What do you buy if you really need to be 1,320 feet away in less than nine seconds? Well, Ford suggests you take a look at the brand new 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet, “the hottest, fastest, most powerful, drag racing Mustang ever.”

A turnkey race car, this new model—limited to just 68 examples—will not be road legal, but will be ready to go to the races from the factory.

Billed as the “quickest Mustang Cobra Jet from the factory ever,” it’s capable of hitting 150 mph and running the quarter mile in the mid eights.

“From the very first Mustang Cobra Jets dominating the 1968 NHRA Winternationals to our modern-day racers, the Ford Performance Parts team continues to build on Cobra Jet’s success at the track over five decades,” said Eric Cin, global director, Ford Performance Parts. “This has inspired generations of Mustang fans to create their own performance machines for the street.”
