Post Video: A Ford Mustang Cobra Jet takes on a Ford Fiesta rally car at the drag strip



The Mustang Cobra Jet or NASCAR might come to mind when you think of Ford Racing, but the last few years the motorsports arm of the Blue Oval has been heavily involved in rally racing here in the United States as well. Using heavily modified Ford Fiestas hatchbacks converted to AWD, Ford Racing has dominated the Global Rallycross Championship since its inception. Think there’s lots of rubbing paint in NASCAR? You should try watching GRC.

The little Fiesta ST is quite a quick little race car. With its turbocharged 2.0-liter engine producing 550+ horsepower it can scoot from 0-60 mph in less than two seconds flat. That sounds crazy fast, but is it as quick as the Mustang Cobra Jet? You might think this is a race that would never happen, but after a GRC race in Charlotte Ford Racing took Tanner Foust’s Fiestas over to zMAX Dragway to put it heads up against a 2013 Mustang Cobra Jet from Roy Hill’s drag racing school.

So who wins the drag race? You’ll have to watch for yourself to find out. Just click the play button below.
