The Mustang Mach-E is vital to Ford’s future, and despite angering purists across the internet with the use of the nameplate, it still packs quite the punch. And to highlight its aftermarket appeal, Neil Tjin took a the new electric SUV under the knife. The brother to Gene Tjin, who designed the All Star Mustang EcoBoost HPP, came up with this Mustang Mach-E California Route 1 Edition you see before you, which takes a creative direction infused with a distinctive SoCal spirit.
Ford Mustang Mach-E California Route 1 Tjin Edition: The Details
Starting with custom bright orange paint with contrasting teal green accents that closely resemble the All Star’s paint job are found in the custom LED headlights from Lightwurkz, as well as on the vehicle badging. In addition, custom-built solar panels placed on top and down the back are designed to power a rather oversized custom teal green RayVolt USA electric bicycle, which has been mounted to a Thule e-bike rack. Do they actually work? Hard to say.
Underneath the Ford Mustang Mach-E California Route 1 Tjin Edition Concept is a fully custom airlift suspension from Hoppo’s Suspension with a Baer 6S six-piston front and rear big brake kit. The wheel wells appear completely filled out due to the ultra-wide Falken Ziex S/Tz05 tires mounted to custom-painted 22-inch Vossen ML-R1 wheels, which pinch and tuck behind the fender when fully lowered, and contrast with the overall orange appearance of the vehicle.
The inside of the vehicle has received a complete Tjin treatment with custom white leather seating from Recaro. The interior also receives the
toothpaste teal color accents with the lighting and seatbelts from Seatbelt Planet welcoming the stunning color. Additionally, Razor, a company with a focus on the gaming industry, has provided accessories for the vehicle. Inside the Frunk, the air suspension system is housed with a transparent acrylic tank, choreographed with LED lighting and cooling fans, so the uninitiated may believe the car comes with a built-in gaming computer.
Tjin Edition Garage is a regular participant of Ford’s SEMA show lineup, constantly producing head-turning custom builds for the Ford Performance booth. And we’re happy to find that this year was no different.
