Ford Mustang Mach-E Has Already Been Pimped

Tuning / Comments

A lower ride height and some Volk wheels work wonders.

Say what you will about the Ford Mustang Mach-E; it's a pretty sharp-looking machine. Whether you think it lives up to the "Mustang" name or not, the pure-electric crossover was certainly styled in the iconic pony car's image, featuring swooping lines, a muscular stance, and a moderately aggressive, snarling front end.

And the Mach-E looks all the more sharp with a couple of basic mods, as it turns out. Over the weekend, Abimelec Design on Facebook reimagined the new Mustang-badged EV as a sporty, lowered whip with a revised front fascia, some gold-painted Volk wheels, and a light, minty metallic green exterior. We defy you to find fault with the finished product.

If there's one part of this design that seems untenable, it's the front fascia, which features a substantial lower grille opening. Because the Ford Mustang Mach-E is a battery-electric vehicle, it doesn't have a big, traditional radiator up front, so there's little need for so much pass-through. In fact, about the only thing it's sure to accomplish is raising the vehicle's aerodynamic drag coefficient, resulting in a loss of efficiency and a lower top speed.

But boy, does it look great - as does the upper faux-grille, which at least appears to be concealed behind a glossy transparent cover.

It will be interesting to see whether the Mustang Mach-E ever enjoys anything like the same level of owner modification as the traditional internal combustion-powered Mustang pony car. While there have been a handful of modified Tesla Model S examples over the years, most of the available modifications appear to be in the form of simple body kits and other aesthetic tweaks; the suspension and mechanicals generally tend to be left alone.

But wearing the "Mustang" name brings with it certain expectations about modability, and if the Mach-E is to fill the shoes of its forebear, it will need to take well to aftermarket upgrades. We look forward to seeing what the aftermarket is able to come up with.
