Default Ford Racing debuts twin-turbo Mustang Cobra Jet Concept

Hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng
Quote:
Last year at SEMA, Chevrolet absolutely stole the show with its COPO Camaro Concept. Not to be upstaged by their Bowtie counterparts, the boys over at the Blue Oval have countered with the car you see here, the Mustang Cobra Jet Concept. Built by Ford Racing and based on the 2013 Mustang Cobra Jet, this one-off racer features a pair of twin turbochargers attached to a 5.0-liter V8 using the same technology as Ford's EcoBoost engines.

While the current crop of Cobra Jets are plenty fast, running eight-second quarter miles in NHRA trim, Ford Racing says that the 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger currently used requires as much as 100 horsepower to operate – horsepower that isn't being delivered to the meaty rear tires. The turbos, however, provide a much lower parasitic loss in power. Relatively small turbos – similar to the ones used on the Focus ST – were also used on the concept, ensuring that there would be as little lag as possible.

Will we see a production version of the twin-turbo Mustang Cobra Jet Concept in the future? Perhaps, especially as the next generation Mustang has long been rumored to get an EcoBoost engine.

Cobra Jet will never be a street legal car. But could a TT GT500 or Mach1 be in our future? It is obvious they have done some testing already.

this might be a good thread to mention that a stock longblock, full weight BOSS with a KB blower went 202 mph at the Texas Mile.
and Lethal's "worlds fastest" ZR1 went 205-207 mph, for reference.

Throw a Ford badge on the ZR1 and it would probably hit 230 mph.

There have been rumors that a EcoBoost Coyote would power the next gen GT500. With Ford stating that the Cobra was to go after the big dogs, this is promising.
