Ford will be putting its money where its mouth is on Labor Day weekend, as the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 hits the track for the first time. Projected to crush the quarter mile in the 8s, the Cobra Jet 1400 will have some big cheques to cash.

Naturally, there’s good reason to believe Ford will be able to get there. Its electric powertrain produces 1,400 hp and 1,100 lb-ft of torque. And as we well know by now, electric motors produce their torque instantly and often without any gears, so there’ll be a lot of strain on those fat Mickey Thompsons.

The runs will be made at the NHRA US Nationals taking place from September 3 to 6 at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis.

The Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 was built in concert with MLe Racecars (builders, designers, integrator and tuner), Watson Engineering (chassis support and development), AEM EV (software and motor calibration), and Cascade (who supplied the inverter and motor).
