Mustang Mach-E First Edition Comes with Cool Sculpture
If you’re one of the lucky ducks who scored a Ford Mustang Mach-E First Edition, you’re getting a little extra something-something. These ultra-limited ponies also come with an additional ultra-limited pony: a 3D printed wireframe sculpture of the iconic pony emblem.

The Mustang Mach-E statue comes in one of three colors: Rapid Red Metallic, Grabber Blue Metallic, or Carbonized Gray. Each sculpture’s color corresponds with the color of the vehicle ordered by the customer. How fancy!
This pint-sized pony trophy comes affixed to a black base with a message from the Ford Mustang Mach-E Launch Team: “Thank you for your support.” It also features the VIN of the owner’s vehicle.

You’re not alone if you think this little piece of art looks familiar. It’s modeled after the large-scale sculpture that you saw on-stage when the Mustang Mach-E made its 2019 world premiere in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, the pony emblem sculpture is not accompanied by a 3D-printed statue of presenter Idris Elba.
Ford says that this marks the first (but perhaps not the last) time that it has used 3D printing to give customers a gift. Harold Sears, technical leader for additive manufacturing, said that the inclusion of the special token of Ford’s appreciation “highlights a special connection with the customer.” He also notes that it shows another case-use for 3D printing technology, which Ford has begun using more frequently and creatively for vehicle components.
If you see this cool 3D-printed pony sculpture and think, hoo-boy, I need to grab a Mustang Mach-E First Edition, bad news. The Mustang Mach-E First Edition is long sold out with all examples claimed not long after its late 2019 review. But fear not! While you might not get a neato statute, you can still hook yourself up with a Mustang Mach-E, including the high-powered Mustang Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition, both of which opened up for preorders last month.
As for getting your hands on one of these Mustang Mach-E First Edition-exclusive sculptures? Welp, there’s always eBay.
