2021 Ford Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT Concept: Live Photo Gallery

While the Ford Mustang Mach-E had a strong presence at last year’s SEMA show in general, perhaps the most surprising – and attractive – of the bunch was the 2021 Ford Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT concept, which applied an iconic name from Blue Oval history to the new EV crossover. A collaborative effort between Ford and Shelby American, the 2021 Ford Shelby Mustang Mach-E concept features some familiar styling cues and performance upgrades, but when Ford Authority saw the EV crossover again at the 2022 Woodward Dream Cruise, it looked just a bit different.

The most obvious difference between this Shelby Mach-E and the regular model is its graphene-infused carbon fiber body kit, which consists of a restyled front fascia, fenders, rear flares, and hood. A set of blue Shelby stripes adorns the front splitter and carries on to the hood, over the roof, and down the rear fascia as well.

Moving down the side, the Shelby Mach-E concept is equipped with a set of 20×9-inch forged monoblock one-piece wheels wrapped with 265/40 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. There’s also a set of side stripes with “Shelby” integrated in the center, though those stripes have been moved down to the bottom portion of the doors and redesigned. When this model appeared at SEMA, those stripes were larger and placed just below the side windows.

In the rear, this special Mach-E features Shelby badging, while on the performance side of things, this crossover is equipped a Shelby-tuned Ford MagneRide damping system and composite carbon fiber springs. Inside the cabin, the Shelby Mach-E features a host of official Ford Accessories including a rear-view dash cam, all-weather floor mats, and a cargo area protector, along with Recaro Shelby leather seats, Shelby badging, and a Shelby CSM identification number.

This build doesn’t feature anything in terms of performance upgrades, though the GT is already a pretty stout performer with 480 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, or 634 pound-feet for the Performance Edition, which is capable of doing 0-60 in around 3.5 seconds.

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.

    I sure hope they don’t bastardize the Shelby name by putting it on this vehicle. I don’t care how much horsepower it has. It is not a Shelby so please don’t call it one. You can put lipstick on a pig but, it’s still a pig !!

    Caroll Shelby must be spinning in his grave. There is no way he’d allow his storied name to be put on this appliance if he were still alive. Ford, it’s bad enough you sullied the Mustang name by putting it on this thing, but please don’t disparage the Shelby name too! This is blasphemy!

      I too still think the naming was a mistake. Should have simply been called the Mach E. The Mustang should never be anything other than a high performance 2 door coupe.

      Caroll was a car guy. I think he would have been very into the performance capabilities of EVs.

  3. MrV8

    That is not a Mustang, and it sure is not a Shelby. Please stop Ford with this nonsense.

  4. Dan

    I think they’re missing out on a marketing opportunity here.

    Should be called the Shelb-E.

      I agree 100%!

    Remember when Ford plastered “Ghia” on everything in the 1970’s?
