A closer look at the insane 1400 HP 7-engine Ford Mustang Mach-E

Ford is clearly focused not only on producing an electric car that is designed for quiet commuting and hands-free calling, but also creates excitement alongside the electricity. Enter the all-electric Mustang Mach-E 1

400 – a unique prototype developed in collaboration with RTR Vehicles to demonstrate the power capabilities of the electric drive.

Add five motors and a 56.8-kilowatt-hour nickel-manganese-cobalt ultra-high-performance battery to a Mustang Mach-E GT body in white, and you get the following:

  • 1,400 peak performance,
  • 2300 pounds downforce at 150 mph,
  • A game changer for an upcoming NASCAR race.

“Now is the perfect time to use electrical engineering, learn from it, and apply it to our range,” said Ron Heiser, chief program engineer at Mustang Mach-E. “The Mustang Mach-E will be fun, just like any other Mustang before, but the Mustang Mach-E 1400 is completely crazy thanks to the efforts of Ford Performance and RTR.”

From the racing toolbox

With many of the same tools that Ford uses for its racing cars and production programs, aerodynamics are optimized in shape and location, with an emphasis on cooling channels, front splitter, submersible aircraft and rear wing.

The additional motors are split between the front and rear drive axles, with the added advantage that they can be adapted to different types of performance, from drifting to high-speed track racing. The power output can be distributed evenly between front and back or completely between one or the other.
