2014 Mustang Cobra Jet Prototype To Be Auctioned For CharitySaturday, September 14, 2013 9:27 by Arman Barari
Ford is sending yet another unique car under the hammer for a good cause. This time the car in question is a one of a kind 2014 Mustang Cobra Jet Prototype which will be auctioned off by Barret-Jackson in Las Vegas to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Built to NHRA competition specs, the 2014 Mustang Cobra Jet Prototype is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 mated to a T4 racing transmission, and boasts an optional traction “wheelie” bar, 8.50 ET certified chrome-moly safety cage, exclusive Cobra Jet-branded Weld wheels, three-link rear suspension, lightweight racing brakes, 9-inch rear axle, and custom Cobra-branded Recaro seats.
What really set is apart, though, is a unique serial number of #2014 BJMS CJXX1. That special livery with fiery orange satin finish and dark gray reflective stripes also helps.
The winner of the auction will not only get the car, Ford is also offering him training at Roy Hill’s Drag Racing School in Sophia, N.C., tour of the Ford Product Development Center and Ford Racing, and even getting immortalized in a future Mustang book and documentary.
“We’re proud to offer the opportunity for a serious competitor to up their game with this Mustang Cobra Jet,” says Steve Ling, North America car marketing manager for Ford. “But, just as important, we’re honored the proceeds will support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s work with those living with this disabling disease of the central nervous system. Through our long-standing relationship with Barrett-Jackson, we continue to support charities through exceptional vehicle sales.”
