Almost silently and without using a single liter of petrol to set an acceleration record: The Ford Performance team is aiming for a new record on the classic quarter mile with the newly developed, purely battery-powered Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 dragster. The factory racing car is expected to cover the 402,34-meter distance in around eight seconds and, from a standing start, reach a top speed beyond 274 km / h (170 miles per hour). For this purpose, the prototype's electric motor provides a system output of more than 1.400 hp. The maximum torque, with which the single piece demonstrates the potential of electrically powered vehicles, sounds almost even more impressive: Over 1.500 Newton meters (1.100 ft.-lbs.), Which are constantly present, provide a brute boost.

"Ford has always used motorsport as a stage to present and promote technical innovations”Emphasizes Dave Pericak, director of iconic vehicles. "Electric drives open up a completely new playground for us to demonstrate the performance of this technology. We are pushing the all-electric Cobra Jet 1400 to the limit and are looking forward to demonstrating its performance in this special year from a product perspective with the market debut of the Mustang Mach-E electric SUV model.“The new Mustang Mach-E is the first purely electrically powered member of the legendary Mustang family. Like the Cobra Jet 1400, it shows the enormous potential hidden in the combination of modern future technology and the sports car history that has grown over decades. At the same time, the name of the electric racing car is also a tribute to the Mustang Cobra Jet dragster variant introduced by Ford in 1968, which has since won countless victories on the quarter-mile acceleration track known as "drag strip" and is still a popular racing device in the hands of private customers is.

"The Cobra Jet 1400 presented us with a completely new challenge, which we gladly accepted”Explains Mark Rushbrook, Director of Ford Performance, responsible for Ford's worldwide motorsport activities. "With this project we were able to integrate a purely electric drive into a racing car with which we had a lot of experience - so we knew numerous measurement and performance values, which we naturally wanted to improve. It was a fantastic task and hopefully only the first of many that we can solve with the Ford Performance Motorsport team.“The world debut of the new Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 will take place later this year at a dragster event in the United States, during which the purely electric racing car will demonstrate its potential to fans, the media and competitors. Until then, Ford will complete further test drives with the new super sports car.
