Once seen, never forgotten.
The black-striped hood, shark-nosed grille, and bold, muscular style – the Mustang Mach 1 was an icon from the moment it first appeared. Now, 50 years later, it returns to enthral a new generation in a strictly limited edition. Move fast, or be left in its dust.
Once driven, forever smitten.
The visual punch of the new Mach 1 is matched only by the thrill of the driving experience.
