As we’ve reported recently, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 won’t just be sold in the U.S. and Europe – but also Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and a number of other places around the globe. And it’s already a pretty hot item in South America, as the first batch of 80 Brazilian Ford Mustang Mach 1 orders sold out in a mere 24 hours when they became available last Friday, the automaker has reported. Fittingly, that initial batch sold out on the Mustang’s 57th birthday.
“This success demonstrates the strength of the Mustang and its heritage as an icon of sportsmanship and performance,” said Antonio Baltar Jr., Ford’s executive director. “The new Mach 1 brings all this legacy and is also the most prepared model for the tracks of all time. It is an exclusive car, worthy of a collection, which carries on its mystique.”
The Brazilian Ford Mustang Mach 1 joins the 2021 Ford Bronco and Ford Ranger Black (which also sold out in less than one day recently) as yet another intriguing offering in the South American country. The arrival of these models was announced alongside a $580 million dollar investment in the Ford Pacheco Assembly Plant to produce the next-generation Ranger, which is scheduled to reach South American markets in 2023.
U.S. deliveries of the Mach 1, which received a few minor styling tweaks ahead of its launch, began in early February. The very first one produced – VIN 001 – hammered for an astounding $500,000 at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction last month. Thankfully, other buyers won’t have to shell out that kind of cash for their new rides, and there’s also some good news for Brazilian customers who missed out on the initial batch of Mach 1s – more will be available starting in June, and they can contact their preferred dealer for more information on how to secure one.
