Ford Mustang Mach 1 available in Australia

Ford revives the Mustang Mach 1 again, but for the first time it will be available in Australia as a factory right-hand drive model.

Ford’s new Mustang Mach 1, which sits below the Shelby GT350, is coming to Australia.

Confirmed by Ford Australia this afternoon the limited-edition Mach 1 will be available next year at a price expected to breach $80,000 plus on-roads.

While this will make it an expensive Mustang – though not as expensive as the supercharged Mustang R-Spec – it brings additions to the exterior, interior, and, importantly, engine.

Based on the same 5.0L naturally-aspirated V8 lump underneath the Mustang GT, the addition of GT350 parts and some revisions bump power to 345kW while torque sits at 556Nm. Transmission options are a six-speed manual or an eight-speed auto.

Like the Mustang Bullitt, Ford will make 700 Mustang Mach 1 limited editions available to Australia.

“Achieving Mach 1 for the first time was a significant human feat,” said Ford Australia President and CEO, Andrew Birkic.

“That spirit and determination to keep pushing, never settling and always trying to go further is what the Mach 1 Mustang was all about – and it’s fitting that we can bring Australian customers, who’ve made Mustang part of our motoring landscape, a 2021 Mustang Mach 1 of their very own.”

The exterior also receives some nice styling tweaks with the two round grille inserts upfront a definite nod to the original model’s nose styling. There are also aggressive side skirts, front splitter, and a boot lip spoiler on the body kit. Inside the wheel arches are 19-inch matt black alloys with 305/30 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres and Brembo brakes.

We expect pricing to be confirmed closer to its arrival, which will be in 2021.
