Last year, Ford revealed its plans to build the all-electric Mach-E. Aside from the shockwaves that the company’s announcement made within the automotive industry, aftermarket tuning companies saw an inevitable opportunity (and potential) that they couldn’t pass up. For some, like Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s RTR Vehicles, Ford was already on the prowl — and today, they’ve revealed their gymkhana-approved Mustang Mach-E 1400 Prototype.
The Ford x RTR All-Electric Mustang Mach-E 1400 Prototype is a monstrous platform that’s been built to burn rubber. Whether it’s on the tightly-contrived turns of the company’s test track, or in front of masses of onlookers as it takes on the world’s most iconic circuits, the Mach-E is certainly a sight to behold. It boasts a satisfying 1,400 peak horsepower, around 2,300-pounds of downforce (at 160 mph), and an insane, seven-motor layout, giving it the ability to transition from all-wheel-drive to rear- or front-wheel drive, depending on its application. But the pony car’s all-electric powerplant isn’t the only thing that makes it special. It also takes advantage of high-performance components, like track-spec Brembo brakes, a hydraulic handbrake system, and regenerative braking to keep it functioning longer than its counterparts.
