Although we were one of the first outlets to bring you specs on the competition-only 2012 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet, official pictures were hard to come by – until today, when Ford released the first shots of their factory backed dragster.
Unveiled at the PRI Show (a trade show for racing gear held in Orlando, Florida), the Cobra Jet. Only 50 will be built, and ordering will be done on a first come first serve basis. Starting at $91,900, the Cobra Jet gets a 5.4L V8 similar to the Shelby GT500, but with a choice of two superchargers, the top unit being a massive Ford Racing Whipple supercharger. A full roll cage and a special automatic transmission are also standard, along with beefed up engine internals and Weld drag racing wheels. Fully loaded, the Cobra Jet will cost $103,980.
