New Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Is an Electric Dragster With 1,400 HP

Ford Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 prototype looks a lot like a regular Mustang on steroids, with optimized bodywork and fat rubber signifying its quarter-mile purpose.



The Mustang Mach-E is a clear indication Ford wants to make quick, powerful electric cars. Now the Blue Oval has prepared an even more potent pony: a Cobra Jet EV dragster with more than 1,400 horsepower.

Like fossil-fuel-powered Cobra Jets, the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 prototype looks a lot like a regular Mustang on steroids, with optimized bodywork and fat rubber signifying its quarter-mile purpose. For better or worse, though, this latest model sounds nothing like your average 'Stang. In a teaser video released by Ford, the electric prototype seems to perform its dragly duties in all the smoky, hellaciously quick ways we're used to—except it's eerily quiet.


Ford Performance expects a quarter-mile run in the low-eight-second range at more than 170 mph. As you might expect, that will completely cream the mightiest street Mustang, the Shelby GT500, which we've clocked hitting the mark in 11.3 seconds at 131.6 mph when equipped with the Carbon Fiber Track Pack. It'll also be much quicker than the 1968 Mustang Cobra Jet, which Hot Rod pushed to a 13.56-second quarter-mile. Torque is estimated at more than 1,100 lb-ft in the new monster EV.


Ford will debut the Cobra Jet 1400 later this year at an unspecified drag-racing event. Without going into more detail, the automaker said attendees will be able to witness its capabilities on the track. Ahead of the debut, Ford continues to test and perfect the prototype. In the process, it has teamed up with various suppliers, including MLe Racecars, a vehicle builder, integrator, and tuner; Watson Engineering, which specializes in chassis support and development; AEM EV for software and motor calibration; and Cascadia, an inverter and motor supplier.


Ford is making a huge push toward electrified vehicles. The automaker wants to make hybrid or plug-in hybrid versions of just about everything in its vehicle lineup. An all-electric F-150 is on the way, and Ford is partnering with Rivian on an electric Lincoln SUV.
