Last April, Ford unleashed the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400, an all-electric tribute to the original Cobra Jet drag machine of the 1960s. And now, the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 will make its first public appearance this weekend at the NHRA U.S. Nationals. “Since revealing the car, we’ve continued to fine-tune it and now know we’re just scratching the surface of … Continue reading

Ford has unleashed two new versions of its GT supercar for 2021: GT Heritage Edition and Ford GT Studio collection. The Ford GT Heritage Edition pays homage to the American carmaker’s historic victory at the Daytona 24-Hour endurance race 55 years ago. The car in question is a 1966 Ford GT MK II driven by Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby. … Continue reading
The Ford GT is one of the most rare and valuable American supercars ever produced. There are a few even more limited versions of the Ford GT in the mix, including the Heritage Edition models that wear liveries meant to pay homage to successful racing cars in Ford’s past. One of the coolest Heritage Edition cars were the iconic blue … Continue reading

The Mustang Mach-E isn’t even at dealerships yet, but that hasn’t stopped Ford Performance and RTR from turning the EV into a seven motor, 1,400 horsepower race and drift beast. The Mustang Mach-E 1400 starts out with the body of the upcoming Mustang Mach-E GT, but then Ford’s engineers along with motorsports icon Vaughn Gittin Jr. lay on the power … Continue reading
Ford Performance has worked with RTR Vehicles to create a Mustang Mach-E that cranks out 1,400 all-electric horsepower. The Mustang Mach-E 1400 is a one-off prototype that has seven motors and can drift as well as it drag races. Mark Rushbrook, Motorsports Director for Ford Performance, talked to Business Insider about the insane machine. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. "It's big number," Mark Rushbrook, the Motorsports Director for Ford's Performance division, said. You could accuse him of understatement. He was talking about a one-off prototype of the Mustang Mach-E. When the all-electric vehicle was revealed last year, extending the Mustang brand for the first time since 1965, models started at 266 horsepower and moved up to 459 horsepower, depending in configuration. The Mustang Mach-E 1400, however, lives up to its name: it generates a staggering 1,400 horsepower. A big number, indeed.  "We wanted to push the boundaries of engineering," Rushbrook said in an interview with Insider. FOLLOW US: On Facebook for more car and transportation content! The all-electric Mustang Mach-E arrived in 2019 The vehicle was launched with much fanfare in late 2019, with plans to bring it to market in late 2020. The coronavirus pandemic has threatened Ford's scheduling, but consumers have still been placing $500 order reservations.  The Mach-E will be available in three trim levels, with both rear-wheel and all-wheel-drive choices.  The Mustang Mach-E takes the basic Mach-E to a whole new level "As it sits right now, it's a one off," Rushbrook said. "We built it without considering a specific racing series." He added that the Mach-E 1400 is "more of a blank canvas — to show what the new platform is capable of." Engineers were impressed with the basics that they started with, as they developed a bespoke powertrain. For example, while the top-spec GT trim level (due to arrive in 2021) has two electric motors, the 1400 has ... seven. "The battery is nice and low, and that helps handling," Rushbrook said. "The architecture and the car's bones are very much performance-oriented. We wanted to take that to the next level." The Mach-E 1400 wasn't designed to be simply a straight-line-fast drag racer According to Rushbrook, Ford Performance decided to make the car an all-around athlete, able to blast down a drag strip, but also drift in a plume of tire smoke — and tackle something like the road course at Daytona International Speedway in Florida, host of the annual Rolex 24 endurance race. "Performing at all levels required the powertrain to [produce] high torque, and the tires had to have grip," he added.  Enter the team that developed the wizardly aerodynamics on the Ford GT supercar, the racing version of which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its class in 2016. These engineers were able to reduce drag and create 2,300 lbs. of downforce, to keep the Mach-E 1400 stuck to the tarmac — at 160 mph! 10,000 hours of collaborative work to develop an electric beast that can do it all Ford said that Mach-E 1400 could be used for drifting and for competition on different track setups.  "Power delivery can be split evenly between front and rear, or completely to one or the other," the carmaker revealed in a statement. Ford added that the car has a "56.8-kilowatt-hour battery made up of nickel manganese cobalt pouch cells for ultra-high performance and high discharge rate." Heat is the enemy of electric cars, and high-performance EVs are notorious for giving out after brief stints of speed. But Ford said the Mach-E 1400's "battery system is designed to be cooled during charging, decreasing the time needed between runs." Ford Performance developed the Mustang Mach-E 1400 with RTR Vehicles, known for its Mustang mods Rushbrook is no stranger to Mustangs. He oversaw the 2005 redesign of the icon, its fifth generation. "I thought that was the pinnacle," Rushbrook said of a job that tends to be extremely coveted at Ford. Little did he know that fresh challenges were ahead. Not to mention opportunities for understatement, like what he has here with the Mach-E 1400. "I'm a very fortunate person," he said.
