One of the quietest burn-outs you’ll ever hear.
Its powertrain delivers more 1,400-horsepower and over 1,100 ft.-lb. of torque.
It’ll crush the quarter-mile in the low 8s.
It looks like the old adage that is to “race on Sunday, sell on Monday” is making a comeback. Like all other major carmakers, Ford is investing heavily in electrification. Unlike Volkswagen, for example, Ford Performance runs deep in North America and one of its favourite playgrounds is the dragstrip. This is why they’ve built 1,400+ horsepower all-electric Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 electric dragster.
Dave Pericak, Global Director, Ford Icons said: “Ford has always used motorsport to demonstrate innovation. Electric powertrains give us a completely new kind of performance and the all-electric Cobra Jet 1400 is one example of pushing new technology to the absolute limit. We’re excited to showcase what’s possible in an exciting year when we also have the all-electric Mustang Mach-E joining the Mustang family.”
It’s clear that the Cobra Jet 1400, which will decimate the ¼ mile run in the low-8-second range at more than 170 mph, is meant to convince Ford enthusiasts that there’s more to performance than big engines and race fuel. Once the pandemic blows over, Ford Performance will demonstrate the car’s abilities at drag racing events for fans, media, and competitors alike.
Mark Rushbrook, Global Director, Ford Performance Motorsports added: “This project was a challenge for all of us at Ford Performance, but a challenge we loved jumping into.” We can only imagine!
