Track-ready Ford Mustang Mach 1 hits the UK
The 450hp Ford Mustang Mach 1, the most track-capable Mustang ever to be sold in the UK will arrive this summer.
First introduced in 1969, the Mustang Mach 1 extended the performance of the Mustang GT model with a number of enhancements including more powerful V8 engines, competition suspension and bespoke styling. The first-generation Mach 1 set 295 speed and endurance records at the Bonneville Salt Flats, and racing teams using the Mach 1 earned back-to-back SCCA Manufacturer’s Rally Championships in 1969 and 1970. New or updated versions were introduced in 1971, 1974, and 2003. More than 300,000 Mustang Mach 1 vehicles have been produced since 1969.
A boost in performance is complementedby enhanced aerodynamics, a specially-calibrated 5.0-litre V8 engine and uprated cooling for improved track capability. The Mach 1 is also the first production Mustang in Europe available with a high-performance TREMEC six-speed manual transmission with an upgraded oil-cooler system for high-demand performance driving.
Specially-calibrated MagneRide 2 dampers and bespoke springs, anti-roll bars and bush specifications offer improved control and response under high cornering loads. Retuned electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) software enables the Mach 1 to offer the most precise steering of any Mustang in Europe.
