Am I the only one not feeling that high pitched ‘engine’ noise that the Mach E seemed to produce in the Bigfoot and now this video?
I mean I would prefer a Tie Fighter sound, but this is close enough! 😁😈

When we were at the LA Formula E a few years ago everyone remarked at how much the cars sounded like the Millenium Falcon.

Same paint scheme as the Cobra Jet 1400 by Ford Performance. I was expecting a different hood given the large fans we saw in the sasquatch video, maybe something like the GT500, but looks like two side hood vents.

This actually deflated my expectations a bit since it states it is just a one-of-a-kind prototype. I don't want a one-off Mach-E that'll never be available. I want a production halo Mach-E that will destroy any other crossover at the track or stoplight, regardless of powertrain. Halo cars are aspirational and the Mustang is nothing if not something to aspire to.

I would expect the battery and drive motor to be the same. If so, then it would show what the upper limit is that can be reached.

I don't mind the one off prototype nature and won't pass judgement until tomorrow but from the images tweeted so far this looks to be targeted squarely at the inner 5 year old and the sema brigade so I have absolutely zero interest :(. If it is however approach the same as the i-pace etrophy then I can see the benefit and it will have piqued my interest.

As kindly stated by ab13 it was a one make race series, since come to end due to covid-19 however to me it was more that it was a real race car, As said I will reserve judgment until this is shown but throwing some race inspired bits on does nothing for me I mean one of the images on the fordauthourity link was off under mount spoiler, a bit dated that :(.

While I don't expect a mach-e race series some race inspired development goes along way towards improving not just performance but energy management, after all the i-paces range boost came courtesy of lessons learned from the etrophy
