Touch Down! The Ford Mustang Mach 1 Is Here And Its All Muscle and Action
The Ford Mustang Mach 1 is the most track-focused Mustang yet, and it has officially touched down in South Africa.
As an exclusive limited-edition model, only 90 units are available for the South African market, making the new Mustang Mach 1 a highly sought-after car that pays tribute to the original, iconic 1969 version – but with all the modern design and performance attributes that have helped make the current-generation Mustang the world’s best-selling sports car.

The V8-powered Mustang GT delivers exhilarating performance, but a specially calibrated 338kW version of the 5.0-litre unit in the Mach 1 ensures even greater thrills.
Mustang Mach 1 delivers 0-100 km/h acceleration in 4.4 seconds with increased downforce compared with the Mustang GT for enhanced cornering capability and high-speed stability.
“There’s a reason Mustang is the world’s best-selling sports car, but the Mach 1 elevates Mustang to another level in the hearts of performance car fans,” says Doreen Mashinini, General Manager for Marketing at Ford South Africa. “Road or track, this is the most capable Mustang yet and is more than worthy of carrying the legendary Mach 1 badge.
