2016 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet runs an eight-second quarter mile [w/video]

An eight-second quarter-mile run in a Ford Mustang? It's possible. But you have to have the right Mustang, and in this case, that's the new Cobra Jet. Unveiled at SEMA, the 2016 Cobra Jet builds upon Ford's turnkey racecar program. Only 50 will be made, with each costing $99,990.

The Cobra Jet is a factory-fresh way to run in National Hot Rod Association Stock and Super Stock races, as well as the International Hot Rod Association, National Mustang Racers Association, and National Muscle Car Association. Under the hood is a 5.0-liter V8 with a Whipple supercharger bolted on, and interestingly, Ford says 75 percent of the Cobra Jet's engine is made up of stock Mustang GT parts.

Keeping everything in check are new coilover shocks and springs, lighter brakes, a roll cage, new fuel system, new seats with racing harnesses, and a race-prepped automatic transmission. Optional equipment includes the graphics pack, at $1,995, and the wheelie bar, which will also set you back $1,995.

The answer is "yes" apparently,

    Ford Focus RS configurator hits the Internet

    Ford made waves yesterday when it drooped the performance and pricing details on the new Focus RS. Perhaps keen to keep the momentum going, the Blue Oval has launched the configurator for its new fire-breathing hot hatchback.
