New Reveal At SEMA : Ford FR500 ‘Cobra Jet’ Mustang drag package

We just saw the F-150 raptor, and now a Mustang! Don't get to excited, it's still the current one. So if you think that your current Mustang can't do well on the drag strip , then you own it to yourself to get this 'Cobra Jet' drag package.
First off, Ford throws everything inside into the garbage, and replace a racing seat and a roll cage. So inside, there isn't any back seats, no radio, no cruise control not even a tilting steering wheel. Outside, you get some cobra stickers and Ford Racing badges. You'll also notice the huge, wide drag wheels. But no true drag car without some serious rock under the hood. And this one wouldn't disappoint. You'll be getting the same 5.4L supercharged V8 at the GT500. So with 500 hp and light-weight body, this thing gives some panache. No official 0-60MPH time yet, but expect it to cover a quarter-mile in about 10.5 seconds. But you should open you wallet for this kind of car. This package costs a dizzying 70,000$.
But it doesn't finish here. Along with this Mustang, we've got Dodge's / Mopar Challenger SRT8 drag car. Both are strip out drag versions of their iconic brothers. Both pack up around 500 hp. Both approved for drag racing by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). And they cost nearly the same . So which will be best ? That's what we're going to find out when sales starts soon .
