Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 is a wild, unbridled prototype


Ford has teamed up with RTR Vehicles to create the Mustang Mach-E 1400 — an all-electric prototype that boasts an estimated 1,400 hp and a wild-looking bodywork.

It is built off a Mustang Mach-E GT body-in-white, with ridiculously large canards, massive side intakes & outlets, an insanely large rear wing, and of course, a wild diffuser. Ford says that the prototype serves as a test bed for new materials as several components including the hood are made of organic composite fibers — a lightweight alternative to the carbon fibre.

Downforce is targeted at more than 2,300 lbs (1,043 kg) at 160 mph (257 km/h).

The Mach-E 1400 prototype has got 4 seats too and the same massive touchscreen as the production Mach-E. There’s also a mode called ‘Unbridled’. If that doesn’t impress you, it has got a total of 7 (yes, seven) electric motors developing the aforementioned 1,400 hp — same as the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400. 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.

The motors draw juice from a 56.8 kWh battery pack made up of nickel manganese cobalt pouch cells, primarily for a high discharge rate. The battery system is designed to be cooled during charging using a di-electric coolant, decreasing the time needed between runs.

Ford said that the Mustang Mach-E 1400 will debut at a NASCAR race soon.
