Engineered to shatter towering performance goals without using a drop of fuel, the all-electric Ford Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 prototype has blazed through a quarter-mile in 8.27 seconds at 270km/h and reached 1,502 peak wheel horsepower in recent private development testing.

That is equivalent to the combined output of more than three 2021 Mustang GT V8 engines. Developed by Ford Performance in parallel to the recently unveiled Mustang Mach-E 1400 prototype, both cars were built to demonstrate Ford's technological capabilities and innovation skillset in EV technologies.

Private development testing has found the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 prototype capable of completing the quarter-mile in 8.27 seconds
Ford Performance collaborated with Cascadia Motion to power the Cobra Jet 1400. The motor-inverter packages on the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 run at 800V and up to 700A, with maximum output of 469bhp per motor.

To manage such a potent propulsion package, AEM-EV and Ford Performance jointly developed an advanced data and control system that features a control algorithm unique to the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400.

The sheer amount of power has also required a different approach with chassis tuning strategies, which MLe, Ford's build and integration collaborator for the project, has delivered with input from Ford Performance's longtime Cobra Jet build collaborators at Watson.