Images: Ford Performance About a year ago, before the Mustang Mach-E broke cover, Ford’s motorsports division quietly started work on something outrageous: a one-off version of the electric vehicle that makes 1,400 horsepower. Now, the company is showing it off for the first time. Dubbed the Mustang Mach-E 1400, it’s a wicked-looking three-seater demonstration car that screams like a banshee and smokes tires like they’re kindling. Equipped with a massive rear wing, aerodynamic bodywork, and seven — yes, seven — electric motors, the Mustang Mach-E 1400 has a top speed of around 160 miles per hour. It can presumably reach that speed in very quick fashion, though Ford says it hasn’t yet benchmarked a 0-60 mph or quarter-mile time. Powered by seven — yes, seven —... Continue reading…
All eyes may have been on the new Bronco this week, but Ford’s other big truck news of late, the Mustang Mach-E, seems intent on stealing back the limelight. Announced last year, the electric crossover heads to dealerships later in 2020, though the feistiest Mustang Mach-E GT won’t arrive until next year. There may, though, be something even more excessive than … Continue reading

Looking at the current state of the automotive industry, eco-awareness is evidently on top of the list.Manufacturers are progressively adopting green alternatives to reduce the impact combustion engines have on the environment.Ford, on the other hand, is introducing something remarkable with a new all-electric Mustang Lithium that comes equipped with a manual transmission.What makes this American electric muscle car so groundbreaking is the innovative drivetrain configuration.Conventionally, EVs are designed to run on electric motors paired with a single-speed transmission system.Compared to traditional engines, battery-powered machines do not require multiple gears to reach the desired speed without an impact to torque.
There may be a hybrid Mustang coming, but Ford’s legendary pony car has gone all-electric for a custom SEMA 2019 vision of what a performance EV could deliver.Unveiled today at the Las Vegas show, the Mustang Lithium is the fruit of a collaboration between Ford and Webasto, packing more than 1,000 lb-ft of torque to play with.Outside, the Mustang Lithium looks much like its gasoline counterpart.Ford did add new Sankuer Composite Technologies side splitters and a rear diffuser, though, along with custom carbon fiber body components.It’s fueled by an 800 volt Webasto battery system, and delivers not only that 1,000+ lb-ft of torque but over 900 horsepower, too.The Mustang Lithium, however, has a six-speed manual, based on the Getrag MT82.
Ford has revealed some of its upgraded trucks that will be on display at the 2019 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show (SEMA) on November 5-8.Most of the upgrades are geared toward outdoorsy people, with the exception of the Tjin Edition Ford Ranger, which was lowered to a "street-ready stance.""The automotive aftermarket space continues to grow at a tremendous pace from powerful street machines to the latest trends in overlanding and off-road," Ford Vehicle Personalization and Accessories Global Director Eric Cin said in a statement.The upgraded truck has stronger bumpers, a skid plate to shield its underbelly, rock sliders to protect the chassis, and Ford Performance features.There's also an aluminum tray bed with a canopy, a tent, and a 50-quart refrigerator.The tent, stove, and first-aid kit make the truck outdoor-ready.
It's that time of year again -- good lord no, I am not talking about the holiday season.It's nearly SEMA show time, and automakers are busy previewing the latest builds meant to flex aftermarket companies' muscles.The F-150s shown on Thursday, however, cover both the mild and wild side of things.The F-150 Sport Crew Cab headed to the Vegas trade show features a black appearance package.They include a Fox suspension kit with Ford Performance tuning, Rigid LED lighting, a Borla cat-back exhaust and 22-inch off-road tires.Custom graphics and smoked badges complete the look.
It knows truck owners spend a lot of their hard-earned cash on aftermarket accessories to make their pickups even tougher off-road.That leads us to today's unsurprising collaborative effort.Ford Performance and ARB 4x4 Accessories will work together on a slew of new off-road accessories and vehicle recovery parts for owners, and the first to benefit is the Ford Ranger.The two designed a new front bumper that includes a winch for vehicle recovery.This is about as tough as the Ranger will look in standard guise since North America won't be treated to a Ranger Raptor.Slap this bumper on an FX4 model and equip the optional Raptor-inspired suspension package, and you'll be closer to a midsize off-road warrior.
