Mind-blowing Mustang Mach-E

If you're planning to buy a Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV when it comes available on this side of the big pond, this isn't it, writes Brian Byrne.

This is a one-off special Mach-E, from Ford teaming up with the US-based vehicles tuner RTR Vehicles, as a prototype for demonstrations at big motoring events.

The Mustang Mach-E 1400, as it is labelled, has seven electric motors that between them deliver more than 1,400hp.

Three of the motors are installed in the front, four at the rear. Using special differentials and complex software, the car can be switched between three drive modes — FWD, RWD and AWD. The system also allows set-up for different kinds of use, such as drifting or racing.

The production Mach-E comes with 255hp-459hp.
