VP Racing Fuels has been named as the official fuel supplier for Ford’s limited edition 2016 Cobra Jet.
VP Racing Fuels has been selected as the Official Fuel Supplier for Ford Motor Company’s 2016 Cobra Jet. The Cobra Jet was recently introduced at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, marking the continued evolution of the Cobra Jet as a limited edition, factory-produced turnkey race car.
Like its predecessors, the 2016 Cobra Jet is legal for NHRA-Stock and Super Stock drag racing, as well as several classes in IHRA, NMRA and NMCA. With VP as the Official Fuel Supplier, each 2016 production unit will come from the factory calibrated specifically for VP’s C16 racing fuel.
“VP Racing Fuels has consistently been the choice of our customers so it was an easy decision to meet customer demand by sourcing them on the program,” said Jesse Kershaw, drag racing parts and competition manager for Ford Performance. “Having a known consistent fuel stoichiometry is critical to our development and calibration process for the Cobra Jet and VP’s fuels deliver both the performance and consistency needed.
“We’re extremely proud to have C16 chosen to power the 2016 Cobra Jet,” said Chris Wall, chief marketing officer for VP Racing Fuels. “Just as Ford’s Cobra Jet Mustang has a longstanding legacy of power and performance, C16’s superior power and performance have made it the fuel of choice for thousands of drag racers at all levels since its introduction. In fact, VP’s blends work well in all high performance Ford vehicles, from VP101 street-legal unleaded for the supercharged Cobra Mustang and other street-legal models to a variety of off-road blends for racing applications. We look forward to working with Ford Performance and encourage its customers to contact VP’s full-time, professional Tech Support staff with any fuel related questions.”