Turns out, if exorbitant horsepower and torque at your disposal is your guiding star, the new Shelby GT500 will outshine just about everything else in the muscle car scene.It got me thinking: with all that power on tap, can the new Shelby GT500 hope to be more than just a muscle car now?The new supercharger has a high-twist, four-lobe rotor design.Combined with the engine’s high-flow aluminum cylinder heads, larger forged connecting rods, and wire-arc cylinder liners, you have a drivetrain that produces enough power to keep “proper” supercars at bay.Certainly, I can tell you the new GT500 is the most refined muscle car I’ve driven in a while.Sure enough, the full-throated Mustang was enough to catch his attention and nearly net me a ticket, not to mention a lesson that the Shelby GT500 can gather speed so easily that you can’t afford to not be on your toes.
Parrot’s latest iteration on its flagship Anafi drone is all about immersion.But instead of a dedicated screen inside the goggles, Parrot’s approach is to have users slot a smartphone in, similar to headsets like the Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard.The Anafi FPV package will cost $799 when it goes on sale later this month.It will include the drone, the glasses, a controller, extra propellers, a battery, a 16GB microSD card, and a USB-C cable.The Anafi FPV also comes with a new backpack that Parrot says can “double as a stable platform” for launching the drone.Drone racers are leveraging the skills they’ve developed in competition into side gigs shooting commercials, creating videos that go viral, and even capturing live footage during sporting events like Formula Drift.
We know what this feels like, Europe.For years, the continent's residents have been able to purchase an Audi RS6 Avant as we watched in sadness.While Yanks will finally have their chance to buy the super wagon, we're sad to report America will not oblige with the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.Ford Performance Marketing Manager Jim Ownes told Muscle Cars & Trucks on Tuesday that the Shelby GT500 will not be sold in Europe.Instead, the US, Canada, Mexico and Middle East will have a crack at purchasing the potent pony car.As a refresher, the Shelby GT500 will come with a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 good for 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque.
The 760-horsepower Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang is the most powerful street machine the car maker has ever built.In a first, the GT500 will have a dual-clutch, seven-speed transmission when it goes on sale next year.But that's nothing compared with the new 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and its staggering 760 ponies.We've been waiting for the GT500 ever since it was teased at the Detroit Auto Show a few years ago and officially unveiled earlier this, but without a specific power rating.But the Mustang Shelby GT500 is the most powerful car Ford has produced in in 116-year history, and it now joins the mega-horsepower party.(Ford hasn't yet revealed pricing.)
The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 may not have a manual gearbox option, but the automaker is hoping its trick new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission will scratch that enthusiast itch anyway.The 760 horsepower coupe isn’t expected to hit dealership forecourts until Fall 2019, but Ford can’t help but drip out some of the most teasing details ahead of the order books opening.Underneath the bulging hood will be what Ford is calling the most power- and torque-dense supercharged V8 in the world.It delivers 760 hp and 625 lb-ft of torque from its 5.2-liters, legitimately described as supercar numbers given they comfortably outdo the power figures of the Ford GT.The result is the TR-9070 DCT 7-speed, a transmission designed to be just as much at home on the road as it is on the track.It uses a new wet clutch system that has five friction plates in the odd-gear pack, and six in the even-gear pack.
DJI is making a fairly bold move into the world of first-person view (FPV) and racing drones with a new equipment kit announced today.The kit is mainly comprised of new FPV goggles and a small, high-definition camera and “air unit” (or transmitter) that can be attached to pretty much whatever you like.The focus is obviously on the drones, though, and what DJI is selling here could offer big benefits in resolution, frame rate, and flexibility.The $819 “FPV Experience” combo doesn’t include a controller, but it comes with the goggles and two air units and cameras.DJI will sell a $929 “Fly More” version that includes a Phantom-style controller with new internals built to handle the low-latency transmission, the goggles, and just one air unit and camera.In the event of a crash, the on-goggle recording allows for quick playback that can help a pilot determine where their drone went down and ensure they walk away with some footage in the event of a loss of the microSD card on the drone.
DJI is preparing to release a first-person-view drone alongside goggles and a remote controller, according to documents recently published by the FCC.The filings cover three products, hinting at DJI’s upcoming launch in the FPV drone racing market, something it dabbled in with its previous DJI Goggles Racing Edition, a $550 headset launched in 2018.The three documents, which were recently spotted by DroneDJ, detail a ‘DJI FPV Air Unit P1AS1901,’ ‘DJI FPV Remote Controller P1RC1901,’ and ‘DJI FPV Goggles P1GS1902.’ Each listing includes some documentation about the products, though few details, as well as a couple of label illustrations (below).Unfortunately, none of the filings include photos of the devices at this time.The page for the DJI FPV drone includes a section for ‘External photos’ that indicates the FCC received images from DJI yesterday, but that they won’t be available until September 9.A confidentiality letter published by the FCC shows a 45-day ‘secrecy’ cycle covering the external and internal photos, test set-up photos, and user’s manual.
