Mach 1 is the most track-friendly slice of American muscle Ford has ever officially sold on this side of the Atlantic. A bespoke front splitter, underfloor chassis tray and rear diffuser deliver a combined 22% of extra downforce over the regular Mustang GT. The front and rear subframes have been uprated, and the MagneRide adaptive suspension has been given a unique Mach 1 calibration. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a Shelby-sourced six-speed manual transmission.

Sentiment Score[*] 76%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following[***]:
Firmer front springs, uprated anti-roll bars and stiffer subframe bushes. Electric power steering system recalibrated, and these changes are noticeable. Mach 1 feels better tied down than a standard V8 Mustang, more direct and more willing to be hustled. It's not mind-bendingly fast, but put it to work and the Mach 1 thunders along at quite a lick.

  • Comfortable to drive
