Ford Performance has a super-cool, state-of-the-art racing simulator, and it’s not afraid to use it on its street cars as well. That’s how the freshly-released Mustang Mach-E became the first road-going Ford that had its parameters optimized using the 3D sim located in Concord, North Carolina.
Once the Ford GT was out of the pipeline and the Blue Oval could finally think about planning a return at Le Mans, the need for a racing program spruced to attention. To sustain it, Ford built the 33,000-square-foot Technical Support Center which helped other similar efforts along the way. But until now, it was never used in the development of a mass-produced street-legal car. The Mach-E changed that.
