2012 Mustang Cobra Jet

My dealership just got one of these in and it is beyond rediculous to even look at, I can't imagine driving the thing.



Quote:
Ford tells us the CJ will do a 60-foot launch in 1.3 seconds and the quarter-mile in under 10 seconds. We asked about a 0-60 mph time, but we were reminded that measurement is pretty meaningless in drag racing.

New for 2012 is an aluminum-block 5.4-liter V8, a modified suspension, low-drag racing brakes, new black anodized wheels and a stickier set of Goodyear racing slicks. The Cobra Jet can be had with your choice of a 2.3-liter TVS supercharger or a 4.0-liter Ford Racing Whipple supercharger.

Both superchargers help the 5.4-liter V8 power out at a National Hot Rod Association-compliant 425 horsepower, though the boosted mills can be tweaked to output hundreds more ponies without much fuss.
