Taking sports performance to the next level, the limited edition Ford Mustang Mach 1 is for those who desire more power and more agility. This track capable member of the Mustang family is no ordinary sportscar: boasting a 5.0-litre V8 engine and exceptional aerodynamics, it delivers a breath-taking 460PS at 7,250rpm and 529Nm of torque at 4,600rpm.
Every element of the new Mustang Mach 1 is designed to enhance its performance. From the front splitter and wide grille, through the low-slung chassis and sweeping roofline to the rear diffuser, every detail has been crafted to maximise airflow and increase downforce. The result is optimal track performance – and of course, a commanding presence. This striking aesthetic is complemented by a selection of paint colours, which includes Race Red, Grabber Yellow, Twister Orange, and a tone exclusive to the Mach 1: Fighter Jet Grey. Signature Satin Black side and bonnet stripes complement the racing nature of the model, and the look is finished with a choice of 19-inch Tarnished Dark alloy wheels.
The Mustang Mach 1 may be designed to perform, but it ensures you remain comfortable through every corner. Premium leather sports seats envelop you, providing optimal support, while a bespoke dark-effect instrument panel with bright-finish accents lend a luxury feel to the cockpit. The 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster makes it easy to check performance data at a glance, while a raft of driver assistance technologies provide safety and convenience.
Whether you’re on the road or the track, the Mustang’s 5.0-litre V8 engine will set your pulse racing. Although performance figures haven’t been confirmed, it’s destined to beat the standard vehicle’s 0-62mph time of 4.3 seconds, and top speed of 155mph. With a choice of six-speed manual and ten-speed automatic transmission too, you can decide how power is delivered. The Mustang Mach 1 also includes Selectable Drive Modes, including Normal, Sport and Track, enabling you to tailor the ride to your preferences and the circumstances.
If the standard performance enhancements aren’t enough for you, the Mustang Mach 1 gives you the chance to make things even more impressive. The optional Handling Package enables drivers of the manual model to increase downforce with a larger front splitter, wider wheels and more. Other upgrades include a stiffer steering shaft and performance-based Michelin PS4 tyres.
