Taking the place of Ford’s GT350, we were introduced to the new Mach 1 Mustang. The new sixth generation Mach 1 features a very powerful 5.0L Coyote V8 with upgraded suspension and lots of performance upgrades. Along with the added performance and appearance options, Ford changed the design of the front end a bit to better distinguish this model from the GT350 lineage.
Anderson Composites is known for carbon fiber aero components and this model proves that point. However, we have taken a further step with the design and manufacture of a completely new double-sided carbon fiber hood (SKU # AC-HD21FDMUM1-SK-DS). This new hood features a fully functional center scoop that directs incoming air to the air box located in the engine compartment. The design took inspiration from the first generation Mach 1 with its iconic shaker hood scoop which would mount directly to the top of the engine and sit inside a cut-out hood, allowing it to “shake” when running. “We wanted to update the overall design, make it functional and bring some excitement back to the Mach 1 name”, states Zach Bohn, brand manager. The hood is made of high quality 3k, 2×2 carbon fiber twill fabric and marine grade resin with UV inhibitor and mounts to the factory locations for optimal fitment.
Complementing the hood, Anderson has made a carbon fiber front spoiler (SKU # AC-FL21FDMUM1-OE) and front splitter (SKU # AC-FL21FDMUM1-HP) which is an option upgrade for Mach 1 owners that may not have the handling package. New carbon fiber air ducts (SKU # AC-ADB21FDMUM1), upper grille insert (SKU # AC-UG21FDMUM1) and front fender extensions (SKU # AC-FE21FDMUM1) were also manufactured to make the Mach 1 front end stand out among the crowd. Anderson’s current product offerings for Mustang carbon fiber rocker panels and swing rear spoiler with Gurney flap are compatible with the Mach 1 with handling package and make a seamless look for this high performance vehicle.
