The Ford Performance Parts team developed the 50th Anniversary auto with one main goal: to become the most powerful Mustang Cobra Jet ever to leave the factory gates.

Blink, meanwhile, and you might miss it at the drag strip. According to Ford, the 50th anniversary product-now on order-will eclipse previous records by reaching 150 miles per hour (241 km/h) with a quarter-mile run in the mid-eight-second range.

In fact, Ford's engineers started out with the familiar 5.0-liter V8, but bored it out to 5.2-liters. A muscle auto, issued in the amount of 50 copies, was equipped with seven-liter V8 engine, the output of which was 335 forces. Ford Mustang Cobra Jet doesn't only feature unique engine as it has two-way coil-over shocks, an adjustable ride height and a solid 9-inch rear end.

Valverde still amazed by Barcelona ace
The free kick goal was Barcelona's 6000th La Liga goal. "We started a year ago with this midfield and it has great strength". Celta Vigo were held to a 1-1 draw by Espanyol, while on Friday Levante pulled off a surprise 3-0 win at Real Betis.

Production drag racers are still a niche in the performance vehicle world, but not unheard of. No official horsepower ratings given as yet, but comparisons with the Dodge Demon may be popping up for the best dragstrip monster. "Next week, there will be a new Mustang Cobra Jet that gets unveiled associated with Woodward", Rushbrook said following the debut of Ford's NASCAR Cup series Mustang last week. That kickstarted a legacy which continues five decades on.

Still, we do know that the Cobra Jet is powered by a "strengthened" (slightly larger displacement than normal) 5,2-litre version of Ford's V8, fitted with a 3,0-litre Whipple supercharger. Tasca was a auto racer, but he was also at that time the owner of a Ford dealership. This model is a special edition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Cobra Jet's launch.

While the color wouldn't be the deciding factor to buy one, the latest Cobra Jets are only available in two colors - Race Red or Oxford White. There is an option to outfit the vehicle with exclusive 50th Anniversary graphics and badging, too - and let's be honest, you would, wouldn't you? Production is set to be limited to just 68 cars, in honor of the Cobra Jet's 1968 debut, with each example priced at $130,000.
