The Demon is a road auto that can be adapted for the drag strip.
Of the almost 126 000 vehicles registered worldwide, Ford reported 81 866 of those were registered in the United States, meaning just over one-third of all Mustang registrations are occurring in export markets.
Powered by a supercharged 5.2-litre Coyote V8, the 2018 Cobra Jet is the latest generation of Ford's purpose-built drag racer designed specifically to comply with regulations set by America's National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and different National Mustang Racers Association and National Muscle Car Association classes. Final power figures haven't been shared yet, teasingly, but Ford isn't being so coy about the drag results.
To help achieve its hypercar acceleration (expect a sub-2.2sec 0-100km/h time), Ford says it has re-engineered the current Mustang's rear suspension to incorporate a new four-link set-up and a heavy-duty 9.0-inch solid rear axle. Other upgrades installed for the limited-run dragster are the following: NHRA-certified roll cage, Racetech FIA seats, drag-tuned coil-over suspension and specially-designed Weld Racing Wheels with 50 anniversary badging. It will be available in Race Red and Oxford White color options. Don't get any ideas about making it a daily driver, however.
Ford says out of the 68 Mustang Cobra Jets it will make, all will be non-VIN production cars, meaning it will be impossible to register them either in the United States or Down Under.
It's not a road vehicle, mind, so you can't say "oh it'll smash the Dodge Demon in a straight line".
We'll see the order books open up this coming summer.
Thought to have been created to, not only, mark five decades since the original Ford-produced Mustang Cobra Jet was launched, the Blue Oval's real motivation is also to beat the Dodge Demon where it hurts, on track. Ford says it'll detail the full specs closer to that point, as well as confirming pricing.
