Ford has just fully unveiled the limited edition 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1, the most track capable 5.0-liter V8 Mustang ever!
The return of the iconic Mach 1 nameplate makes its return after 17 years, and Ford made sure to give the limited edition vehicle its proper place in the lineup, with a specially calibrated 5.0-liter V8 engine projected to produce 480 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 420 lb-ft. of torque at 4,600 rpm.
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 percent.
The 2021 Mach 1 comes standard with a Tremec 3160 six-speed manual transmission from the Shelby GT350. For the first time, Ford has outfitted the system with rev-matching and the transmission is paired with the GT350 oil cooler system and Mustang GT’s twin-disc clutch and short-throw shifter.
Drivers can also opt for an available 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with an upgraded torque converter and unique calibration that enables optimizing torque capability, shift character and overall enhanced performance. A second air-to-oil cooler increases cooling capacity by 75 percent.
