New Zealand RHD Mach1.
Well the wait is finally over and I have my new Mach1, what an absolute gorgeous car, I drove it home around 5.00pm about 20km and I must say a very different car to my 2016 Mustang GT.

I placed my order for the car on the 26th October 2020, the car was built on the 4th March 2021. My Mach1 sat at Baltimore for a month or so before it received a shipping schedule, then the ship Tirranna ran aground in Chesapeake Bay. The Tirranna was held up for a survey to check it was all OK to sail, then the ship lost its place to navigate through the Panama Canal and then it was held up at the Ports of Auckland, boy what a rocky road to New Zealand.

New Zealand Mach1 cars only had to options:
Manual or Auto and a choice of colour.
Our cars a fully loaded and expensive $97,990.00, I would say we are very lucky to be getting a special edition Mustang.

This will be my second S550 Mustang and very much looking forward to driving and cherishing this piece of history, could well be the last of the true N/A V8 muscle cars.

As was the wait for my first Mustang (19 months) the Mach1 has only been 7 months wait, so I have had a little less time to figure out the mods, here is a list of those mods.

Ceramic paint protection (done)
PPF (done)
Rokblokz mud flaps front and rear
CPC coolant tank cover
CPC brake reservoir cover
Ford Performance bonnet struts
Ford Performance oil catch can
UPR oil pan bolt
These will be fitted in the coming weeks.

I know you are all waiting for the photos, so here they are.

They are standard.
I actually wanted standard Mach1 seats with the orange stripe on the seat as well as heating and cooling but them are the breaks.
I couldn't turn down a Mach1 just because of the Recaro seats.
New Zealand only got 50 cars and if you were not in the know you would have missed out.

The shadows on the car change the color completely. Looks like a baby blue.
Yes you are correct, color changes if you are out on a sunny day or on a overcast day.
Never looks like baby blue, camera phones don't take a good photo of the color.
The garage shot is a good representation of the color.
Just love the color, Fighter Jet Grey.

Nice looking car!!!! The Recaros are electric?
Thank you.
Yes they are, all RHD cars are electric.
Don't ask me why.
The bullitts were the same.

Damn only 50. I guess the heavier set guys down there are out of luck when it comes to specialty mustangs with recaros being the only option.

I swear I see an almost mint green in FJG under certain lighting but all the comments I’ve heard from people that have seen my car are that they see blue in it

What a journey for that car, great info on the Tirranna. Enjoy it! I think we are in the waning days of NA V8s being available to most of the general public. I certainly don't know how things are in NZ specifically, but the days are numbered in the USA.
I think you are correct, time for the ICE is running out for sure.
I have some photos of the Tirranna going through the Panama Canal as well as Auckland Port.

You are correct on that one, lucky I am on the small size.
I have a mate that has a Bullitt, I went and tried that first.

Sorry I see no blue, a greenish tint in some lights.

Hi, Think yourself lucky as we europeans dont get any of these(Torsen Diff) (Two clocks in centre of Dash) (Strut Brace) & down on power by over 27 HP this what you call raw deal especially when Ford advertised the Bullitt on a video with all the above parts then didnt suppy any of them. Plus we have to pay more for less must be learning of Porsche.

EU cars get the strut brace, might be only in UK. Unless you get it too, since it'd be bit weird to exclude it only for RHD cars.

Check this video at 1:27, nice overview of German car (in English).

As for the power, I wouldn't be too worried about that, the difference is small and might be partly due to them measuring it with petrol with worse octane number, I want to first see a measurement on the brake with proper 100 octane petrol :) GPF will cost a few hp, but in the end they still give official 4.4 sec 0-100 km/h with automatic (4.2 sec 0-96 km/h from the video).



12g, sorry for going bit offtopic in your intro topic, your car is lovely, congrats and enjoy!
Guess I'll end up with mine just in time for winter like you down under, haha.
