Good news! You can now officially buy the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 and prices start at $52,915. That makes the 480 hp, 420 lb-ft of torque Mustang about $4,000 more than the outgoing Bullitt.

Unlike that special edition, the Mach 1 will be offered with a manual or a 10-speed automatic transmission. And if you should want to pay a little more than 52 grand, you’ll be more than able to thanks to an optional handling package—though you’ll only be able to buy that on manual cars. It offers a whopping 150% more downforce than a Mustang GT. It will also add Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires to the party.

The most important aero gain, though, comes from an underbelly pan that extends 20 inches farther rearward than on a Mustang GT, according to Ford. This, along with large underwing features in the belly pan act to increase airflow and downforce, while also increasing airflow to the rear brakes for improved cooling.


Keeping it all suspended properly is the latest MagneRide calibration for the suspension. A stiffer steering I-shaft, new EPAS calibration, stiffer sway bars and front springs, as well as a brake booster from the Performance Pack 2 all mean better handling. The Mach 1 also has a new rear subframe with stiffer bushings and a rear toe-link from the GT500. Finally, some Michelin PS4 tires keep it all glued to the road.

The grille, meanwhile, has been designed to harken back to the original Mach 1 with its deep 3D mesh, as well as a shark-nosed section and faux lamp elements. A low gloss, Magnetic pony badge sits in the center of the grille.

In fact, low-gloss and black accents all around the car contribute to what Ford calls a “premium look.” Satin black hood and side decals, meanwhile, contribute to the history of the car by harkening back to the original Mach 1.

Reflective accents stripes can also be had in one of three colors, red, white, or orange. They can be set alongside a few primary color options that include Fighter Jet Gray, Iconic Silver, Shadow Black, Oxford White, Velocity Blue, Twister Orange, Race Red, and Grabber Yellow.

Although named a limited edition, Ford hasn’t revealed exactly how many Mach 1s they plan to make.
