Is the 2016 Shelby GT350 Mustang the perfect driver’s car?
If you were wondering what it’s like to get behind of the wheel of the all-new Shelby GT350, wonder no further because our friends over at Motor Trend have just gotten their hands on one of these highly sought after ponies. The GT350 is a new kind of Mustang and it’s aimed at dominating in all forms of automotive performance. The steed is track ready from the factory and the V8 under the hood is a real testament to that as it cranks out 526hp and revs all the way up to 8,250 rpm.
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Tire Rack, Jason Cammisa explains what makes this flat-plane crankshaft different from a regular V-8 using a set of drums. Then, measures the engine’s output on a DynoJet dynamometer. Of course you can’t test a race car without a real race car driver so our resident racer, Randy Pobst got behind the wheel of the GT350 and put the hammer down around Chuckwalla Valley Raceway.
Check out the video and see if the new American muscle car is actually a better driver’s car than most sports cars!
