Could this be the 2013 Mustang Cobra Jet that was recently spied at one of Ford’s private tracks in Michigan? Its quite possible as Autoblog spies got the drop on this Mustang dragster which appears to be next generation Cobra Jet. Since it was reintroduced in 2008, the Cobra Jet has been upgraded almost every year with engine or body enhancements so it comes as no surprise another upgrade is in the works.
The first thing that jumps out at you is the rather large cyclops looking hood scoop mounted front and center to a GT500 front end, the rear end is from a Mustang GT. Another giveaway is the Hoosier slicks in the rear and skinnies up front while the exhaust terminates just behind the front tires. Its to early to tell whats lurking under the hood but expect something new for 2013. Check out all the spy photos below.
