Earlier today Ford Racing sent us over these new images of the first two 2013 Cobra Jet production engines recently assembled at the Romeo Engine Plant. The two 5.0-liter V8s will soon be heading over to the Auto Alliance International (AAI) assembly plant – the same factory that the production Ford Mustangs are built – where they will be installed in 2013 Cobra Jets.
