2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Prototype Sold At Barrett-Jackson For $200,000
2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Prototype was sold last weekend at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Las Vegas for $200 000 USD. More importantly, Ford Motor Company auctioned it with proceeds going to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society – an organization which helps the people affected by this unpredictable and disabling disease of the central nervous system.
The car was won by a spirited anonymous bidder, who is not only the proud owner of the NHRA-legal vehicle, but is also an honorary member of Team Mustang with full backstage passes to the Ford Product Development Center, Ford Design Studios and Ford Racing.
2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Prototype has under its hood a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine which is coupled to a T4 racing transmission. In addition, it sports an optional traction "wheelie" bar, 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 is more, this purpose-built factory race car has a one-of-a-kind serial number of #2014 BJMS CJXX1. The car's exterior is finished in a fiery orange satin with dark gray reflective stripes. It also carries a distinctive license plate with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's logo.
