What Is the Mustang Mach 3 Concept Car?Last Updated August 4, 2019
While the Ford Mustang has certainly changed and evolved over the years, there are a few Mustang models that have never made it to the regular production stage. The 1992 Mustang Mach 3 joined the likes of the 1965 four-door, 1966 station wagon, 1970 Milano and 1990 Rambo as Mustang versions that, for one reason or another, did not resonate with car buyers or Mustang aficionados.
Forerunner of the Fourth-Generation Mustang
In the early 1990s, the Mustang product development team was attempting to come up with a newly designed Mustang to mark the beginning of the Mustang’s fourth generation in 1994. The result was the 1992 Mach 3 concept car, which was noted for its low-cut windshield and two-seat interior. This vehicle also has a supercharged 4.6L V-8 engine with a power capacity of 450 hp and a top speed of 180 mph.
Many Mach 3 Features Were Included in the 1994 Mustang
While the low windshield and two seats have yet to be incorporated into a regular-production Mustang to this day, the Mach 3 was not a total loss. A number of Mach 3 design features were eventually included in the 1994 Mustang, such as the tri-bar headlamps, side scoops and classic grille pony badge. And one Mach 3 model sold for a whopping $491,500 at Christie’s Auction at 2002!
