Back in October, we were the first to report that Ford Motor Company was working to acquire the Mach 1 trademark. Now, TopSpeed has shared this rendering of what it expects to see when the Blue Oval releases the vehicle.
Given that the Mach 1 moniker is likely to grace an even higher-performance variant of the sixth-gen Mustang, the rendering appropriately features bigger heat extractors on the hood, a huge adjustable front splitter (that may or may not be street legal), a contrasting lip spoiler on the decklid, along with retro badges and black decals on the sides, hood, and rear end. The looks wouldn’t be at all surprising given that the 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 has a similar track-ready body treatment.
To note, Ford first used the Mach 1 moniker in 1968. It lived on until the end of Mustang II production in 1978, and made a brief return between 2003 and 2004. Perhaps the sixth-gen Mustang team is feeling nostalgic with the Stang’s 50th anniversary, and is thus planning to use it on a variant of the pony sometime in the near future. Whatever and whenever it ends up being announced and launched, we’re looking forward to it.
