The new Mustang Mach 1 is what we call a "parts bin special." Sometimes that's bad, but in this case, that's very very good. It has the 480HP Coyote V8 from the BULLITT, the subframes, transmission, and suspension tuning from the GT350, and it has the cooling capacity of the GT500. Depending on how you slice it, it's either the best Mustang GT ever made, or it's a Shelby GT350 without the engine warranty claims. (Don't be mad at us, Shelby people - we love the Voodoo engine, but we all know it's problematic in practice). Optional equipment on our tester includes leather trimmed Recaro bucket seats, the "Handling Package," and Bang & Olufsen stereo.

Ford provided the vehicle, insurance, and a tank of fuel for this review.
