2013 Mustang Cobra Jet to Get Optional 5.0L V8

Among the buzz already surrounding the 2013 Mustang, Ford has announced that the specialized Cobra Jet drag version will be part of the lineup. However, like the more mainstream variants, it will feature a number of updates. The 5.4 quad cam V8 will return, in either naturally aspirated or supercharged forms, but joining it on the options list is a version of the 5.0 'Coyote' engine, found in the current Mustang GT.

The reason for this, according to Ford Racing's Jesse Kershaw, is that it will allow the '13 CJ to compete in a wider variety of NHRA sanctioned events than previous versions of this car.

Other changes on the 2013 model include revisions to the CJ's suspension, steering, even the roll cage design and seats in an effort to balance improved capability while minimizing mass. "We're looking at ways to cost-effectively take weight out of the Cobra Jet," said Kershaw "and are also paying close attention to the final price. Based on our research we know where the car needs to be performance and price wise."

The 2013 Mustang Cobra Jet is slated to make it's debut at this year's Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show, which runs from December 1-3 at the Orange County Convention Center, in Orlando, Florida, with production likely to begin sometime next year.
