Eric's Autos: 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1
How much is a $60k Mustang worth?
Every cent -- plus change.
That's not quite what it costs to buy a new Mach 1 -- if you don't opt for everything -- but even if you do, it'd be worth the spend.
Because of the drive.
What It Is
The Mach 1 is a functionally and visually amped-up version of the Mustang GT: the iconic muscle car Ford has been building since 1964. It comes with everything the regular GT has, including the 5.0-liter V8, but it also comes with its output kicked up to 480 horsepower -- along with a bellowing four-pipe-tipped exhaust system, vise-grip Brembo brakes tucked inside 19-inch light allow wheels, track-ready suspension and exterior/interior visuals to match.
Plus, it has some parts picked from the discontinued GT350 and the still-available but much more spendy (and automatic-only) GT500.
The Mach 1 stickers for $51,720 -- a $15,600 bump up over the asking price of a base Mustang GT, which is a helluva car itself and worth every cent of that, too.
But some things are worth more, even if you can't put a price on them.
