The 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet prototype sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas last weekend raising $200,000 for charity.
Auctioned at no reserve with the proceeds benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the NHRA-legal race car went to an anonymous bidder. Not only will that person receive the vehicle, but is also an honorary member of Team Mustang with full backstage passes to the Ford Product Development Center, Ford Design Studios and Ford Racing.
The Cobra Jet prototype is powered by the American automaker’s 5.0-liter, supercharged V8 engine paired to a T4 racing transmission.
“Watching the car cross the block in support of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society was very rewarding,” says Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer. “It is an amazing competition-ready car that will make any team an instant force in its class. This Mustang Cobra Jet will be an inspiring reminder for anyone who sees it on the drag strip to continue working to combat the effects of MS.”
