Created to rival (and beat) the 626kW Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet lifts its name from the original 1968 Ford-built Mustang-based drag racers that once dominated the sport. The idea was simple: Ford has seen the coupe build instant popularity among those who value straight-line speed above all else, and decided its own in-house team could do just as well as third-party tuners.

Ford has stated that the Cobra Jet will be the fastest Mustang to date in a straight line, claiming it can run the quarter mile in the mid-eight second range while hitting 240km/h in that time.

Since its launch past year, the Demon has enraptured muscle auto fans around the globe. "Even more encouraging is that the updated 2018 Mustang is just now getting rolled out to export markets".

The most popular configuration worldwide is the Mustang GT with the 5.0-liter V8.

To put down the power quickly and efficiently, the 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet features a unique four-link rear suspension, a Ford 9-inch solid rear axle from Strange Engineering, as well as drag race-specific coil-over suspension with specially designed Weld Racing wheels. Inside there's an NHRA-certified roll cage, along with Racetech FIA seats.

Of the lineage, however, nothing models that goal quite like this new 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet. For 2018, the all-new Cobra Jet will be offered in Race Red or Oxford White, including an available commemorative 50th anniversary graphics package and anniversary badging. Don't get any ideas about making it a daily driver, however.

It's not a road auto, mind, so you can't say "oh it'll smash the Dodge Demon in a straight line". All 68 examples of the Cobra Jet can join National Hot Rod Associated (NHRA) drag race events, along with other several National Mustang Racers Association (NMRA) and National Muscle Car Association (NMCA) classes.

Full specifications will be released this summer.
