The 2018 model year marks the 50th anniversary of the Cobra Jet Mustang and to celebrate the half-century of high performance excellence, the Motor Company is rolling out their quickest factory-built pony vehicle ever.

Based on the newest Mustang, it uses a supercharged 5.2-litre Coyote V8 and is capable of demolishing a quarter-mile run in the mid eight-second range, with an insane 150 miles per hour trap speed. That began a long legacy of cars that eschew public roads in favor of track use.

The 5.2-litre Coyote V8 is 200cc bigger than the 5.0-litre donk in the last Cobra Jet from 2016, which was made from 75 percent stock Mustang GT parts and was also said to be capable of a sub-9.0-second quarter mile - though it's presumed that was in the high eights.

Basheeruddin, a resident of Pernambut and a consumer activist, said there was cash shortage in many ATMs of nationalised banks. Demand for cash shot up by 450 billion rupees ($6.9 billion) in the first two weeks of April alone, it said.

Of the almost 126 000 vehicles registered worldwide, Ford reported 81 866 of those were registered in the United States, meaning just over one-third of all Mustang registrations are occurring in export markets. Final power figures haven't been shared yet, teasingly, but Ford isn't being so coy about the drag results. "Even more encouraging is that the updated 2018 Mustang is just now getting rolled out to export markets". Inside there's an NHRA-certified roll cage, along with Racetech FIA seats.

Production will be limited to just 68 cars that will not be street legal. The 68 cars will be available in Race Red or Oxford White, with available commemorative 50th-anniversary graphics package and anniversary badging - including on the wheels.

FORD Performance Parts has teased a "roid popping tribute to the original Cobra Jet dragster, which it says will be 'the quickest straight-line Stallion yet". If you've been wanting to show your 840 horsepower Dodge Demon owning friends what shame feels like, this could well be the auto to do it in. Ford says it'll detail the full specs closer to that point, as well as confirming pricing.
