Ford organized a party a couple of days ago for celebrating the arrival of the automaker’s supercharged Mustang coupes that are built especially for drag racing. This party was held at the Auto Alliance Mustang factory in Flat Rock, Michigan where the company said that this Mustang model is the fastest accelerating production car in the world.

According to the automaker, when pressed, the Mustang Cobra Jet will do a 60-foot launch in a blazing 1.3 seconds, and the quarter-mile in less than 10 seconds.

The proud new owners of these cars came all the way from Alberta, Calgary and Puerto Rico to participate at this special ceremony and of course, take delivery of their new drag racers.

The 2012 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet is not street legal as it was designed as an out-of-the-box drag racing solution for those of us that are not interested in spending years for engineering and refining our own racer. The newest addition to the 2012 model is the aluminum-block V8 5.4-liter, along with a modified suspension, the low-drag racing brakes, black anodized rims and Goodyear racing slicks. Customers can choose from either a 2.3-liter TVS supercharger or a more powerful 4.0-liter Ford Racing Whipple supercharger.

Both of these superchargers help the car’s engine develop 425 hp, making them National Hot Rod Association-complaint. However, they can be easily tweaked to output a lot more horsepower, without any difficulties. The 2010MY fitted with the TVS unit can do the quarter-mile in less than 10 seconds, while the one with the Whipple supercharger can do it in under nine seconds.
