  • ‘Mach 1’ is the official indication for the speed of sound, which this Mustang represents very well as it is almost as fast, rumour has it…
  • Immortal and eternal people’s favourite
  • Manual V8 power that never gets boring


The Ford Mustang has so far been introduced in all shapes, colours, and body styles by now. As early as 1964, the first Mustang rolled off the assembly line, and what Ford didn't know at that time was that this appealing sports car would conquer the world, shatter records, and still be so dominant almost sixty years later in the highly competitive automotive market. The seventh generation was recently unveiled, and by now, more than ten million Mustangs have been built across all generations; it seems like the end of the Mustang story is nowhere in sight.

John Najjar is the man who came up with the idea to design a sports car to enrich Ford's lineup. He, along with a colleague in Ford's design department, decided to build a prototype based on a similarly named American fighter plane used during World War II. In 1962, a prototype was shown, and it stunned. Nevertheless, the prototype was refined and then launched officially in 1965.

The first Mustangs sold incredibly well and found their place in the market. They were sporty, powered by a V8 engine, relatively luxurious, high-quality, and, moreover, affordable, making them very appealing to a wide audience. Records were shattered for these reasons, and the Mustang took the world, leading to the introduction of a second, third, fourth, and now seventh variant. In 2019, an electric SUV Mustang appeared under the name 'Mustang Mach-E,' which deviated somewhat from the traditional concept but still proved to be successful.

Ford Mustang Mach 1

The Ford Mustang Mach 1 allows the sporty essence of the Mustang to thrive. Mach 1 is the sport package that was available for the Mustang from 1969 to 1978 and has since received two tributes, first from 2003 to 2004 and the most recent one from 2021 up until now, as of the time of writing.

Initially, the Mach 1 sport package introduced variants of existing and high-performance V8 engines that were already powering the Mustang’s variant. The suspension was also reinforced to give the Mach 1 a more athletic demeanour. Beyond its impressive V8 power, the Mustang Mach 1 had a sporty exterior with the distinctive hood scoop, the pins holding the hood in place, a rugged front grille, and a clear 'Mach 1' emblem at the rear.

The Mach 1 keeps pace with the evolution in the Mustang series and was in production until 1978. In 2003 and 2021, Ford paid tribute to the Mach 1 by producing high-performance models bearing the same name.
