After 17-years, the iconic Ford Mustang is up for an update with the all-new Mustang Mach 1 fastback coupe is ready to return. The carmaker said the iconic pony car is going to be launched early next year. The new Mustang Mach 1 would hide a 480 horsepower limited-edition Mach 1 which sets a new standard of 5.0-liter V8 track-ready performance in the Mustang lineup while celebrating the original model’s aggressive aerodynamic and handling enhancements.
The American car manufacturer had officially confirmed plans to return the Mustang Mach 1 at the end of last month. At the same time, several official pictures were published in a partially covered car during tests. Now the camouflage has been removed, revealing key details of the car.
“Bold styling, great acceleration, and speed – Mach 1 says it all,” said Jim Farley, Ford’s chief operating officer. “This is one of those special Mustangs that truly brings a smile to the faces of our owners, enthusiasts, and fans – including me – so there’s never been a better time to bring back Mach 1 and have it go global too.”
The all-new Mach 1’s grille harkens back to the original with a deep 3-D mesh, shark-nosed section and faux lamp elements. Flanking the fascia are new side grilles below each turn signal lamp. A low-gloss Magnetic pony badge is centered on the grille. Low-gloss magnetic and black accents throughout the vehicle provide a premium look while staying true to Mach 1’s bold, muscular heritage, including low-gloss Magnetic mirror caps and rear spoiler.
New 19-inch x 9.5-inch, and 19-inch x 10-inch five-spoke Tarnished Dark-painted aluminum wheels are a modern version of the classic Magnum 500 style wheels. Handling Package vehicles come standard with unique, wider 19-inch x 10.5-inch front, and 19-inch x 11-inch rear Tarnished Dark-painted aluminum wheels.
Exterior colour options include the Mach 1 exclusive Fighter Jet Gray, as well as Iconic Silver, Shadow Black, Oxford White, Velocity Blue, Twister Orange, Race Red and Grabber Yellow.
