Mustang Mach 1 Prototype
The Ford Mustang Bullitt is set to be sunsetted after the ’20 model year, and its replacement, the Mustang Mach 1, is supposedly set to arrive for 2021.
This prototype appears to be wearing the dark highland green exterior paint that is a signature of the current Bullitt. Given the presence of the camouflage, it would appear that the vehicle will wear some unique front and rear fasciae. The front end, in particular, looks to be slightly different from what’s currently available on the Mustang line. Meanwhile, the bright multi-spoke wheels appear more in line with what we’d see on the Mustang Pony package.
It will also allegedly have some performance enhancements over the traditional Mustang GT on which it will be based.
’20 Charger SRT Hellcat
This is the ’20 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody (caught for the first time), and it’s packing 797 hp.
The latest iteration of the Charger receives wider body panels similar to those found on the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody, with more pronounced fenders. The Charger SRT Hellcat also gets a new hood and a blackout panel on top. Other changes are expected to be more moderate, but expect it to closely follow changes made to other Widebody models, which included revised steering, brakes and tire fittings.
The Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody should make its public debut any day now, with an on-sale date to follow closely.
’21 BMW 4-Series
Spies in Munich have been lucky to snap new, revealing shots of the ’21 BMW 4-Series, including the controversial front end. The model features a massive twin-kidney grille, which echoes the one used on the Concept 4.
However, there are some subtle differences, as the grille on this car features a black or body-color central divider and a different mesh pattern, which in these pictures makes it look like a giant version of Kia’s so-called Tiger grille.
At launch, a 430i with a turbocharged 2.L four-cylinder developing 255 hp and 300 lb.-ft. is expected. It should be joined by an M440i featuring a turbocharged 3.0L six-cylinder with 382 hp and 370 lb.-ft. of torque.
