2010 Cobra Jet Mustang Review

Arguably the strongest and most fearsome version of the 2010 Ford Mustang, the 2010 Cobra Jet is a force to be reckoned with. Ford Racing went the extra mile to make sure this car looks, sounds, feels and performs great. Here is our recap of the most recent Cobra Jet model and all it has to offer.

The Looks:

This as-is, ready-to-race Mustang, gives onlookers the impression that it is as fast as it looks. The side view mirrors have been replaced with Ford Racing block-off plates to help streamline the look, along with flush mounted quarter window louvers from Silver Horse Racing.

Custom styled Cobra Jet wheels, along with a Cobra Jet trunk emblem and decal set give a different look to this very different breed of Mustang. To top it all off, the Cobra Jet’s large cowl hood makes this snake look poised to strike!

The Feel:

To go along with the great looks of this Mustang, you need control. That’s why Ford Racing made sure the 2010 Cobra Jet has everything it needs to stay responsive while keeping all four wheels on the ground.

An upgraded suspension kit, added supports for the radiator and driveshaft and drag race coil springs help give this race-bred Mustang a strong frame to rely on while flying on the track. Internally, a roll cage has been installed to help stabilize the frame even more and keep the driver safe in the event of an accident at the track.

The automatic brakes have been swapped out for a lighter and smaller set of manual brakes to help make room for the massive engine. Along these same lines, the Cobra Jet also features a manual steering rack. These changes help make room under the hood and keep the overall weight of the car down. A light-weight aluminum driveshaft was also added to shave a few more pounds off.

The POWER:

At the heart of this racing machine is an impressive 5.4 liter supercharged Cobra Jet engine, built by Ford Racing. Based off of the 2010 Shelby GT500 engine, the Cobra Jet engine features a precision billet machined throttle body, A/C delete and a twin-vortex supercharger.

In order to keep this monster of an engine from over-heating, Ford Racing has also included a 123 millimeter air flow sensor and a supercharger intercooler kit. Add to this an automated system that helps cool off the engine during high speeds, and you have a Mustang ready to turn heads at it flies by, all without breaking a sweat!

For 2010, Ford Racing has hit a home-run with the Cobra Jet. The perfect mix of power, performance and appearance has been achieved in this re-envisioned powerhouse from the past.
