The 2018 Cobra Jet

The well known and loved Cobra Jet is making a comeback! The track-ready race car will make its 2018 debut in honor of its 50th Anniversary this coming summer. It is anticipate that only 68 models will be produced although it is not for sale as a street driving car. It is reserved for the race track.

It is designed for the National Hot Rod Association drag racing and other associations.

“From the very first Mustang Cobra Jets dominating the 1968 NHRA Winter Nationals to our modern-day Cobra Jet racers, the Ford Performance Parts team continues to build the Cobra Jet brand based on its success at the track over five decades,” said Eric Cin, global director of Ford Performance Parts, in an official statement. 

The original Ford Mustang Cobra Jet was presented in 1968 on the racetrack and competed in the 1968 National Hot Rod Association Winter Nationals. This was only four years after the first Mustang was debuted.

The last time this model was offered was back in 2016, and only 50 were made.


The suspension will be a bespoke four-way multi- inch front suspension and a Ford nine-inch rear axle.

The 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet will be the fastest factory Mustang to date being able to do a quarter of a mile in only 8 seconds. The engine is a supercharged 5.2-liter Coyote V8. It is the most powerful Ford yet.


The exterior colors will be offered in either Race Red or Oxford White with an exclusive 50th-anniversary badge.  The NHRA-certified roll cage and Racetech FIA seats.

The upgrades and speed ability make this car not road legal, and is only good for the race track or novelty.

Don’t be disappointed that this car is not ready for the road! The Mustang Shelby GT500 coming next year can reach more than 700 horsepower! This car is ready for the road. It was supposed to be revealed at the Detroit auto show; although, it did not happen Ford still confirmed the GT500 its release.

This car will be the most powerful, street legal, car sold! Check out the video teaser below, and get as excited as we are!
