European 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Deliveries Are Now Underway

As we’ve previously reported, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is a truly global product, unlike the vehicle it replaced, the Shelby GT350. Mach 1 deliveries began in the U.S. back in February, following a few minor styling tweaks, and now, European 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 deliveries are underway as well.

“There’s a reason Mustang is the world’s best-selling sports car, but the Mach 1 is going to elevate Mustang to another level in the hearts of performance car fans on this side of the Atlantic,” said Matthias Tonn, Mustang Mach 1 chief program engineer for Europe. “Road or track, this is the most capable Mustang ever to reach Europe and is more than worthy of carrying the legendary Mach 1 badge.”

The European 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is mechanically identical to its North American counterpart, which means that it’s powered by an upgraded version of Ford’s 5.0L Coyote V8 that produces 480 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. The Mach 1 is the first production Mustang in Europe available with Tremec’s six-speed manual transmission, featuring rev-matching technology and an upgraded oil-cooler system. Customers can also opt for Ford’s 10-speed automatic gearbox with an upgraded oil-cooler and recalibrated software.

Ford also says that the European 2021 Mustang Mach 1 is “the fastest Mustang around a track ever to be sold in Europe,” and features “the most precise steering of any Mustang in Europe” thanks to retuned electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) software. Meanwhile, an upgraded suspension consists of numerous goodies including specially-calibrated MagneRide 2 dampers, stiffer springs, and beefier anti-roll bars.

On the outside, the Mach 1 hearkens back to its predecessors with hood and side stripes, unique wheel designs, and eight available color options, including Fighter Jet Gray. “A true Mustang Mach 1 needs to look fast even standing still,” Tonn said. “The functional aerodynamics and exclusive race-inspired features will leave performance car fans in no doubt that this Mustang means business – even before it hits the track.”

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
