr 25, 2013
Amazing color on the car much better than the white!!
Craig Lafey Mar 27, 2013
Looks great. Colors are amazing
Tim Preisinger Mar 26, 2013
Looks good with this color
Jacob Viiper McCord Mar 26, 2013
It has the menacing look
Ghaith AL-sharari Mar 26, 2013
Best color right here
Herbert Beltran Mar 26, 2013
If the design was either all black or all grabber blue maybe deep impact blue, it would look perfect
Stephen Cobbs Mar 26, 2013
Kill it with fire
Alex Smith Mar 26, 2013
"Gotta have it green" is pretty damn ugly
Wyatt Gordon Mar 26, 2013
I like this one best
Stephen Cobbs Mar 26, 2013
Kill this one too
