Ford To Bring Back Mustang Cobra Jet Factory Drag Racer

1968_428cobrajet.jpg

Ford will be resurrecting the Mustang Cobra Jet nameplate for a return this summer as a modern day factory drag racer. The new Cobra Jet will be powered by the Romeo 605 5.4L V8 crate motor from Ford Racing which is similar to the GT500 engine. The Romeo 605 is built at FoMoCo Romeo engine plant niche assembly line with the upgraded TVS supercharger producing 605 horsepower & 550 lb-ft of torque. The Romeo 605 is the most powerful modular engine ever built on a Ford production line. The new Cobra Jet will come factory detuned to just 400 horsepower to meet NHRA rules. Ford plans to build only 50 of these factory drag racer’s for a handful of dealers. The new Cobra Jet is expected to be priced at $69,900 with dealer markups through the roof.

For a little history lesson, the Cobra Jet was introduced in 1968 making 2008 the 40 anniversary. Back in 1968 there was an initial production run of 50 Cobra Jet’s inspired by Ford Dealer and Mustang racer Bob Tasca which could be why they are only producing 50 this time. Eventually with the popularity of the Cobra Jet’s in 1968 Ford ended up producing a few thousand of them.

New men’s fragrance Mustang Blue comes from Aramis and Designer Fragrances, the same company which brought us the first Mustang cologne. The new Mustang Blue men’s cologne is the definition of a confident, sexy and powerful Mustang man.

Mustang Blue fragrance for men will launch in June 2008 to retailers nationwide including Sears, JCPenney and Kohl’s and rollout to mass merchandisers and chain drug stores in July of 2008. Prices for the cologne will start relatively inexpensive with a 1.0 oz. cologne spray retailing for $20 and go up to a 3.4 oz. spray retailing for $32.

“The Mustang fragrance had a tremendous reception from Mustang fans as well as others who appreciate the iconic American brand,” says Robin Mason, Vice President of Global Marketing. “The first Mustang fragrance appealed to his bold, daring and legendary side as he drove through the west. Mustang Blue further defines the Mustang man by exploring his adventuresome side via a drive along the California coastline. Mustang Blue will appeal to men who aspire to the freedom of the outdoors, the power of the engine and the confidence to show off their sexier side. Anything is possible in a Mustang,” adds Mason.

“We are pleased to partner again with Aramis and Designer Fragrances because they are global leaders in this arena. Together we launched the first Mustang fragrance which became a natural lifestyle extension of this iconic American brand. We tapped into a new demand for fragrance that appealed to the Mustang Man and the Mustang fan base, “ states John Nens, Director, Global Brand Licensing, Ford Motor Company. “We are very excited to launch Mustang Blue because it continues to celebrate the Mustang Man on a new journey,”

Mustang Blue, The New Men’s Fragrance

“Fresh, aquatic ingredients infused with sage, basil and sandalwood combine to make a clean, clear and compelling fragrance,” says Trudi Loren, Vice President, Corporate Fragrance Development Worldwide for The Estée Lauder Companies Inc. “Mustang Blue confidently accentuates who the Mustang man is; a man who knows how to enjoy the adventure of life.”

The fragrance is infused with mint and basil to boost the tantalizing top. At the heart is an aromatic exhale of geranium, sage and artemisia. A cool and crisp intensity radiates from a high-spirited essence of pine and cedarleaf, while the perfect freshness that features spicy, wet cardamom, clove leaf and cypress transports the senses through an intriguing voyage.

The sensual masculine back infuses rugged sandalwood with an intoxicating earthy blend of hay and patchouli to create a super sexy, masculine scent.

The Mustang Blue fragrance line includes: 1.0oz/30ml Cologne Spray (SRP: $20); 1.7oz/50ml Cologne Spray (SRP: $25); 3.4oz/100ml Cologne Spray (SRP: $32).
