2021 Ford Mustang R67 by Aviar Motors
Ford is yet to gift the Mustang with an all-electric powertrain. Of course, we now have the Ford Mustang Mach E electric SUV but indisputably, that’s not even close to what the Mustang stands for. There’s also the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400, but that’s hardy a road-legal vehicle.
That said, Aviar Motors set up to do what Ford won’t for the time being. In the process, the Russian EV start-up found time to bake in a 1960s twist into its all-electric Mustang, which instantly doubles the (silent) muscle car’s cool factor. Here’s all you need to know about the Aviar R67.
In 2019, we got the chance to spend a week with the Ford Mustang GT Convertible,, and it was an absolute blast to drive. In fact, we even described it as presenting a “few reasons why you still need a V-8.” Ever since then, we’ve been wondering about the four-cylinder Mustang, aka the Mustang EcoBoost. Can a Mustang with a four-cylinder engine really live up to the name of a thoroughbred muscle car? Well, after months of asking, a 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Convertible landed in the parking lot outside of TopSpeed HQ. That car was destined to spend the next week with us, and now we want to give you our impression of the beast with a little but dominating heart.
2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is a higher performance version of the sixth-generation Mustang. A limited-edition model that revives the Mach 1 nameplate after 17 years, the 2021 Mustang Mach 1 bridges the gap between the GT and the Shelby GT350 models. It’s essentially a Mustang GT with a more aggressive exterior and some parts from the Shelby GT350. Power comes from the standard 5.0-liter V-8 from the GT, but output matches that of the limited-edition Bullitt model. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is the fifth Mach 1 pony car produced since the late 1960s.
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Has Arrived To Make Everything Right In the World
It’s been 17 years since Ford last offered a Mach 1 version of the Mustang, and the iconic nameplate finally returned. After it skipped the fifth-generation pony car, Ford revived the Mach 1 for the sixth-gen model, almost seven years after it debuted in late 2013. A bit late, we would say, but it’s better late than never. Just like its predecessors, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 combines a bold styling package with a beefed-up V-8 engine borrowed from the regular GT. Let’s see what it’s all about below.
1967 Shelby GT500CR Carbon Fiber By Classic Recreations and SpeedKore
Remember the Shelby GT500CR 900S? Silly question, of course you do. The 770-horsepower (also supercharged) muscle car concocted by Classic Recreations is not the kind of car that leaves your retina that easily and to further reinforce that statement, it just got a new all-carbon-fiber-everything attire.
Ford has introduced a new appearance package for the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 that is said to harken back to the original 1965 Shelby GT350. Although the package doesn’t include any mechanical upgrades, it does come complete with a Wimbledon White exterior paint finish and Guardsman Blue racing stripes. The front and rear will benefit from official, custom badges only available with the Heritage Edition package.
The interior, on the other hand, doesn’t see much in terms up upgrades or exclusivity. There will be a unique dash badge, though, and the seats will be finished in all black with red contrast stitching. Otherwise, the interior of the GT350 should carry over unchanged. The same can be said for the powertrain, so don’t expect any power upgrades to come with the Heritage Package, either. The 5.2-liter under the GT350’s hood will continue to deliver 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque.
In this case, the racing stripes and custom badges don’t offer an increase in performance, so you’ll still get to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and will top out on the north end of 155 mph. Pricing for the Heritage pacl is set at $1,965 but that is added on top of the $60,440 sticker price of the 2020 GT350 or the $73,435 price of the GT350R. There’s no word on availability, but it doesn’t appear as if the Heritage Package will be limited to a certain number of takers.
2020 Ford Mustang Jack Roush Edition by Roush Performance
The 2020 Ford Mustang Jack Roush Edition is a high-performance version of the sixth-generation Mustang designed by Roush Performance. Unveiled at the 2019 SEMA Show, the Jack Roush Edition is more than just another beefed-up Mustang. This special-edition model celebrates the legacy of its founder, Jack Roush, who was recently inducted in the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
Although it’s not particularly more aggressive than other Roush-made Mustangs, the Jack Roush Edition is the most powerful vehicle created by the American firm. Rated at 775 horsepower, it packs more punch than iconic Mustang nameplates like the Shelby GT500 and the Shelby Super Snake. Let’s find out more about this powerful beast in the review below.
1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 UNKL by Ringbrothers
The Ford Mustang Mach 1 UNKL is a one-of-a-kind restomod project created by Ringbrothers and showcased at the 2019 SEMA Show. The company’s first Mach 1-based project, UNKL joins a long list of cool Mustang restomods built by the company in recent years. The apparently weird UNKL name has a simple meaning, as this build was made for a customer "who enjoys a close relationship with his uncle" and "pays tribute to his uncle’s influence on his passion for cars." It’s nice to see a meaningful message behind a car name. Well, let’s find out more about this interesting project in the review below.
