Could Ford and Cosworth Be Working on a New V8 for the Mustang Mach 1?

Cosworth, like the Cosworthhas just announced plans to open a $30 million plant in suburban Detroit to supply an unnamed manufacturer.

Cosworth CEO Hal Reisiger wouldn’t say who exactly they would be working with, but did say they manufacture “hi-performance road cars.”

According to Automotive News, Cosworth will produce V8 cylinder heads at a factory in Shelby Township, Michigan. The location was picked due to it’s “proximity to the customer base.”

Could Cosworth and Ford be getting back into bed together? Dearborn is just a bomb across I-96.

We know TVR will be using a version of the Mustang’s Coyote V8 tuned by Cosworth in their upcoming re-birth, but could Ford also be considering capitalizing on the partnership?

The Cosworth version of the 5.0 is reported to put out between 450 and 500 horses, making me think it could be the perfect powerplant for the 2018 Mustang Mach 1.
