The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E in GT spec is bound to be a hoot with 459 horsepower and 619 pound-feet of torque. But it appears to be like like Ford and/or certainly one of its stunt-driving cohorts is engaged on a Mach-E that is much more enjoyable than what prospects will be capable to purchase. A video posted to YouTube reveals a stripped-down Mach-E with a wide range of modifications drifting and doing donuts. It was all taken at North Carolina Center for Automotive Research based on Jalopnik and Road & Track.
It’s fairly apparent that it is a Mach-E, as the entire physique between the pillars is current, albeit with out glass and trim. It additionally seems to have the low, floor-mounted batteries of the upcoming electrical crossover. And when the motive force steps on it, it emits a loud whine someplace between R/C car and jet engine. Major modifications to the car are current, although. The entrance has ditched the manufacturing unit MacPherson strut suspension in favor of a customized higher and decrease management arm design, most likely bolted to a customized subframe. The rear lacks a hatch, and as a replacement is a bunch of apparatus that is perhaps cooling tools for the batteries and motors. And we do imagine it has two motors, because it’s clear this car is all-wheel drive from the smoke coming off the entrance tires later within the video. Speaking of tires, they’re extraordinarily extensive with thick sidewalls.
Looking on the car, we extremely doubt this will probably be a manufacturing mannequin. Rather it looks like a one-off track car for use at exhibitions and for publicity. There’s a very good likelihood it is being developed with a stunt driver or drifter that works carefully with Ford, the obvious selections being Ken Block and Vaughn Gittin Jr. Supporting the potential for Vaughn Gittin Jr. is that Jalopnik studies his firm RTR has labored on tasks at North Carolina Center for Automotive Research, and Road & Track believes that the truck within the background is an RTR-modified Ford F-150. Of course, Ken Block is a world-renowned stunt driver and was even featured in a few of the Mustang Mach-E’s debut materials, so both appears attainable. Regardless of who will get the car, we will not wait to see it.
