Ford already sells more electric versions of its Mustang than the classic with a coupe form and V8 engine. But it will not be set – the wild horse gets a performance syringe, parts of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT and a magnificent manual circuit.
The voice of the people is heard in Dearborn. Without a large tamtam, the Ford center has banished the four-cylinder from the Ford Mustang engine compartment. The demand is too low, it is said. This phenomenon is not surprising: Lappische Four pots in a purebred muscle car is like a tofu frying in a Hamburger.
V8-Muscle Car instead of tofu-friedling
So now only the double cylinder number under the bonnet of the wild horse and that in a very classic way without any forced ventilation. For this, the vacuum cleaner has two camshafts, four valves per cylinder and at least independent variable tax times for inlet and exhaust valves. With that, however, it has already been with the new -fashioned odds.

In order to get the airways of the nostrils free, the engine has an induction system including a special intake manifold and 87 millimeter throttle valves. The fuel gets into the combustion chambers. The result is 338 kW / 460 hp and a maximum torque of 529 Newton meters. More than enough to ensure turmoil in the territory of BMW and Audi. “The Mach 1 is the climax for me. The best performance car we have ever built, ”says chief engineer Matthias Tonn Stolz.
Politically incorrect and "just crazy"
When the eighers are started, the octane number in the pilot’s veins increases beyond the 100 mark. Already in the stand the vacuum cleaner snorkeled so wonderfully archaic, so little politically correct and simply cool. This is traditional engine construction at its finest. So an engine has to sound. We immerse yourself in the world of mechanical gears and have decided on the six-speed manual circuit, in which the Tremec TR-3160 gearbox from the Ford Mustang GT Shelby replaces the previously installed MT82 manual transmission gearbox.

Even inserting the first course is a pleasure, the right hand includes the white ball at the end of the gang stick and the left foot steps into the clutch pedal, which is surprisingly smooth and has a clear pressure point. Clack! The lever freaks in crunchy and precisely. Give the gas, let the clutch come and off we go. The Mustang Mach 1 starts to move relaxed and confidently. Reap on the country road, we pull the corridors through: Klack, Klack, Klack … Second, third, fourth. Short distances. Splendid. We change driving mode. From normal, where the Mustang is absolutely suitable for everyday use, to Sport Plus. At the moment the wild horse spans its muscles and takes on every accelerator pedal movement eager.

Race Mode: Take that, AMG!
Now the track/race track driving program is on and the Mustang finally mutates into a floor-floor rocket. The virtual instruments are reduced to a speed band with a red area that only beyond 7.000 revolutions begins. A high -speed concept in pure culture. Yes, the eighth needs tours to develop all his strength, under 3.000 rpm it is rather reserved. But then it gets a lot of things, wonderfully archaic snorting, snorkeling and greedy sucking does the unit and pushes the coupe a lot. The addiction factor is accordingly high, but the background noise is never annoying. Take that, AMG!

It continues. Every cornering is a gift. Brake. The six-piston Brembo brake calipers are braking to a brake booster thanks to a stronger braking power amplifier. After 32 meters, the Mustang should be at 100 km/h. Steer. The steering is tight, directly and tells us what the front tires are doing. This is also a good thing, because with its 1.8 ton of live weight, the Mustang Mach 1 is not a light-footed athlete, but a classic muscle car with which you do not peel yourself out of the sports seats even after long distances, but with which you also use it Sometimes it can be brisk and who puts a smile on your lips. Due to the variable Magneride dampers, the Mustang is never suspended in the two Attacke driving modes. Thanks to the chassis components from the Shelby GT, the Mach 1 unimpressed its railway and also remains controllable to ambitious cornering: you can also be relaxed on this floor with enough security reserves on this floor.

The improved aerodynamics also have a positive effect. In contrast to the automatic version, which is already braked at 250 km/h, the hand switched can continue to gallop up to 267 km/h. For this, the standard sprint from zero to 100 km/h at 4.8 seconds by 0.4 seconds is slower and treats itself to an extra swallow from the fuel powder with 13.6 l/100 kilometers. The infotainment is also not the last scream, but for 60.You get 800 euros a car that is fun in many situations.
