Stangmode's video. If you're not a fan, keep it on mute, at least until the end where you can here the Mach 1 start up.

Also, a few errors in the narration. The Fighter Jet Gray IS available on the non-handling pack (he refers to it as the Performance Pack).

I like the look of trust fighter jet grey Mach 1 more than any other mustang, period. I’d supercharge that and leave it as is. Just beautiful.

Thanks for posting. It was good to see the car in a video, but ugghh he misspeaks a lot and says incorrect things a lot. I probably couldn't do better, but that's why I don't try to make videos.

I really don't understand the hate for the Mach1. GT owners are getting a bit uppity me thinks. I do think the Bullitt was a bit to specific and limited appeal.

But the Mach1 is a bit more known in the Mustang world.

The 03 and 04 Mach1s sold out and sold well.

So I'm wondering if the Mach1 for 2021 is going to be a 2 year or 5 year special edition. If 5 year it does bring us to the new Mustang model...

S650 is coming for the '23MY, so we'll have two years of Mach 1 :like:

Errrrr, hood vents? Yep, it has hood vents, just as all '18+ S550s do.

If you mean a shaker, it's already been explained that to make it functional would have meant a mess of trying to duct air to the actual intake, and it wouldn't have offered any more performance so they didn't do it. Besides, the shaker was never stock on the '69/70, it was always an option.

Yeah, I'd love to see a TP car in orange, without any graphics/stripes/etc.

it has completely WORTHLESS hood vents for track duty. This was supposed to be a track-ready car.
The modern GT350 slot in the hood should have been the minimum.

Either that or he meant something like the '69 Shelbys and '71 Boss 351s had. My assumption was he wanted NACA ducts based on his post.

Can we see some other colors? Are there other colors there or are they still showing the same Fighter Jet Grey and Velocity Blue cars? Love to see it in black.
Remember in the one video the day after the reveal the Ford rep stated that those were the only two built cars.

Twin Turbo has been posting shots of newly completed cars in the stockyard, but they were probably built too late to slot into the traveling show. And are probably already earmarked for dealer allotments.

Liking the front facia but does anyone know what the design thinking was behind the recesses in the grille? Not sure what to call them since they don't appear functional. Just a nod to previous model lights?

Maybe Ford thought they'd put the recesses in there because if they don't the aftermarket will.

Like the Boss 302 grille, these "blanks" can be removed for extra cooling :)
