The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 – a legendary model that is making its return following a 17-year hiatus – is a truly global model, as we’ve reported in the past. That means it’s available in a variety of places around the world, including Europe. Now, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is headed for Mexico as well, the automaker has confirmed.
“Mustang is one of the most beloved brands in the Mexican market, so much so that sales of the highest performance models exceed our expectations and we hope that with this renewed, and at the same time classic icon that now presents many characteristics that make it ideal for track, customers have a new favorite,” said Lucien Pinto, director of marketing and sales for Ford of Mexico.
Deliveries of the new Mach 1 started in the U.S. just a few weeks ago, but as we recently reported, Ford made a few styling tweaks to the track-focused pony car at the last minute. Those tweaks include a silver border for the car’s matte black badges, a low-gloss black lower grille instead of the originally-planned Magnetic Gray, and slightly altered fender stripes.
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is powered by a modified version of Ford’s 5.0L Coyote V8, which produces 480 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque and is mated to Tremec’s 3160 6-speed manual. In other parts of the world, Ford’s 10-speed automatic gearbox is also an option, but it’s nowhere to be found on Ford Mexico’s site as of this writing, nor is the optional Handling Package.
Underneath, the Mach 1 features the latest MagneRide calibration, a stiffer steering I-shaft, new EPAS calibration, stiffer sway bars and front springs, a brake booster from the Mustang GT Performance Pack 2, a rear subframe with stiffer bushings, and a rear toe-link from the Shelby GT500. The base Mach 1 rides on new 19-inch x 9.5-inch and 19-inch x 10-inch five-spoke Tarnished Dark-painted aluminum wheels and features a host of additional aero bits designed to increase downforce.
The new Ford Mustang Mach 1 is available in seven different colors for Mexican buyers: Electric Blue, Sunset Black, Tornado Orange, Racing Red, Silver, Oxford White, and Iconic Yellow. It is on sale now at Ford dealers in the Mexican Republic with a starting MSRP of $1,180,000 pesos ($57,544 USD).
