Mustang fans will rejoice that the limited-edition, high-performance Mustang Mach 1 will be available to customers in Australia for the first time ever in 2021. The high performance icon will be the best-handling factory-produced Mustang to reach Australian shores. Sharing some features with the Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT500, the Mach 1 will be the most track capable Mustang available in Australia. Performance is boosted to a level worthy of the iconic Mach 1 moniker with enhanced aerodynamics, a specially-calibrated 5.0-litre V8 engine and uprated cooling for improved track capability.
The Mustang Mach 1 features a 345kW version of Ford’s 5.0-litre V8 all-aluminium petrol engine – specially modified for improved performance both on the road and on track. Peak power is delivered at 7,500 rpm, with peak torque of 556 Nm delivered at 4,600 rpm.
An auxiliary engine oil-cooler, shared with the Shelby GT350, works in partnership with a new engine oil filter adaptor to ensure optimum oil flow and consistent performance under high loads. The Mach 1’s uniquely tuned Active Valve Performance Exhaust features quad 4.5-inch tips to further enhance the unmistakable V8 soundtrack.
The Mach 1 is also the first production Mustang in Australia available with a high-performance Tremec six-speed manual transmission, featuring rev-matching technology for seamless down-shifts and an upgraded oil-cooler system for high-demand performance driving. Enthusiasts can alternatively specify Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission, featuring an upgraded oil-cooler and recalibrated software for optimised performance in road and track driving conditions.
A unique suspension setup further enhances road performance and track-readiness. Specially-calibrated MagneRide dampers and bespoke springs, anti-roll bars and bush specifications deliver improved control and response under high cornering loads.
In addition to its performance credentials, the Mustang Mach 1 brings exterior design that recalls the iconic Mach 1 Mustangs of the 1960s and 1970s, with bold bonnet stripes, performance-derived body-styling and unique 19-inch alloy wheels. The limited-edition model is available in a unique set of five body colour, stripe and contrast-line combinations, echoing the distinctive design of the original car. Each Mustang Mach 1 is individually numbered with a distinctive plaque according to its chassis number.
The interior is distinguished by an Ebony colour scheme and Dark Engine turned aluminium detailing, while the leather sports seats feature Metal Grey stitching. Recaro leather sports seats are also available as an option for an additional level of comfort for the racing enthusiasts. Each Mustang Mach 1 features a unique dashboard badge featuring the Mach 1 logo and chassis number, complemented by unique sill plates and a new start-up display on the 12-inch digital instrument display cluster.
Standard comfort and convenience technologies include heated and cooled front seats, Ford’s SYNC 3 connectivity system, a premium 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen Sound System, and FordPass Connect embedded modem for convenient connectivity.
