Ford Performance sent Vaughn Gittin Jr. on a sightseeing trip to the Faroe Islands, arguably one of the most beautiful places on Earth, to have fun with the RTR Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400, dressed up in a new livery (which was also on display during the Woodward Dream Cruise). Through some rather incredible footage, we get to see him travel through the islands drifting and racing his way through tunnels, around roundabouts, and up switchbacks in what he says is one of the most insane videos he has been a part of. And it’s easy to see why.
The journey begins on a ferry that transports the mighty Mustang Mach-E 1400 electric SUV to the islands. The 12-plus minute video then proceeds to create a bit of build-up, giving the viewer anticipation for the ramp to lower so the electric racecar can take off and start speeding away.
However, that doesn’t happen as the car, along with Vaughn Gittin Jr., gets greeted by a local. The retired Formula D champion then slowly makes his way through the town in the Mach-E 1400, turning a few heads along the way before the fun begins and the drifting capability of this 1,400 horsepower electric roller coaster.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 In Action
Throughout the video, there is quite a bit of drone footage taken incredibly close to cliffs as it chases down the Mach-E 1400 through the islands, showcasing the vehicle’s capabilities. The car also seems to have some sort of AI integrated into the system, at least for the sake of the video, giving the car its own personality, which is quite adorable. The two can be seen playing soccer until the RTR Mach-E 1400 gets hit by the ball and proceeds to scream.
By the end of the video, we see that the car battery has only gone down to 68% despite all the drifting and hard acceleration. Still, to be safe, Vaughn Gittin Jr. plugs the car into a wind turbine, showcasing the vehicle’s fully electric functionality.
The Mustang Mach-E 1400 took 10,000 hours to develop and has seven individual motors propelling it forward along with a 56.8 kWh battery. The vehicle has three motors in the front axle and four in the rear. Utilizing a two-stage cooling system which it undoubtedly needs after the heat it likely produced during the making of this film.
