2021 Mustang Mach1 Designers Modernized Classic Details

June 29th, 2020

Reviving an iconic model is no easy task. When the original Mustang Mach1 debuted in 1969, it did so with no compromises. The smallest engine option was a 5.8-liter Windsor, and it arrived with the same aerodynamic, chassis, and styling improvements that were also standard on the monster 7-liter Cobra Jet. Revived for 2003, designers did as much as possible to focus on the 4-Valve engine, with a shaker hood and original-style stripes. Now that the 2021 Mach1 will arrive with the most powerful 5-liter in Ford’s history, the livery needed a modern touch.

Best Ford Mustangs Of All Time

The new graphics are accentuated by Sans Serif, while keeping the lower-case “h”. From the lighted door sills to the numbered dash plaque, each Mach1 will be treated to a higher standard than regular production ponies. ?When a nameplate like a Mach 1 comes back, you need to play up the heritage, but we didn?t want this to be a retro badge,? said Dean Carbis, Ford chief designer. ?We wanted it to be modern, while still calling back to the original. I think the team nailed it.?. You will have 480 horsepower, reinforced strut tower, beefy sway bars and a redline at 7,000 rpm.
