• The Ford Mach-E 1400 Has a Very Silent Affair With Goodwood Speed Week

Check out Vaughn Gittin Jr. drifting in this crazy 1,400-horsepower Ford Mach-E

Ford has entered the electric SUV realm with the Mustang Mach-E, a sporty hauler capable of up to 459 horsepower and up to 300 miles of range. But FoMoCo didn’t stop here and also created a monstrous race-spec Mach-E. Fitted with no fewer than seven electric motors that deliver a combined 1,400 horsepower, the Mustang Mach-E 1400 is downright spectacular when it comes to performance, but it also looks cool in its race-inspired suit. The SUV was recently showcased at Goodwood Speed Week, where master drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. proved that you don’t need gasoline power to do donuts.

The Mustang Mach-E was pretty silent compared to all the other vehicles showcased during the event. Electric motors don’t make much noise, although they tend to whine when the accelerator pedal hits the floor. But it wasn’t all crickets and frogs during Gittin’s run. The American driver drifted through every corner and took every chance he got to drift around in circles, so there’s plenty of tire screeching. You might want to turn down the volume from the 5:15-minute mark. Although there’s no exhaust noise, Gittin’s display of power is as exciting as it gets. And it goes to show that the Mustang Mach-E 1400 is an insane piece of machinery.

It’s definitely an EV that I would like to see go into production, but it’s not likely to happen. The Mach-E is available in a wide selection of trims that come with 266 to 459 horsepower for the time being. Torque varies between 317 to more than 500 pound-feet, so I guess you can still do donuts in a standard Mach-E. But you can follow Ford for updates on where the Mach-E 1400 will be showcased in the future. This race car will hit various tracks across the U.S. soon.
