DEARBORN, Michigan — The 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet prototype will cross the auction block on September 28 with proceeds benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, according to Ford and Barrett-Jackson.

The winning bidder will get backstage passes to the Ford Product Development Center, Ford Design Studios and Ford Racing, along with training at Roy Hill's Drag Racing School in Sophia, North Carolina.

The Mustang Cobra Jet prototype is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine mated to a T4 racing transmission.

The unique car gets a Fiery Orange satin finish exterior paint treatment with dark gray reflective stripes. It also gets a license plate with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's logo.

The car, which is not street legal, sits on exclusive Cobra Jet-branded wheels with lightweight racing brakes. The interior features custom Cobra Jet-branded Recaro racing seats and a safety cage.

Ford said the 2014 Mustang Cobra Jet is "NHRA competition-ready."

"This Cobra Jet is an awesome factory turn-key performer at the drag strip," said Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer, in a statement. "It's capable of approximately 9-second quarter mile runs as delivered from Ford."

Edmunds says: Barrett-Jackson isn't offering an estimate on what the Mustang Cobra Jet prototype will fetch at auction, but you can be sure it will command top dollar.
