A day after teasers were posted by the American company Ford on its Facebook and Twitter pages, yesterday evening witnessed the launch of a 1400 hp Ford sports car.
A Drift show on the track accompanied by a group of modified Mustang cars driven by professional drivers was the best way to reveal the new Ford Mustang Mach E 1400 – the new electric car dedicated to racing.
The Mustang Mach-E 1400 is the result of 10,000 hours of collaboration by Ford Performance and RTR aimed at bridging the gap between what an electric vehicle can do and what customers tend to believe it can do.
Mustang Mach-E 1400, which is set to debut at a NASCAR race soon, serves as a testbed for new materials. The hood is made of organic composite fibers, a lightweight alternative to the carbon fiber that comprises the rest of the vehicle.
Other professional drivers participated in this show, including Hailie Deegan., Joey Logano, Chelsea DeNofa, and Ken Block who drove his world-famous Mustang Hoonicorn RTR.
Mustang Mach-E 1400 has seven motors – five more than even Mustang Mach-E GT. Three are attached to the front differential and four are attached to the rear in pancake style, with a single driveshaft connecting them to the differentials, which have a huge range of adjustability to set the car up for everything from drifting to high-speed track racing.
The 56.8-kilowatt-hour battery (installed) is made up of nickel manganese cobalt pouch cells for ultra-high performance and high discharge rate. The battery system is designed to be cooled during charging using a di-electric coolant, decreasing the time needed between runs.
As we are talking about a 1400 hp Ford car dedicated to racing downforce of the Mach-E 1400 is targeted at more than 1000 kg at 257 mph.
