Ford vs. Ford: Cobra Jet versus GRC Fiesta ST
On one side, you have a 2013 Cobra Jet -- a 5.0L V8 powerplant with a Ford Racing-built Whipple 2.9L Supercharger. On the other is a Ford Fiesta ST Competition Car -- a 2.0L, 550+ horsepower engine with an OlsbergsMSE gearbox with custom ratios. For fun, we took one of each to zMAX Dragway in Charlotte, with drivers Roy Hill and Tanner Foust...just to see how the two would compare on the quartermile.

2012 Cobra Jet Build
Since its legendary introducation at the NHRA Winternationals in 1968, Ford's Cobra Jet Mustang has created a legacy of power, performance and triumph that has carried through the decades. The 2012 Cobra Jet, like the Mustang FR500S and 2010 Cobra Jet, was built on the Mustang production line at the Auto Alliance International (AAI) assembly plant in Flat Rock, Michigan. The entire 50-car run of 2012 Cobra Jets was built on the same production line that produces the 2012 Ford Mustang production car.

Twin Turbo 5.0L Ti-VCT Cobra Jet Concept Car Debuts at SEMA
When the original Cobra Jet debuted at the 1968 Winternational's it ushered in a new era of production-based drag racing that grew the sport and led to Bob Tasca coining the phrase "win on Sunday, sell on Monday". This production-based philosophy led to the return of the Cobra Jet in 2008, and has proven successful with 2010, 2012 and 2013 Cobra Jet programs delivering previously unheard of performance at race tracks around the country. Wrapped in our global Ford Racing colors, the Twin turbo Cobra Jet Concept mates the capability of the 5.0L TiVCT engine with the technology of Ford's turbocharger programs to create a vehicle capable of championship level performance to give our racers the winning edge. With more NHRA records and wins than any other late-model vehicle, the Cobra Jet is the standard in production drag racing and the Twin turbo concept provides a glimpse of what the future may hold through Ford Racing. Others may build race cars, at Ford Racing we engineer a Cobra Jet.
