Ford's drag-strip-ready Mustang Cobra Jet is back for 2014, and it's sporting a few changes to make it even better – both in competition and while sitting still. Rolling off the assembly line ready for duty in the NHRA Stock or Super Stock classes, production of the 2014 Cobra Jet is limited to just 50 units.

Racing upgrades for 2014 include the addition of a new three-speed transmission and a parachute mount, and while these will make the car better in the quarter mile, the Cobra Jet's new colors will make it look better tearing down the track. Buyers can now get their racecars painted up in Gotta Have-It Green or a custom, Cobra Jet-exclusive matte black hue. Ford and Ford Racing have already teamed up to make this an incredible factory drag racer with a full rollcage, massive slicks, a race-tuned suspension setup and a supercharged 5.0-liter V8. Now, if only wheelie bars came standard...

Unlike the confusing third-party ordering system announced for the COPO Camaro, all you need to snatch up a 2014 Cobra Jet is $97,990 and good timing (as the cars will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis). Ordering opens up next month with production commencing in July. Check out the press release below.

      I wish they made more then just 50! A 1,000 would be great!

        Given the prep work that goes into these cars, 1000 is probably not realistic. These don\'t roll of the assembly line with all the modifications made to them, I\'d guess that a lot of the work is done off-line by hand. At that price point, there probably aren\'t enough well-funded race teams that want to run a Ford that can buy up 1000 copies.

      Those look like Goodyear Eagle drag slicks, to me.

      Like or disliake Mustangs, this would be fun to race down the quarter-mile time and time again! Wish my GT sounded like these!

      Straight forward and bad ass. That's the only description you need of a CJ.

      Ford has done a great job with these cars and that's coming from a Dodge fan. So far the Dodge Challenger Drag Pak cars have had the most success in competition, but truth be told, in supercharged form, the Fords are faster than the carburetor equipped Challengers. I'm anxious to see if Dodge goes the supercharger route to regain dominance. I do know a street legal supercharged HEMI is coming for the next generation SRT Challenger in 2014, so this move would make sense for marketing purposes. In any case the Mustangs are hot as are the Challengers and Camaros and the competition between brands just makes things better.

      Is it wrong that I think this should have 1200hp available instead of the overpriced Shelby? Just imagine, itd be doing low 7/high 6 second passes all day.

      Is this a track only car?
