The updated 2013 Ford Cobra Jet Mustang has been unveiled by Ford Racing at PRI.
Ford Racing chose the Performance Racing Industry Show in Orlando, Florida, as the venue to unveil their 2013 Ford Cobra Jet Mustang (M-FR500-C). The Cobra Jet Mustang, designed for NHRA Stock and Super Stock racing, has been given a lighter body, an electric power steering system and a revised suspension geared specifically for handling the high speeds of the race track. It is available with a pair of 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engines.
The entry-level naturally-aspirated engine is pretty fierce, featuring a Cobra Jet induction system. The high-performance variant features a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger complemented with a CNC port matched manifold and heads. Ford Racing will be producing only 50 copies of the 2013 Ford Cobra Jet Mustang, with pricing set to start at $85,490 for the standard and $93,000 for the high-performance model. In comparison, last year's model ran about $10K more.
