Ford Unleashes A 480HP Manual Six-Speed Mach 1 Mustang For 2021

When Ford first unleashed the original Mach 1 back in 1969, the car proceeded to utterly dominate the competition circuit and completely rewrite the record books, achieving a whopping 295 speed and endurance records and winning back-to-back SCCA Manufacturer’s Rally Championships upon its debut. Today the Mach 1 now enjoys legendary status and, on the heels of a 17-year hiatus, the American firm is once-again producing a Mach 1 model — albeit in limited form.

Outfitted with a variety of high-end performance parts from the Shelby GT 350 and 500 models, the 2021 Mach 1 features a top-shelf race-grade suspension package, an ornate aluminum wheelset, and a redesigned body kit with a new grille set up, side-skirts, front splitter, under-wing-equipped belly-pan, and a small rear spoiler. Powering the newest Mach 1 is a thoroughly advanced and modern take on the classic 5.0L V8 that generates “a projected” 480hp and 420ft-lbs of torque — all fed through a Tremec 3160 6-speed manual transmission. The interior’s also been bestowed with ebony seats, a 12.3” LCD instrumentation cluster, a classic white cue ball shift knob, and engraved and embroidered Mach 1 branding throughout. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 will be available in limited numbers, with the model expected to hit dealerships in the Spring of 2021.
