Tuning company RTR has gotten their hands on Ford’s new EV Mach-E and created a 1,400 horsepower lightning-bolt race car. It is called the Mustang Mach-E 1400, and it is a one-of-one prototype with one mission in life, to prove that all-electric vehicles are fast and fresh. The 1400’s power comes from seven electric motors, three of which are mounted to the front differential. The remaining four motors are stacked like pancakes connected to the rear. A single driveshaft connects each differential to its collection of electric motors.
The 1400’s battery is a 56.8 kWh pack using nickel manganese cobalt pouch-cells designed for high-performance and high discharge. If you’re reading with a laptop on your lap, you know batteries get hot, so the Mach-E 1400’s is designed to cool-off during charging using a dielectric coolant. The RTR built the Mustang Mach-E 1400 to attack lap times on a track, or drift in a gymkhana video. The Mach-E 1400’s aero-body is not just for looks, capable of producing more than 2,300 pounds of down-force at 160 mph. Any NASCAR fans will be able to see the Mustang Mach-E debut later in the season.
