THE MOST POWERFUL OF THE BUNCH
This street-legal speedster is going to give you as much as a racecar feel you could come across. The 5.0-liter TI-VCT V8 engine rises above the Mustang GT, producing Mustang's most powerful horsepower engine this year at 480. The beast that is under the hood of Mach 1 has been seen reaching speeds of up to 166-168 miles per hour. For comparison's sake, the Mustang's second-in-command is the GT, and has a horsepower of 460, reaching a top speed of around 155 mph. Every Mach 1 is a 6-speed manual transmission. There’s also the option of a 10-speed automatic transmission, sacrificing some of that control for a higher base price. Regardless of if you’re a seasoned driver with the know-how on how to operate a fast car the way the Mach 1 manual demands or a new driver looking to jump on the bandwagon, the Mach 1 isn’t going to discriminate. The Mach 1 is special for this very reason, and Ford wants their drivers to always remember the power that is behind the wheel of their Mach 1. Every build of the Mach 1 comes with an instrument panel badge with a unique chassis number. It’s a gorgeously displayed engraving on the interior dash that proudly displays its unique model number.
HANDLING: FAST AND SMOOTH
In addition to its top speeds, the Mach 1 provides a smooth-like-butter driving experience reliably. Between these two factors, every driver will feel like they are in total control whether it be on a morning commute or the raceway. The exclusive MagneRide Damping System responds to on-road conditions, 1,000 times per second for each damper ensuring each ride is balanced no matter what lies ahead. While an electronic line lock is for track use only, other features include a launch control pad, heavy-duty front springs, an open-air induction system, independent rear suspension, and Brembo six-piston front brake calipers with larger rotors. If you’re looking to max out its smooth drive even further without putting in the extra work yourself – Ford has you covered with an exclusive Mach 1 handling package. With this package, you’re going to get 19”x10.5'' front tires and 19”x11” rear tires that are tarnished dark-painted aluminum, adjustable strut top mounts, gurney flaps, aero splitters, and a lot more.
KEEPING YOU SAFE, SECURE, AND ENTERTAINED
The Mach 1 is jam packed with features that are upgraded from previous trims like a 9-speaker sound system with an amplifier. The Sync 3 system includes a voice-activated navigation system and Sirius XM radio. The Mach 1 is a race car that meets luxury with its driver's foot rest, auto lights, black foot petals, rain-sensing windshield wipers, leather-wrapped parking brake, and steering wheel.
It doesn’t cut corners when it comes to making sure the car is protected too, and with all its expensive features on the inside, security is a must with the Mach 1. It has an illuminated entry, perimeter alarm, and a SecuriLock passive security alarm that doesn’t start the engine unless the correct driver is behind the seat. This is in addition to an active theft system in case things go awry. We also appreciate the individual tire pressure monitoring system, taking the need away from the driver to get out of the car and check manually.
