The MME is showed in a glass cage. You are not able to see the interior, sit in it nor touch it
Sounds like what they did in December in California. They displayed this prototype around a handful of dealerships back then...

Good spottin' there!

Eigenlijk knap waardeloos zo'n aquarium er omheen....kun je er niet eens naast gaan staan, laat staan er in gaan ziten...
En ondertussen heb je daar dan ruim Eur 57k voor neergelegd...

Schijnt voornamelijk te zijn vanwege coronavirus. Eigenlijk moeten ze dan elke keer als er iemand in heeft gezeten de auto schoonmaken....
Alsof ze dat bij een normale Ford dealer wel doen...

Translated: "Actually pretty worthless such an aquarium around it .... you can not even stand next to it, let alone sit in it ...
And in the meantime you have deposited more than 57k for that ..."


Agreed. I think they did it that way to quickly get one display vehicle to a lot of different places to display it. Pretty sure they just kept it in the trailer and towed it from place to place for a few hours each day.

We probably get better views of it on the internet than one would get standing next to that trailer.

Agreed. When I saw one at the Washington Auto Show it was up on a stage and we weren’t allowed to go up there. However, theyWould open the doors each hour and you could still see it much better than in that aquarium.

From the early version of the winglet handles in picture 1 it's likely this was one of the original hand-built prototypes that was already in Europe for car shows pre-COVID-19. I think once they started the Cuautitlan runs they changed to the new trough-style handle.

I added it to the list of Mach Es seen in the Wild:

Just a question, you only registered Rapid Red, not Lucid Red. Are these all in the old color red and is the 2021 color red different?

I already found the answer: Rapid Red = Lucid Red = Hot Red/Red Carpet = D4. So the European market uses Lucid Red where the NA markets use Rapid Red

Same color, different name. Ford uses different names for some of the colors in Europe than they do in the US.
US Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat = EU Lucid Red
US Grabber Blue = EU Kona Blue
US Shadow Black = GB Absolute Black
US Carbonized Gray = GB Carbonized Grey

It even varies a bit among countries.

Ordered a Lucid Red(Rapid Red) as well.
It's great to see it in "real life"although it still sux that you can't see the car inside or take a closer look.

Yep, well at least I knew in advance before I drove down there, and it is definitely better than looking at images in your browser.

I also took a look and was dissapointed to saw it has a purple tint in it, like you see on the Renault Captur and other people movers. Not really a Mustang color to my taste, I drove a Race Red V8 convertible for a while and that was much more a sporty Mustang color. Since every picture online, even on the Ford website, shows this color differently, it's surely a color to check out first if you're able to. All about tast of course
