2010 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet

There’s no doubt the new Cobra Jet Mustang from Ford is one mean drag racing machine. When the turnkey race car from Ford Racing was first introduced in 2008 it was grossly underrated at 400 horsepower, as evidenced by numerous nine second time slips, and the car became even faster in 2010 with new transmission and engine options as well as a launch control / rev limiter system.

So just how fast is the 2010 Mustang Cobra Jet? Drag racer Randy Hopkins took his CJ to Tri State Raceway in Earlville, IA and knocked out two mid 8-second 1/4 mile runs, each setting a record for the car. His first run came in at 8.52 @ 156.2 mph and his second was even faster at 8.47 @ 159.2 mph. You can check out both runs in the video below:
