Watch The Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 Do Some Insane Drifts And Donuts
The Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 looks great in the photos, but now is the time to see the mighty electric vehicle in motion. The seven electric motors create a banshee scream while operating with a variety of other high powered Mustangs, including Ken Block’s Hoonicorn.
With 1,400 horsepower (1,044) kilowatts put into service by seven electric motors, this unique model has absolutely no problem igniting the tires. Smoke rises from the wheel arches when the machine turns 360 degrees.
The Mach-E 1400 has an adjustable configuration that can operate as front, rear, or all-wheel drive. The aggressive bodywork with a huge front splitter and massive rear spoiler produces over 2,300 pounds (1,043 kilograms) at 160 miles per hour (258 kilometers per hour). While we can see a bit of how well the electric crossover sticks to a track in this video, the smoky drifts are a much more dramatic sight.
The video above highlights the process of building the Mach-E 1400. Ford Performance and RTR started off with a Mach-E body in white. The complete overhaul includes the installation of massive heaters at both ends to cool transmission components like electric motors, inverters and batteries. The revised steering components increase the steering range of the front wheels to allow for large drifts.
The team also adds Brembo brakes and a hydraulic handbrake with a huge grip next to the driver. Despite the changes, the Mach-E 1400 is still capable of regenerative braking and has an ABS system.
RTR and Ford Performance plan to display the Mach-E 1400 at upcoming NASCAR races. Hopefully there will be another opportunity to film the EV on a track, so we can have another look at its impressive performance.
