(CNN) – Ford is bringing back the Mustang Mach 1.

Originally introduced in 1969, it’s one of the automaker’s most iconic performance cars.

The new Mustang has a V8 engine that can produce an expected 480 horsepower.

With better oil cooling and large air intakes, the car is engineered for track driving.

Ford says the new limited-edition Mach 1 will be available at dealerships in spring 2021.
