For the first time ever, Ford Performance has introduced a one-off Mustang Cobra Jet factory drag racer with all-electric propulsion.

It is silent and does not use a drop of fuel, but is projected to crush the quarter-mile sprint in the low eight second range at more than 274km/h.

The battery-powered Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 prototype is projected to deliver over 1,381bhp and over 1,491Nm of instant torque
The battery-powered Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 prototype is purpose-built and projected to deliver over 1,381bhp and over 1,491Nm of instant torque to demonstrate the capabilities of an electric powertrain in one of the most demanding race environments.

Following the debut of the all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E SUV - the first-ever, all-electric Mustang, the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 prototype represents another opportunity to advance Mustang heritage and performance while simultaneously incorporating some of the most advanced technology coming to Ford's future powertrains.

The Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 also honors the original Cobra Jet that first dominated drag strips in the late 1960s and still is a major force in sportsman drag racing today. Ford Performance continues to test the Cobra Jet 1400 before it makes a world debut later this year at a drag racing event. Fans, media and competitors alike will soon get to meet the race car and see exactly what iit is capable of on the asphalt.