2020 Ford Mustang Lithium
The 2019 Ford Mustang Lithium is an all-electric version of the sixth-generation Mustang developed by Ford in collaboration with Webasto. Showcased at the 2019 SEMA Show, the Mustang Lithium is just a concept car, but it paves the way toward the Mustang-inspired electric SUV that Ford will launch in 2020. The latter is part of Ford’s plans to invest more than $11.5 billion in electric cars by 2022, so the Mustang Lithium likely features technology that will make it into production vehicles. Is this the future of Ford?
2020 Ford Mustang R-Spec
Once you see it, you can’t quite unsee it and for all the good reasons. This is the Ford Mustang R-Spec, a GT-based limited-edition variant built in RHD only for the Australian market that features a plethora of Ford Performance parts, a Roush supercharger, and an active exhaust. That makes it the first supercharged Mustang to be sold through Ford dealers. With all the goodies that have been crammed in the R-Spec, power goes all the way up to 700 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque or about 170 horsepower and 180 torques over the Mustang Shelby GT350. At $67,500 in Oz, this could just be a great bang for the buck if you can get your hands on one of the 500 examples that will be made.
It’s been five years since Australian Blue Oval fans have been mourning the loss of Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV), Ford Australia’s division that used to turn around the really quick Fords at the antipodes. While nothing can replace a Falcon with all of FPV’s go-fast features added to it, the R-Spec Mustang is a nice addition to the sports car’s lineup in Australia where, until now, all you had to choose from when it came to ’special’ Mustangs was the Bullitt - and only 700 of those have been made for the 2019 MY (the R-Spec is part of the 2020 MY Mustang lineup).
2019 Ford Mustang by Austin Cindric and Tucci Hot Rods
This year’s SEMA Auto Show is expected to host some of the finest aftermarket vehicles of the year. That’s the typical run of the order when it comes to the world’s biggest tuner show. The Ford Mustang will undoubtedly be well-represented in the event, as is the case pretty much every year. This time, though, three custom-built, one-off Mustangs will be at SEMA, including this dandy of a build from Team Penske race car driver Austin Cindric and aftermarket tuner extraordinaire Tucci Hot Rods.
Together, the two parties worked to create what is arguably one of the most impressive Mustang builds we’ve seen in a while. It comes with important aesthetic and aerodynamic upgrades, some of which were created through non-traditional means. This Mustang also has an identity that it can call its own, thanks to several personal touches that were included to celebrate Cindric’s family roots in motor racing. Best of all, this Mustang packs the meanest engine upgrade program among the three one-off Mustangs. It’s the most powerful of the lot, and that says something considering that the other Mustangs that are included in MoneyLion’s “HEAR WE ROAR” sweepstakes are both packing 700 horsepower on their own. This one beats both, and it is awesome.
2019 Ford Mustang by Joey Logano and Vaughn Gittin Jr.
The 2019 SEMA Auto Show is going to be so full with custom-built creations that it’s going to be hard to stand out unless you have jet boosters in tow. But for this particular Ford Mustang GT, standing out shouldn’t be a problem. It was created specifically for that purpose by two men — 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) Champion Joey Logano and World Champion Drifter and founder of RTR Motorsports, Vaughn Gittin Jr. — who know a thing or two about custom-built performance cars.
This one-off Mustang is officially called the Ford RTR Mustang, and it’s one of the three Mustangs that are featured in mobile bank MoneyLion’s “HERE WE ROAR” sweepstakes. Beyond its exclusivity — it’s a one-off model — the RTR Mustang fits the bill of perfect SEMA showpiece. It’s heavily dressed in aftermarket goodies and it boasts a completely upgraded performance setup, highlighted by an engine upgrade program that unleashes a new level of power and performance from Ford’s iconic muscle car. The 2019 RTR Mustang is meant to attend the 2019 SEMA Auto Show. Fortunately, that’s exactly where we’re going to see it before it finds a lucky new owner by way of MoneyLion’s sweepstakes.
2019 Ford Mustang by Ryan Blaney and David Chen
The Ford Mustang is a fixture at the SEMA Auto Show, and this year will be no different. Fresh from the aftermarket oven comes this current-generation Ford Mustang GT. It comes by way of mobile bank MoneyLion’s “HERE WE ROAR” sweepstakes and it’s one of three custom-tuned Mustangs that can be won through the competition.
This particular Mustang was created by Team Penske NASCAR Cup Series driver Ryan Blaney and world-renowned automotive photographer Larry Chen. Both received help from some of the best tuners in the country, and the result is a 700-horsepower performance machine that can set drag strips and race tracks on fire.
