Check Out This Ford Mustang Mach-E Rendered As An Electric Rally Car
The rather simple-looking Mach-E looks pretty cool in a rally outfitby Sidd Dhimaan, on LISTEN 02:06
Many people still can’t fathom Ford’s decision to slap the Mach-E EV with the Mustang badge. It feels a little sad, but the only way we can get over it is if we see the Mach-E in a different light and convince ourselves that it could get better. Here’s one iteration that will probably make you feel a little better – the Mach-E as a Rally crossover. Abimelec Design has reimagined the Mach-E as an electric rally crossover and it looks quite the part with those big tires and single wiper arm, amongst other things. Do you dig it?
This Mach-E Looks Ready To Race
I am well aware the Mach-E is not very well accepted yet, but I wanted to experiment a bit with wider fenders and bigger...Posted by Abimelec Design on Monday, July 13, 2020
Abimelec Design has given the electric urban commuter some subtle tweaks and suddenly, it wears a whole new personality.
The crossover is rendered with bigger tires and higher ground clearance along with yellow headlights and three rally lights up front. A bigger spoiler can be seen on the rear and it is given the black treatment, just like the taillights. Overall, it’s got an aggressive stance and looks quite sporty.
How Is The Mach-E GT Spec’d?
This Mustang Mach-E seen here is based on the GT trim. It is rated at 459 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque.
A report was leaked a few months back that suggested that the Mach-E will receive a power boost of up to 14 horses depending on the trim. This, however, did not include the GT model. We’ll have to wait and watch to see if these specs get any better. Ford has said that the fast GT trim is “targeting 0-60 in under four seconds” and will come with an estimated mil-range of 250 miles with an 88 kWh usable battery capacity.
After seeing these images, I like the Mach-E better in this avatar. It looks like a spiritual successor to the Ford Focus RS rally car. What do you have to say about these renderings? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