DJI appears to be readying the release of a first-person-view (FPV) drone, according to FCC filings spotted by DroneDJ.Three products — a “DJI FPV Air Unit,” “DJI FPV Remote Controller,” and “DJI FPV Goggles” — were recently registered with the government agency.DJI has dabbled with FPV drones in the past.The company released a PlayStation VR-sized headset dubbed DJI Goggles in 2017 that worked with a few different DJI drones.But that somewhat clunky solution was about as far as the Chinese company ever went with the idea.Meanwhile, an “FPV air unit” with dedicated goggles and a controller sounds more like a drone built for racing, or at the very least, high maneuverability.
Ford is talking up what it will be doing at the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK next month.The big thing for Ford is a special announcement having to do with the Ford GT sports car.Ford Performance’s Hermann Salenbauch and Multimatic’s Larry Holt will make the special Ford GT announcement.The announcement will happen at 4:45 am EDT on July 4 at Goodwood.Ford is coy about the announcement with no details on what it will talk about other than the lone teaser image you see here.The thought it this might be a new Ford GT street car; it might be a new racer as well.
The New Ford Ranger Raptor for Vehicle Marchant in their Cost ReviewThe basic evaluating offer which kept running for more than 5 months got a mind-boggling reaction from car dealership idea Filipino to get truck fans and fans with the number of clients who held and bought their Ranger Raptor, said Bert Lessard, overseeing chief, Ford Philippines.We trust the new estimating stays extremely aggressive with the execution, power, and fragment driving highlights the Ranger Raptor offers.As it expected money related harm of P 1,998,000 now a P 100,000 increment contrasted with on the off chance that you held a car dealership event ideas Ranger Raptor yesterday.Forceful, light-footed deadly these are the film's fearsome predators and at the unimportant sight of them is sufficient to shake Jell-O out of a child's hands.Passage and their go-quick division car dealership sales event ideas for Performance figured as far and away as well and figured that there's no name progressively fitting to strike dread in the pickup truck portion.
When the GT350 debuted for the 2016 model year, the centerpiece of the new Shelby was undoubtedly Ford’s new 5.2-liter Voodoo V8.High revving and full of character, the 526 horsepower naturally aspirated mill was a great match for a Mustang designed with track prowess in mind.But while the limited production GT350R showed just how capable the sixth generation Mustang’s platform could be when dialed in for serious road course performance, the gap between it and the standard GT350 proved to be more sizable than the spec sheet initially suggested, as the latter’s more conservative tire and suspension package, in particular, made the standard Shelby feel more like a garden-variety GT with an engine swap rather than a legitimate track weapon.That discrepancy became even more glaring last year with the introduction of Performance Pack 2, an options package that bestowed the GT with more aggressive handling hardware than the 2018 Shelby GT350 was equipped with.Is the new Shelby worth the price of admission?Whether that’s good or bad is largely subjective, but this author considers it a win.
After its initial debut in 2015, the sixth-generation Mustang has added a number of performance iterations to the roster, like the track-focused Shelby GT350 and GT350R, as well as the more budget-friendly Performance Pack 2 options package for the standard GT and the Bullitt special edition.While every one of those hopped-up ponies is a solid performer in its own right, none have the sheer grunt required to go toe-to-toe with the most potent hardware coming out of Dodge and Chevrolet factories.But while the GT500 looks promising, it still has yet to land in Ford’s showroom.And when it does, it will lack an option that all of the GT500’s direct competitors offer: A manual gearbox.For those who are tired of playing the waiting game, or want to row their own gears, or simply want something a little different that won’t be subject to exorbitant dealer markups, Roush Performance offers another option.Founded in 1995 by automotive industry luminary Jack Roush, the tuning company has specialized in hot-rodding Ford’s factory offerings for the past quarter century, amassing a collection of more than 1,500 performance parts for models like the Mustang, Focus, and F-Series pickups.
Talk of Ford Mustang performance usually centers around V8 engines, but Ford is now giving the 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine an upgrade.The 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost gets an available “High Performance Package” that adds more power, as well as chassis upgrades from the V8 Mustang GT.The Mustang’s EcoBoost four-banger is related to the engine used in the discontinued Focus RS hot hatchback.So a team at Ford Performance decided to put a Focus RS engine in a Mustang as an experiment.From there, they developed a production-ready group of upgrades for the Mustang EcoBoost.Performance-package models get a slightly different engine block and cylinder head, as well as a larger turbocharger.