2019 Ford Mustang GT
The Ford Mustang has a rich history that dates all the way back to the 1962 Ford Mustang I two-seater concept. It wasn’t until mid-1964 that it was introduced in production form (just two weeks after Plymouth introduced the first Barracuda) and has been in production ever since, with the sixth-generation model, the model you see here, being introduced in 2015. For one reason or another, we haven’t had a chance to get our hands on a sixth-gen model, but all that has changed now, and we happened to be graced with the 2019 Ford Mustang GT Convertible. With the bright green pony car sitting in our parking lot, we couldn’t wait to drive it. And, despite the fact that we had a whole week to get acquainted, we got right to putting the GT Convertible, and its 5.0-liter V-8 to the test.
Does it compete well with the Chevy Camaro Convertible? What about, on the other end of the spectrum, the BMW 4 Series Cabriolet? Well, this is our experience and what we thought about it. Strap in folks, this is going to be one long ride.
2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 by Hennessey
The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is the kind of car you buy if you’re into power, speed, and performance. It’s also the kind of car you buy if you’re not afraid of what all of that can do to you. Oh, and it’s also the car you buy if you want to get any of these tuning programs that are available specifically for the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500. There are three tuning programs in total: Venom 850, Venom 1000, and Venom 1200. Each one offers power and performance upgrades to the Shelby GT500’s 5.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine. I suppose the amount of extra power you want depends on what you can handle on the race track. Let it be said, though, that when Hennessey builds a tuning kit for a muscle car that’s already dripping in power and torque, these kits aren’t the types you buy when you want to use them for your weekend errands. These kits are the types you buy when you want to go balls-to-the-wall on the racetrack.
2019 Ford Mustang "Old Crow" by Roush
Ford’s Mustang is one of the most famous nameplates in the entire automotive industry and this the exact same thing that an aeronautics fan would say referring to the perennial favorite fighter plane from the days of the Second World War, the North American P-51 Mustang. Now, there’s a road-going Mustang that pays tribute to the one in the sky. It’s a Roush-tuned GT with almost as much power as a Shelby GT500 and a paint scheme that reminds everyone of the legendary ’Old Crow’ P-51D Mustang that Colonel Clarence ’Bud’ Anderson flew in combat during the War.
Jack Roush’s shop has been turning out wickedly fast Ford cars for decades but this particular one-off build is one that’s close to the founder’s heart. As past owner of no less than two P-51s that he turned into replicas of Colonel Anderson’s ’Old Crow’ fighter plane that he flew for over six continuous hours on D-Day, Roush was happy to take on this project. The Mustang will be up for grabs at the upcoming EAA AirVenture charity auction that’ll take place on July 25th in Oshkosh. While this isn’t the first airplane-themed Mustang ever made, it’s one that was also built to mark the 75-year commemoration of D-Day.
1967 Ford Mustang EV by Charge Cars
Electrifying older cars is an area with huge potential because the vehicles that result from such conversions have classic style and modern performance, all with zero tailpipe emissions. That’s why projects like this 1967 Ford Mustang that’s been modified by Charge Cars in the UK is so intriguing because it not only (still) looks the part, but it’s also blisteringly fast and packed with cool tech too.
When you say Ford Mustang, it can conjure up a very wide and different array of iconic models in peoples head. Most will probably associate the name with a V-8 coupe of some sort or maybe an old-school muscle car, but nowadays you can buy the Mustang as a drop-top four-cylinder. And, we bet you aren’t yet convinced whether one is worth the money or not.
Well, it depends a lot on what you plan to do with your new Mustang. If you want to have a fast daily that’s properly quick, you get the V8-powered GT. Meanwhile, if you want to take your car to regular track days, you spring for the GT350R, widely acknowledged as being the best car ever to bear a Mustang badge. So, where does that leave the Mustang convertible with a four-pot? It’s for people who don’t want to go around corners at crazy speeds faster than the next car just have to out-accelerate most cars on the road.
It has softer suspension than the hardtop, and because it has no roof, it doesn’t have the coupe’s structural rigidity. This translates into a far more relaxed driving experience where you are not edged to drive faster, brake later, and whip the car’s tail out at every opportunity. It can still do all these things very well, but when you subject it to them, the feedback it provides you suggests it is not enjoying the treatment.
As a swift cruiser that looks great and, maybe more importantly, you look cool in, there are few better cars out there for the money. Its turbocharged engine is pokey enough to make any overtaking maneuver a breeze, and because it is downsized, it returns much better efficiency numbers compared to the V-8. The automatic gearbox on our tester could have been snappier, and even though this convertible is a really relaxed flavor of Mustang, getting it with the six-speed stick makes a lot of sense.
