Ford’s pony car on steroids, the Shelby GT350, is more than just a quarter-mile monster. Yes, the 5.2-liter V-8 can hustle it down the straight at a brain-melting pace. It’s not the 526 hp, the 429 lb-ft of torque, or the 4.3-second zero-to-60-mph run that has us drooling—it’s that Ford has finally built a muscle car that can hold its own through corners. True speed freaks can opt for the GT350R, which cuts 0.4 second off the zero-to-60 time. Both the GT350 and GT350R are 2017 10Best winners.
- The main ingredient is the engine. And, wow! What an engine. It’s a 5.2-liter V8 that spins to a coarsely shrieking 8,250 revolutions per minute.
- It makes an amazing noise that sends a chill fingering its way up from the base of your spine as the engine winds itself up.
- Considering its overall practicality, which includes usable back seats and a fairly capacious trunk, even an ordinary Mustang offers a really good driving experience.
“The Ford Mustang and I are roughly the same age. This gives me hope because I recently spent some time with what very well may be the best Mustang ever made.”
