Clive Sutton Creates Unique ‘Speed of Sound’ Mustang

The high-performance tuning division of performance and luxury car specialist Clive Sutton has unveiled a new special edition Mustang, the Mach 1 – 767 Edition.

The Sutton team has boosted the power by more than 300 horsepower to hit 767hp – the same value as the speed of sound (767mph) or Mach 1. The steep rise in power is achieved by combining a 3.0-litre supercharger with a dual-pass charge cooler and an H-pipe exhaust enhancement.

However, the performance upgrades don’t stop there. Each car is specified with Ford Performance anti-roll bars, spoiler and splitter, then Sutton upgrades the subframe and suspension components while adjusting the geometry of all four wheels to a Fast Road setup. Each car sits on Ford Performance birds nest wheels, shod with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres.

Clive Sutton, Founder and CEO: “Exclusivity, range-beating performance and absolute attention to detail are all qualities our customers look for – we’ve delivered each in spades with the Mach 1 – 767 Edition. The fact we managed to ‘hit the speed of sound’ figure with our horsepower upgrades makes this model even more special… it’s so much more of a Mach 1 than the stock version!”

The new Sutton Mustang builds upon Ford’s special edition 5.0L V8 Mach 1 Mustang, which benefits from an enhanced rear diffuser, specially-calibrated adaptive suspension and a 6-speed TREMEC manual transmission, or 10-speed auto. Enhancing exclusivity even further, the 767 Edition features bespoke interior mood lighting, a custom starter button, a custom arm rest and Sutton badging.

The new model made its debut last week at the UK’s Salon Privé concours – where the show car sold to a buyer at the event. With supply of Ford’s Mach 1 extremely limited, the new owner can be guaranteed of exclusivity. The Sutton team also sold a CS850GT Mustang at the event after the model took part in an octane-fuelled acceleration demonstration on the main drive of Blenheim Palace. The 767 edition is priced from £96,000 on the road, while the CS850GT starts at £115,000. Customers can express their interest at clivesutton.co.uk or by calling +44 (0)207 483 6500.

Additionally, since 2016, Sutton Bespoke has operated a specialist Mustang division. The company produced CS700 and CS800 versions and recently unveiled its CS850GT – the UK’s most powerful Mustang.
