Ford Racing unveiled at the 2014 SEMA Show the 2015 Mustang King Cobra, a vehicle built to be a high-performance street-and-drag strip car. According to the manufacturer, the concept is a showcase for Ford Racing’s first performance packages for the 2015 Mustang GT and it is equipped with the Drag Pack, Handling Pack and Super Pack supercharger kit in order to deliver a staggering 600+ hp.
Ford says that the Drag Pack includes heavy-duty half shafts as well as a rear sub-frame kit with pre-installed high-performance bushings that improve traction and put optimum power to the ground. Moreover, the Handling Pack brings the car 1 inch closer to the ground thanks to front and rear lowering springs and also includes rear shocks and a stabilizer bar kit.
Meanwhile, the Super Pack supercharger kit offers a 2.3-liter Twin Vortices Series (TVS) supercharger assembly, a six-rib belt drive system, intake manifold, electronic throttle body, air inlet system, fuel rail and high-flow fuel injectors, but also a complete air-to-liquid intercooler system and the Ford Racing performance computer recalibration.
“At Ford Racing, we like to push cars to their absolute limit,” said Jamie Allison, director, Ford Racing. “This is something we have been doing for 113 years and why we were so excited to get our hands on the all-new, 2015 Mustang."
“We wanted Mustang enthusiasts to be able to open up the Ford Racing parts catalog and get one of everything and see what they could get. We think the King Cobra package is it. But none of this great work would be possible if Team Mustang had not built the best production Mustang yet.” [source: Ford]
