Mustang Mach-E 1400 ripping the streets of Detroit


At the end of 2020, Ford released the prototype Mustang Mach-E 1400 on the streets of Detroit for Ford Auto Nights. The Mustang Mach-E 1400 has a total of seven engines – three on the front differential and four on the rear. Overall, we’re looking at the aforementioned goal of 1,400 horsepower plus 2,300 pounds of downforce at 160 mph (just look at all of the aero work in carbon fiber!). This power and arrangement can be tinkered with front and rear axles for various purposes, regardless of whether front, rear or all-wheel drive is desired for the track or for drifting. Ford says it will use “completely different front-end configurations like wishbones and steering changes” for different applications. It also features regenerative braking for energy recovery, Brembo brakes to stop and a hydraulic handbrake system specially designed for drifting, with built-in driveline controls that can be used to interrupt the power of the rear motors.
