Ford has yet to officially announce the 2012 Mustang Cobra Jet. The next Mustang Cobra Jet takes Ford’s turnkey dragster program to a higher level with a new aluminum engine block and other upgrades for the 2012 model year.

The 2012 Cobra Jet will feature a 5.4l supercharged engine with a few tweaks which will allow it to develop 430 horsepower. Linked to it will be a 3-speed C4 Auto Race transmission. The unit is hoped to put the car in the quarter mid-8 range when using the 4.0l supercharger option for drag racing.

This power will be put to use with a drag race wheel/tire combination and Cobra Jet spring/adjustable damper tuning to go along with the improved rear suspension with revised rear upper control arm and lower control arm mounts. Stopping power will come from light-weight, low-drag brakes.

It will be available directly from the Ford Racing catalog and it is purpose-built to compete in the NHRA Stock and Super Stock racing classes. It is essentially a race-ready drag-strip car straight off the showroom floor. Kit includes supercharger, billet throttle-body, complete inlet system with 140mm billet mass-air housing, installation instructions, and exclusive Ford Racing race-ready calibration.
