    It hast the standard european GT wheels, so my best guess is still, that the frontend is the standard for all MY2021 Mustangs.
    It's nice to see that the spoiler lip is coming to europen GTs.

    But it also could be the base Mach 1 EU version with just different wheels for testing

    I think it will look good.

    This is my thought, too.....the Euro GT runs 255 fronts, 275 rears, and that's exactly the same size as the non-Handling Pack Mach 1, so they can test on Euro GT wheels.

    Personally, I'm not convinced the '21MY GT/Eco will share the Mach's front end. Whilst I get that it would help amortize the costs, it also takes away from the uniqueness of the Mach. Of course, I've been wrong plenty of times before :blush:

    Without the Mach 1 frontend I guess we don't have a facelift at all? The only other frontend we saw was likely to just throw off people who see the spyshots :inspect:

    At least I am not sure anymore if this frontend is actually real since it also was on the first spotted mach 1s

    I wonder if they just hacked the stock front bumpers in order to get the coolers in there, and then just temporarily moved the turn signals up several inches as their usual mounting places were unusable. If that's the case, then perhaps all we've been seeing are Mach 1 prototypes.

    Also, as far was I can tell, none of the prototypes spotted in the last year or so have been Ecoboosts.........and you'd expect them to be at least testing that version if the facelift was across the board.

    I hope I'm wrong......it'd be nice to see a small refresh for the EB/GT as well for the last two years of S550, but I'd rather they just didn't use a Mach 1 front fascia.

    Time will tell :)

    I hope for the GT500's sake they don't use the GT500 rear valance on all GTs moving forward. As cool as it is, the GT500 should stand out from a GT in this regard. I'm guessing this is a Euro spec. Mach 1 testing for emissions. The clear lenses, GT500 rear valance, and the long ugly tailpipes are tells.

    Probably have the same front end as the Mach 1. only difference will be the grill and chin spoiler ..if they could have spend the time to make the Mach 1 have a unique front bumper they could have spent the time to give it a unique hood as well.

    As a selfish recent buyer of a 20 I hope they don't give the 21 the Mach 1 front clip. However, I'm not sure how they can justify the cost of 3 different front ends for the GT, Mach, and GT500. The last Mach didn't have a different front end from the GT other than the splitter which makes sense here.

    If this is the new stock front end (GT , EcoBoost) ..it's definitely the best offering for the s5550 .Screenshot_20200623-133840~2.png Screenshot_20200623-133920~2.png Screenshot_20200623-134010~2.png

    As somebody ready to buy, but waiting for 2021 just in case... I’m going to hope the Mach 1 front end is the new standard, maybe a different grill or something but i think it looks great. If not, i also like the 18-20 but at this point i think it’s best to wait or else with my luck they will have some better options or a small upgrade in 21 that I’ll miss out on if i got a 2020 right now

    This is the euro Mustang....look at the side mirrors and amber turn signals.

    Yes...

    the question is if it’s a non handling pack Mach 1 or a regular GT being tested. We all know it’s a euro car

    Hmmm. You pick a blurry, non PP1 or PP2 GT front end photo compared to a high res handling pack Mach 1. How about these pics of a PP2? At least it gives the car a fighting chance vs the Mach 1 handling pack: PP2-2.JPG PP2.JPG
