Ford Mustang Mach-E Gets Shelby Treatment For SEMA

Ford isn’t holding back for the 2021 SEMA Show. We’ve already seen various Bronco builds, but the Blue Oval brand will also feature a range of F-Series trucks, smaller Ranger and Maverick concepts, a pair of custom Mustang projects, and of particular interest in this article, a trio of Mustang Mach-E electric crossovers. And yes, one of them is a Shelby.

Before we jump into the hornet’s nest of an electric Shelby Mustang crossover, here’s a quick overview of the Mach-E fleet at SEMA. In addition to the Shelby concept, there’s a tweaked GT model seeking top speed glory for a good cause. There’s also an eyeball-searing California Route One that’s slammed for the SoCal scene. Let’s take a closer look at them all.

That’s quite a name for a car, but this Mach-E GT exists for two very special reasons. The first is speed, as it will attempt a 200-mph top speed run during the 2022 Bonneville Speed Week. There’s no mention of powertrain changes to make that happen, but the car does get a carbon-fiber front splitter and a large wing. Such items generally slow a car in a speed run, but upgraded wheels, suspension, and brakes will help keep it under control. Once the event is over, the car will be auctioned and the proceeds will go to the Austin Hatcher Foundation – the second special reason for its existence.
