Well, it was going to happen eventually. The Internet’s wildly talented digital artists will render most cars with a semblance of production possibility (and plenty without, too), but the Mustang Mach-E feels like a car more susceptible to their attention than any.
Yep, Ford’s electric SUV certainly caused a stir last year. Which is to be expected when you morph a car known for its V8 muscle and dislike for tire longevity into a peacekeeping EV.
Those electronic crayon wielders have had a go at appeasing the people who might have been enraged by the new plug-in ’Stang. It’s X-Tomi Design’s go at a Shelby GT500 version of the Mach-E and...well, we don’t know what to think.
As a design, it’s surprisingly cohesive, and we reckon the artist has done a sterling job of integrating the styling cues of a 750hp sports car into a sensible electric car. But naturally, all those intakes seem silly with no engine up front, and we do ponder the sense of Ford evolving the Mach-E into something like this.
So, over to you. Should Ford take inspiration from X-Tomi? Or is the Mach-E best kept as an altruistic sideline while the regular ’Stang stays naughty?
