Thought I would share this with you with the Ford person I spoke with today. She was parked in downtown Rochester and as I went to take pictures, she rolled down her window and shared with me some information about the Mach 1.

She has experience tracking some Mustangs including the GT350, PP2, Bullitt. She was driving the manual trans and said it shifted very good. I mentioned the long gearing on the Bullitt and she said that the car drives firm but the transmission/clutch engagement is very good on the Mach 1. She also said the best car for the money to track was the outgoing PP2. Really nice lady and now that I have seen the blue one in person, I think that is the color I will order.

Added: She told me that the handling was between a gt350 and PP1. Ride a bit firmer than the Bullitt.

Great initiative. Thanks for sharing these nice pics! Any idea of the shade of the JFG. That's my first choice as long as its lighter than the cement color Tacoma and some of the other darker shades out there. But Velocity Blue sure is great too.

Looks great! Did you get a chance to hear it? How does it sound? Compare it to anything else in the current lineup?

Yes I did hear it as she pulled away. It was really impressive. I would say like your Bullitt at least. Just deep and throaty. She said it drove firm even with MagneRide. The exhaust tips are sweet. as well.

I sure hope Ford improved their MR programming (clearly inferior to Camaro) but also didn't just stupidly crank up the compression across the board to give that "harsh so it must be good" crap that seems to infest those who don't know anything about good suspension.

What exhaust tips are those? Hopefully we can get them OEM

there were a goodly number of pics posted here at the various reveals. Looks to be darker than Avalanche ('17 GT350) but lighter than Abyss ('19 F150) and no blue tint like Abyss has.
Thanks! Its just hard to tell from the pics. Seems pretty light, which I would prefer.

When she drive away they were an eye catcher. Definitely bright chrome.

I wonder if the shifter ball was unique to her car or are all Mach 1 manual trans going to have that big shifter ball. The shifter ball looked like a pool ball.

That's just the Bullitt ball. Nothing new or special. The Mach 1 == Bullitt in many ways.

Not the transmission. Mach 1 has a tremec. They all have magneride and it was an option on the Bulliit. If you look at the photos, that car had a cloth interior but the seats looked different than a regular gt to me.
