I'm kinda disappointed about the power, they should have made the bullitt engine the standard GT engine and then gave the mach 1 a new set of cams to bump the power up to 500-510. In the end it's just a refreshed bullitt in different colors and an A10 option. The loaded ones will probably list for 57-58 and start about 51-52. The first ones out the door with ADM will be north of 60. I'll wait till 23 when they are practically giving them away and pick one up new for 48-50, and my 17 vert will be paid in full by then so I will keep it and have both.

What I read on Carbuzz was that the grille lights were excluded as a weight saving/performance measure since this is the track-oriented trim. They might be included on the regular GTs next year, and be able to be swapped in by dealers. I have no idea how true any of this is, but it makes a sense, even if I disagree with the decision.

That's what they did with the 12-13 BOSS 302

That's what camber is for.
A) doesn’t defeat the problem, in fact it would make it worse legally. It’s a vertical clearance, not planar with the tire
B) that would significantly impact ratings on the car due to massively increased tire wear with how much camber would be required.

They do say in the article projected at 480, I would say that they wouldn’t even say projected unless they were shooting for something else. Didn’t this power thing happen with 2013 GT500, was rated way below the final product?

Because the Mach 1 has been a much anticipated car and when it revealed Ford laziness in styling is very disappointing. What we are getting is a refreshed Bullitt, with better transmissions true but still a Bullitt. Look at the wheels on the blue car Bullitt wheels and I'm willing to bet the the front bumper cover is the same one for the 2021 Mustang refresh. We should have seen this coming when Ford revealed the 2.3L High Performance Package.

Weak wheels and tires. As commented above, it's just a warmed over Bullitt with different transmissions, stickers and some cooling apparatus for the tiny minority that might sniff out a track once in a blue moon. Had it showed up with 525 horse and the A10 had all of the same options as the manual variant I might have been interested. Instead - pass....

Did anyone else noticed...

In the interior shot of the HP, the light switch is the one that has the fog light button? I wonder if there will be a option to have them from the factory. :inspect:

The motor trend article says the cover in the “fog lights” can be removed for extra cooling on track days.
I almost mentioned that in some photos, it looked like they were actual holes, but I figured it might be just the lighting (they may have not even been removed, but neat that they can be).

I think half assed would be a good term to describe this car. I never remember the Mach 1 being a track focused car anyway but more of a street bruiser.
They should have given this thing the GT350 heads cams and intake and a flex fuel key where you can bring it up to about 550 crank HP and offer it with the A10 and maybe a limited number of tremac 6 spds
This thing is just not very well thought out.

Looks good. Don't like that wheels on the standard car. Perf Pack wheels look great.
Very interest in this. Will be ready to trade my 17' in on one.
