Article by Anita Panait, on October 7, 2013

The 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet prototype fetched $200,000 at the Barrett-Jackson Auction Company’s Las Vegas sale last weekend. Proceeds are to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, which helps people diagnosed with this disabling disease of the central nervous system.

The winning bidder for the Cobra Jet does not only become the proud owner of the NHRA-legal vehicle, but he/she also becomes an honorary member of Team Mustang with full backstage passes to the Ford Product Development Center, Ford Design Studios and Ford Racing.

Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer, said that watching the 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet prototype “cross the block” in support of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society was very rewarding. He remarked that the Cobra Jet is “an amazing competition-ready car that will make any team an instant force in its class.”

He quipped that the Mustang Cobra Jet “will be an inspiring reminder for anyone who sees it on the drag strip” to continue working to fight the effects of Multiple Sclerosis.

The 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet prototype is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 paired to a T4 racing gearbox. It features an optional traction “wheelie” bar, 8.50 ET certified chrome-moly safety cage, exclusive Cobra Jet-branded Weld wheels and three-link rear suspension as well as lightweight racing brakes, 9-inch rear axle, and custom Cobra-branded Recaro seats.

The 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet was the prototype for the 2014 model year racer, and carries a distinct serial number of #2014 BJMS CJXX1.  It is finished in a fiery orange satin with dark gray reflective stripes. It features a unique license plate with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s logo.
