AutoBlog: SEMA 2009: Ford unveils 2010 Mustang Cobra Jet, now with optional aluminum block

2010 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet - Click above for high-res image gallery

When Ford built a 50-unit run of the 2008 Mustang Cobra Jet last year, the program was a huge success with all the cars selling out well before production started. With the factory-built drag racing cars easily proving their worth at the nation's 1/4 mile tracks this year, doing a follow-up was a no brainer. After teasing the new car with testing photos and videos for the last several months, the 2010 FR500CJ is having its coming out party in Las Vegas for the 2009 SEMA Show.

The next 50-unit run will again be built on the regular Mustang assembly line at the Auto Alliance plant in Flat Rock, MI with the engines being bolted together at the Romeo engine plant. The 2010 model is more than just bolting the same hardware into an updated body shell. A year's worth of experience with the '08 Cobra Jet has allowed current owners to share feedback with Ford Racing that has been fed into the updated car.

We managed to grab some photos of the 2010 Cobra Jet on the show floor just ahead of its official live debut tomorrow, so check out both the official and live photos below or read on to learn about the updates for the new model.

Like I've said before, the newest Mustang I'd like to own was built in the summer of 1970 when Ford began tooling up for the 1971 models.

The Camaro is a MUCH better looking car...as is the Challenger. And the Challenger makes a natural, nice transition to a convertible-important to guys like me who drive to work with the top down in November!

Glad Ford does this...now can we get GM and Chryco to do the same?
