Must watch with sound on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...ature=emb_logo

The Mach-E 1400 prototype shares its body-in-white with the production-ready SUV, but that’s where the similarities end. Every piece of the standard car’s running gear and chassis technology has been upgraded to suit the needs of circuit and drift racing.

Upgrades include adjustable suspension, larger Brembo brakes, an improved electronic brake servo and a new hydraulic handbrake that’s specifically designed to make the SUV easier to drift. Ford’s uprated steering system is also adjustable and has unique setups for either track or drift racing, with the latter option offering a greater steering angle to allow the driver to better control slides.

The Mustang Mach-E 1400’s powertrain features seven electric motors, which is four more than road-going SUV’s. There are three motors for the front axle and four at the rear, which are stacked on each of the car’s differentials and produce a maximum combined output of 1,400bhp.

The motors are also entirely configurable, offering the driver a choice of either front-, rear- or four-wheel drive. They’re fed by a specially developed 56.8kWh nickel-manganese-cobalt battery and supported by a heavy duty cooling system, which Ford says will decrease the amount of cooldown time between runs.


Ford has also fitted the prototype racer with an aggressive body kit, which features flared wheel arches, broader side skirts, a deep front splitter, a huge rear diffuser and an enormous rear wing. The firm says that these additions provide functional aerodynamic benefits, with a claimed 1,000kg of downforce at 160mph.

Would daily drive.

Love the looks, sort of looks like a done up race M2. Maybe it's Ford's way of stealing design back from BMW after BMW copied the Mustang template for their 8 series coupe.

I will take literally ANY of the other cars in this video. Particularly the GT350R or RTR.

The sound the E makes is annoying as hell. And Ford needs to stop calling it a Mustang. It most certainly is not. The only 2 things I like about the E is the rear wing, and the side mirrors. And there isn't anything I like about the production version at the end.

Sounds like one of the little hot wheel cars you juice up before placing it on a hot wheel toy track.

I think its badass. The sound is pretty weird though. As for the name, Mustang is a brand now so its whatever Ford imagines it to be.
