The all-electric Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 prototype has exceeded its own lofty expectations in Ford’s private development testing.

The Cobra Jet 1400 reached 1,502 peak wheel horsepower and ran the quarter mile in 8.27 seconds at 168 miles per hour in recent testing.

“Since revealing the car, we’ve continued to fine-tune it and now know we’re just scratching the surface of what we may be able to achieve with this much electric horsepower in a drag racing setting,” said Mark Rushbrook, global director, Ford Performance Motorsports.

Ford Performance collaborated with Cascadia Motion to power the Cobra Jet 1400. With four PN-250-DZR inverters coupled to a pair of DS-250-115s, giving four motors total and spinning at up to 10,000 revolutions per minute. These motor-inverter packages run at 800 volts and up to 700 amps, with maximum output of 350kW per motor.
