It is official that the Ford Mustang Mach 1 will go into production, and will be released preferably in the upcoming year 2021. Ford tested the car out for the first time, and although major parts of the car were concealed, a few details were visible during the test run.
What stood the most out in terms of design is the Mach 1’s circular air inlets or foglight holes flanking the galloping horse emblem in the grille. The design is reminiscent of the original 1969 Mustang Mach 1.
On its back, there are huge quad exhaust pipes and a rear wing, very similar to the Shelby GT350’s. The wheels feature a multi-spoke 19-inch wheel and surrounding the frame of the wheel is the ultra-sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
The events that conspired in recent times, the Mach 1 will replace the Bullitt in the lineup as the limited-production juiced Mustang GT.
What this means is that the upcoming car will be placed as the Bullitt’s higher-output 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 upgrading the horsepower to 480 which is an extra 20 over what the Ford machines usually offer as its standard GT. The pictures of the test run also reveal that this additional horsepower will just be the few of many new features that are to be added.
Nothing substantial is known about the release date or where it will be released. Even the pricing range is yet to be announced. However, since the Mach 1 falls somewhere between the GT and Shelby models, Mach 1 could be priced somewhere around $50,000. There is also the chance that the pricing range may go up higher than expected but below the GT500. Ford is yet to make an official announcement.
