2021 Mustang MACH 1

2021 Mustang MACH 1

When merging become a good idea

fordmuscle.com, a true authority in USA for what concerns all the Ford Mustang News, released today a full review of the new Ford Mustang 2021 Mach 1 , that will replace the BULITT in the performance segnment worldwide.

Yes, WORLDWIDE. Because the car will be exported in almost all country of the world, exactly as the Bullitt. Means also right-hand drive versions, of course.

We had to Be extremely honest: after being hitted in the face with the “MACH-E”, we have some doubts about the release of this car.

The 50th anniversary of the Mach 1, celebrated the 6th of July 2019, supposed to be the best date to introduce the Mach 1 to the public view. Anyhow ford decided to launch the Mach-E, instead.

But seems the need of a new Performance Model that replace the Bullitt and the online petitions versus the Mach-E, have shaken something in Ford Marketing people. 17 years after the SN95 edition, the MACH 1 s ready for the Take off!

But How they create this beauty?

Merging a mustang GT with a Shelby GT350. The test field of this combination has been the Bullitt, that got a lot of parts from the Shelby: intake manifold, throttle body, cold air intake, magnetic suspensions.

The result has been absolutely brilliant (we are reviewing Ford Italy BULLITT 2020 press car, and it has been amazing since now), and now Ford is Bringing back another Myth, to push the Mustang Legacy in the new era.

Mach 1 stock interiors

Inside, upgrades are headlined by the new Dark Spindrift instrument panel with aluminum accents along with dedicated doorsill plates, an updated splash screen in the LCD cluster, and a dash badge engraved with the chassis number. On leather interior cars, the Ebony seats wear a heritage-inspired accent stripe, while manual-transmission Mach 1s will have the same cue-ball shifter as the Bullitt.


MACH 1 with recaro seats

The Handling package should also come with the recaro seats, but, with this retrò looking feeling, we will choose the standard ones.



The car is capable of 487 cv at 7,000 rpm, and 570 Nm of torque at 4,600 rpm as standard version.

For the Export(EU) we have to consider 456 cv and 529 Nm, due to European road taxes and emission standards.

Which is the improvement, compared to the Bullitt, then?

The engine oil cooler, that raises cooling capacity by an extra 50% is Combined with engine oil and transmission oil heat exchangers from the Shelby GT500 ,with a rear differential cooler and lower diffuser, also scored from the Shelby, this car is ready for intense track days.


For all the customers that wants to have more performance, Ford Engineers created the handling package. this package, with the dicated front fascia and the rear gurney flap, guarantees a 22%  more downforce than a Mustang GT, fitted with the Performance Pack Level 1 option.

Moreover, the package (available only for the 6 speed manual transmission) includes 19×10.5 inches in front and 19×11 inches  spider net wheels, with a black finishing.
