SEMA 2021: 3 Ford Mustang Mach-E and 2 Mustang Coupes Previewed
SEMA 2021 is underway, but before the show kicked off, a preview of five Ford Mustangs. These five vehicles are just a small slice of what Ford brought to the massive aftermarket accessories show. Among the custom, builds are interesting takes on the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the 2021 Ford Mustang coupe. Let’s take a closer look.
Austin Hatcher Foundation Ford Mustang Mach-E GT AWD
The first SEMA 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E we are featuring is arguably the most important. This particular Mach-E was designed and built by the Austin Hatcher Foundation to help families fighting against pediatric cancer through occupational and diversion therapy programs.
The “Space White” Mach-E is equipped with a custom-made carbon fiber front splitter and rear wing from Archetype Racing. The EV is also fitted with a set of 20-inch Rotiform Alloy R-159 OZR wheels and brakes from Brembo. An adjustable Motion Control Suspension system is added to change the ride height on the fly.
After SEMA, this 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E will be taken to the 2022 Bonneville Speed Week to attempt a 200 mph speed run. In 2023 this Mach-E will be auctioned off with the proceeds benefitting the Austin Hatcher Foundation’s nationwide operations.
Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT SEMA 2021 concept
The name “Shelby” is synonymous with Ford. The legendary tuner has partnered with the American automaker for decades and collaborated with the brand to create iconic vehicles such as the GT40, and Shelby GT350, and GT500 Mustangs.
For SEMA 2021, Shelby American teamed up with Ford to imagine what a “Shelby” Ford Mustang Mach-E could look like. The Mach-E features a custom-made graphene-infused carbon fiber body kit which includes a redesigned front fascia, front fenders, and rear flares.
Finishing off the exterior is a set of custom-cut 20-inch Shelby monoblock wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport EV tires.
Tjin Edition Mustang Mach-E California Route One
Neil Tjin is a stalwart figure of the tuner community. Tjin’s award-winning custom builds have been featured on television, in films, and at car shows across the country. Neil’s company Tjin Edition has had a long-standing relationship with Ford and has produced several SEMA builds for the automaker over the last decade.
For SEMA 2021, Tjin is taking on the Ford Mustang Mach-E and is creating a concept he calls the “California Route One.” The car starts with a bright orange paint meant to contrast with teal green accents in custom LIGHTWURKZ headlights.
Tjin also applied custom-built solar panels on the roof that are wired to charge a custom-painted teal-green RayVolt USA electric bicycle. In true California style, Tjin equipped the Mach-E with an air-lift suspension, so he can slam it to the ground at local meets and lift it for ground clearance when needed.
All Star SEMA 2021 Ford Mustang EcoBoost HPP
While Neil Tjin focused on the Mach-E for SEMA 2021, his brother, Gene Tjin, went a different route. Gene was assigned a 2021 Ford Mustang EcoBoost, which is dubbed “High-Performance Edition.” Gene sprayed his Mustang EcoBoost in teal and painted the Baer Brake calipers orange for contrast as a reverse of Neil’s orange and teal Mach-E.
Gene’s Mustang also features a custom Air Lift suspension just like his brother’s Mach-E. The Mustang EcoBoost High-Performance Edition is adorned with an Anderson Composites body kit for downforce and style. Finishing off the exterior is a set of white Vossen LC2-A1 wheels wrapped in Falken tires.
Gene replaced the stock intercooler with a larger unit from COBB Tuning and added a cold-air intake to aid the turbocharged Mustang’s performance. To match the “Calfiornia” theme along with his brother Neil, Gene added a roof rack with Almond surfboards and color-matched carrier.
M2 Motoring 2021 Ford Mustang GT
The final pony car on the list is a 2021 Ford Mustang GT by M2 Motoring. Unlike the “streetcar” types previously mentioned, M2 Motoring’s Mustang GT has a “track-day” theme. M2’s Mustang started equipped with the factory Performance Package. A supercharger from the Ford Performance Parts catalog was bolted on for more power, which pushes the Mustang to 750 horsepower.
M2 Motoring also added stronger half-shafts to handle the additional power and torque. To increase downforce, a Performance Pack Level 2 front splitter was applied. The Mustang sits on a set of Ford Performance lowering springs and 19-inch GT350 wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3 tires. This car is effectively bringing several pages out of the Ford Performance catalog to SEMA 2021.
