The 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 features a powerful 5.2-liter flat-plane-crank V8 engine rated at 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 is capable of rocketing from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 3.9 seconds and it can do a quarter mile in just 12.2 seconds.
“This isn’t your father’s Mustang, even if your father’s Mustang was a 2000 SVT Cobra R,” said Kirk Bell of Motor Authority. “This is the most track capable Mustang of all time.”
In order to make the vehicle both lighter and quicker, the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 does not feature air conditioning, rear seats, an audio system, rearview camera, or exhaust resonators. In addition, the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 was the first mass-produced vehicle to feature carbon-fiber wheels, which removed approximately 50 pounds of weight from the pony car.
Motor Authority will announce the winner of the Best Car to Buy award via its website on January 4th.
