  Ford Motor Company will join Barrett-Jackson among the Las Vegas lights from Sept. 26-28, 2013 to sell the star of the show – a one-of-a-kind prototype of the NHRA competition-ready 2014 Mustang Cobra Jet. The Cobra Jet will be sold at no reserve on Saturday, Sept. 28, with proceeds benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
  The NHRA-legal vehicle can instantly make competitors a force in the sport. This unique car is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 mated to a T4 racing transmission, and boasts an optional traction “wheelie” bar, 8.50 ET certified chrome-moly safety cage, exclusive Cobra Jet-branded Weld wheels, three-link rear suspension, lightweight racing brakes, 9-inch rear axle, and custom Cobra-branded Recaro seats. The purpose-built factory race car was the prototype for the 2014 model year racer, and carries a unique serial number of #2014 BJMS CJXX1. Clad in a fiery orange satin finish with dark gray reflective stripes, it also bears a distinctive license plate with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s logo.
  “The money to found Ford Motor Company came from Henry Ford’s only race as a driver, so you could say motorsports is in our blood,” says Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer. “This Cobra Jet is an awesome factory turn-key performer at the drag strip. It’s capable of approximately nine-second quarter mile runs as delivered from Ford. And we will include several once-in-a-lifetime experiences to the winning bidder. For example, few get to see the inner workings of the Ford Product Development Center and Ford Racing to learn how to leverage the Cobra Jet’s power. This information can then be taken to the track to immediately break into competitive racing.”
  The winning bidder also will enjoy:
Training at Roy Hill’s Drag Racing School in Sophia, N.C.
Tour of the Ford Product Development Center and Ford Racing with Mustang Chief Engineer Dave Pericak, including a backstage pass into the Ford Design Studios
Their experience captured for a future Mustang book and documentary
  “We’re proud to offer the opportunity for a serious competitor to up their game with this Mustang Cobra Jet,” says Steve Ling, North America car marketing manager for Ford. “But, just as important, we’re honored the proceeds will support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s work with those living with this disabling disease of the central nervous system. Through our long-standing relationship with Barrett-Jackson, we continue to support charities through exceptional vehicle sales.”
In fact, last month at the Hot August Nights Auction Presented by Barrett-Jackson, Ford auctioned the last retail 2014MY Ford Shelby GT500 convertible to support the Brain Injury Association of America, an organization championed by 1963 Indianapolis 500 winner Parnelli Jones. Other organizations supported by   Ford have included the Carroll Shelby Foundation and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
During the auction, Ford will offer the public Ride-and-Drive and hot-laps experiences at the Mandalay Bay Event Center. The Ride-and-Drive will feature Ford’s elite stable of vehicles. For power junkies, the Shelby GT500, Boss 302 Mustang, Focus ST, Fiesta ST, and Shelby American-built GT350, GT500 Super Snake and Shelby Focus ST will make a rare appearance at the hot-laps experience.
