Confirmed: Ford Mustang Mach 1 is coming to the UK in 2021

In a nutshell

  • New Mustang Mach 1 is coming to Europe for the first time.
  • Honed for the track, the Mach 1 features uprated suspension, engine cooling, aerodynamics and handling.
  • Uses a tweaked version of the 5.0 litre V8 engine found in the UK-spec Mustang Bullitt and GT.
  • Styling flourishes give a nod to the Mustangs of the 60s and 70s - particularly those striking racing stripes.

Petrolheads rejoice - drool-inducing muscle car the Ford Mustang Mach 1 is coming to the UK.

And not only is the Mach 1 rapid, Ford also says it’s the best handling best-handling Mustang ever to wheel-spin into Europe.

Up until now, the most high performance Mustang you could buy in the UK was the ‘Bullitt’, priced from £46,830, and which has 459 PS on tap thanks to a 5.0 litre V8 engine.  

Now the Mach 1 has ever so slightly trumped the Bullitt coming with 460 PS and other enhancements that give it ‘track-ready capability’.  

Like the Bullitt, you should be looking at a 0-62mph time of just 4.9 seconds and peak torque of 529Nm delivered at 4,600rpm. 

First thing to talk about is the new gearbox - a TREMEC six-speed manual - which has ‘rev matching technology’ which should give you seamless down changes for when you’re thundering into a corner.

There’s also a 10 speed automatic as an option - and both the manual and the auto box come with a limited slip differential as standard.  

The Mach 1 also enjoys an uprated oil-cooler system, which should keep the Mach 1 out of the pit lane should you find yourself driving one with extreme enthusiasm.  

Meanwhile enhanced aerodynamics thanks to a tweaked exterior also improve the Mach 1’s racing credentials - increasing downforce by 22 per cent compared with the Mustang GT.

The Mach 1 isn’t just honed for the track - specially calibrated ‘MagneRide’ dampers mean the suspension should be well equipped for general road use, too. It also boasts bespoke springs, anti-roll bars and bushes designed to cope with high cornering loads. 

Meanwhile ‘retuned electric power-assisted steering software’ offers precise steering.  

As Ford points out: “The result is the fastest production Mustang around a track ever offered to customers in Europe.” 

Of course, the ‘Mach 1’ label has been around since the tail end of the 60s.  

And the styling of the new Mach 1 has been designed to recall those classic Mustangs of old.  

That means brazen bonnet and side stripes, 19 inch alloy wheels, air intakes on the hood, and a shouty new quad exhaust system with 4.5 inch tips at the rear.  

Each Mustang Mach 1 is individually numbered with a distinctive plaque according to its build order. And while precise pricing has yet to be revealed, you can expect to pay north of £50,000.  

Of course, there are more affordable Mustangs to be had as a grin-inducing leasing option.  

The Mustang coupe starts at £530 per month - and that’s for the 5.0 litre V8 GT, which has a 450 PS engine and can accelerate from 0-62mph in just 4.9 seconds.  

There’s also a more economical 2.3 litre EcoBoost version available, which has a very healthy 291 PS and will still return 32 miles to the gallon.

Meanwhile if you can wait until next year, there’s also an all-electric Mach-E GT SUV waiting in the wings for 2021.

The Mach-E produces power of 465 PS, which equates to a 0-62mph time of an incredible 3.7 seconds.
