This isn't any old Stang. It's a 2010 FR500CJ – that's CJ for ‘Cobra Jet' – made by Ford Racing and designed to go straight from showroom to dragstrip. Cobra Jets have been launching themselves down quarter-mile strips since the late 60s, and this latest car will have about 425hp and cost around $75,000.

Ford Racing built 50 cars to meet NHRA's minimum car-count standards. Ford delivers the Cobra Jet cars with a glaring 425 horsepower, a rating far under the combination's potential thanks to Ford Racing electronically controlling output so that it fits in the rules. The engine is a GT500 powerplant with a TVS blower, larger throttle body and MAF sensor, and long-tube headers amongst some other minor details. The 425 horse rating is far less than what that engine could produce.
