Production is limited to just 68 cars, to honour that 1968 debut, starting from United States $130,000.

It's summertime in Detroit, and that means one thing: the Woodward Dream Cruise, a weeklong celebration of muscle cars, hot rods, classics and all things automotive. Ford says the new Mustang Cobra Jet is capable of over 150 miles per hour on the strip, while delivering a mid-eight-second quarter-mile run. The auto is fitted with an NHRA-certified roll cage, FIA-certified seats and retro looking 50th anniversary graphics along with anniversary-badged racing wheels. Some 50 examples of the lightweight Mustang, powered by a 335-horsepower 428-cube FE V8, were built by Ford that year.

The 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet is available in only two colours (red or white), and can be fitted with 50th Anniversary graphics and badging. The 9-inch solid rear axle was designed by Strange Engineering, and the auto gets an NHRA-certified roll cage, as well as Racetech FIA seats and Weld Recing wheels sporting special 50th anniversary badging.

The Ford Performance Parts team developed the 50th Anniversary vehicle to be the most powerful and quickest Mustang Cobra Jet from the factory; capable of topping 150-mph while turning mid-eight-second quarter-mile elapsed times.

But the new Cobra Jet's 5.2-liter supercharged version of Ford's stock 5.0-liter V-8 propels the vehicle to a mid-eight-second quarter-mile (about one second quicker than the 840-hp Demon) and a top speed of more than 150 miles per hour, the automaker claims.

In past years, Cobra Jet allotments have sold out in a few days.

The brutal straight-line pace is made possible by a 5.2-litre V8 with a massive 3.0-litre Whipple supercharger added for good measure.

Lastly and importantly, 2018 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet has a "low-drag" disc brake system from Strange Engineering.

Ford also released a short video for the Mustang Cobra Jet roaring at the launch event.

The starting price for the auto is $130,000, and there really aren't many options to spec for this track-only monster. The 2018 Dodge Demon and the 2019 Scat Pack 1320 have features that make them better on the drag strip, but those cars are both fully street legal.
