Ford Australia has confirmed specs and pricing for the limited edition Mustang Mach 1 ahead of a local arrival early next year.
Limited to 700 units, the Mustang Mach 1 is priced from $83,365 plus on-road costs regardless of the choice of transmission.
Power comes from the naturally-aspirated 5.0-litre V8 engine producing 345kW and 556Nm which matches the outputs of the Mustang Bullitt. It’s matched to a Tremec six-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The Mach 1 also gets a newly designed front end, plus Ford Performance parts from the Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT500 models.
Integrated into the Mach 1 engine are revised Shelby GT350 components including the intake manifold, oil filter adapter and engine oil cooler, increasing engine oil cooling capability by 50 per cent.
To enhance track endurance, two side heat exchangers – one to cool engine oil, the other transmission oil – as well as a rear axle cooling system and lower diffuser have been borrowed from the Shelby GT500.
Ford says the car’s most aerodynamically important upgrade is the new underbelly pan that extends 20 inches further rearward than on a Mustang GT to smooth and increase the airflow under the front of the car.
Large underwing features in the belly pan increase downforce, while special belly pan airfoils in the brake cooling ramps improve downforce and assist the brake cooling flow – a first for Mustang.
To improve the ride and handling characteristics, the Mach 1 features the latest MagneRide calibration, a stiffer steering I-shaft, new EPAS calibration, stiffer sway bars and front springs, an upgraded brake booster, 9.5-inch/10-inch split fitment wheels with Michelin PS4 tyres, a rear subframe with stiffer bushings and a rear toe-link from Shelby GT500.
