Richard Hammond drives the new Ford Mustang Mach 1


We all know Richard Hammond loves a Ford Mustang, so we decided to give him a proper treat - a test track all to himself, and the brand new Mustang Mach 1. Being the most track-focussed Mustang Ford has ever brought to European soil, the scene was set for Richard to have some serious fun.
This video was made in partnership with Ford UK.

    It has the steering wheel on the correct side. It has the wrong exhaust that is only available in the UK. The right exhaust is only available in North America.

    Why does everyone always dodge the mpg question lol. Ford, and other manufacturers have made it so that you can have your cake and eat it too. Sure it doesn’t compare to a 4 cylinder econobox, but the old ideas of big v8s not allowing decent mpg is outdated. Mach 1 is 15 city and 23 hwy. other 5.0 offerings are roughly the same, getting 24-25. Even beyond that though, many builders have made 4-500hp v8 powered vehicles that can manage 19-21.

    I'm a Brit now living in the US, cars like these seem very glamorous in the UK but are ten a penny here (obviously), can be picked up for next to nothing, after all at the end of the day it's just a Ford.

    i agree that it may still have the spirit but i feel the shape has been ruined as its now the size of a small SUV but still a coupe. maybe thats just what the future looks like but i dont like it if thats the case. just an opinion, take it with a grain of salt.

    I drove a new GT and a Ferrari California Spyder within a week of each other and was shocked at how close they are to each other in driving dynamics. This is why marketing is paramount for some companies.

    Shame the MACH 1 is so slow.. 4.4sec and top speed of 155?? I hope it's cheap at least. Something here needs to make sense. A Focus RS does better numbers than this.. for way less money. I'm so confused.

    What I love about The Mustang is how it’s an underdog that punches above its weight class. It was the leather jacketed street tough that could win against professionally trained fighters. When you look at the donor platforms: Fairmont/Sierra, Falcon, (I guess I have to mention the Pinto) it’s a working class hero... until it received a Jaguar chassis.

    Dear Mr Hammond. If the Mustang is a road car, and it's agreed normal drivers won't need a crash helmet to drive it, ... why do you need to wear one?

    I hope the paint on the hood does not peel like on my Mustang GT, Expedition and Explorer Sport. Ford wont do anything for the customer. PS They didn't do right by me after buying a new 2006 Ford GT with the 4 options Like Jeremy Clarkson used to own Supercar either. All of my Fords have had to go back many times for different recalls except my 1969 Shelby. Cheers.
