The latest iteration of the Ford Mustang, the 2021 Mach 1, is now on sale in Europe and starts from £55,185, with deliveries beginning in the summer.

Powered by an uprated V8 producing 454bhp and 390lb ft, the new Mustang Mach 1 is Ford’s fastest ever production Mustang offered to the European market around a track, according to the marque. To make that power, it gets a new intake manifold, oil cooler and oil filter adaptor from the Shelby GT500, as well as an 87mm throttle body.

The new Mach 1 bridges the gap between the base V8 model, now the only engine offered in Europe after Ford dropped the 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine, and the highly-tuned Shelby GT500. It effectively replaces the GT350, which was taken off sale last year.

Alongside the power increases, the Ford Mustang Mach 1 also comes with aerodynamic tweaks, the most obvious of which is the shark-nosed front end including a 3D grille, fake retro lights and new air intakes. Alongside a bigger underbody chassis tray, a total of 22% more downforce is generated by the Mach 1 over the Performance Pack-optioned Mustang GT.

Elsewhere in the looks department, the 2021 Mach 1 gets Magnum 500-inspired 19-inch aluminium wheels.

Thankfully for purists, the Mustang Mach 1 gets a six-speed manual gearbox from Shelby as standard, which includes rev-matching. A 10-speed auto is available as an option for £2000.

As standard, the Mach 1 comes with Ford MagneRide adjustable dampers, which are uniquely tuned to this car, as well as stiffer front springs and anti-roll bars, alongside retuned power steering.

For those wanting more of a track experience, an optional Handling Package is available, which comes with wider 10.5 inch wheels (9.5in standard option), as well as a larger front splitter, reshaped front wheel lip mouldings, a Gurney flap and tyre spats. This all helps to deliver an impressive 128% more downforce over the regular Mustang GT.
