Once seen, never forgotten – Mach 1 Mustang
From the moment it first appeared, the Mach 1 was an icon. It was introduced in 1969 as a bridge between the Mustang GT and SVT Cobra and Shelby models. Now, 50 years later, it returns to allure a new generation in a strictly limited edition, ensuring a truly unique ownership experience. The Mach 1 has been refined into the ideal driving machine.
Features that make the Mach 1 unique:
- Front grille
- Appearance Pack
- Exhaust and Diffuser
- Rear spoiler
Mustang’s iconic 5.0L V8 powertrain is upgraded with a Shelby GT350 intake. Equipped with 345kW of power and 550Nm of torque, the Mach 1 pushes the limits without pushing the driver. It is more responsive and engaging than ever before. It really creates a thrilling driving experience.
The deep 3D mesh, shark nose section, matte Mustang pony and tribute lamp elements tie the Mach 1 back to its race-focused origins. What’s quite interesting is that Ford has left convenient spots in the front grille for Mach 1 owners to install round fog lights of their choice in homage to the original 1969 Mustang Mach 1.
The appearance pack is an added option that Mach 1 owners can add with the purchase of their Mach 1. It is an exclusive inclusion only with the Fighter Jet Gray paint option. This pack includes unique black and orange hood and side stripes, orange brake calipers, and orange seatback accents.
Exhaust and Diffuser:
Mach 1 features a unique active exhaust tuning that entails 4.5-inch quad exhaust tips. It is perforated to enhance sound quality.
The rear spoiler is a performance made spoiler in low gloss magnetic. It isn’t simply decorative piece, but it helps contribute to the Mach 1’s remarkable handling.
