Meet the antidote to the modern supercar arms-race where anything under 600hp makes you irrelevant, and where every 10ths of milliseconds in shift times with flappy paddles is "better".
Yesterday we had the pleasure of taking our Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 R that is available for Lease, Finance, or Outright Purchase on a short drive for a photoshoot; even at the measly pace of 60kmh we couldn't stop grinning 😁 The steering feel communicates the road's surface through to your fingertips, the Recaro seats hold you in firmly yet comfortably, the suspension although stiff is not jarring, the Tremec 6-speed manual transmission offers the most tactile and purposeful throws you’ll ever experience, and then there's the relationship between your right foot and engine - even dipping your toe on the throttle gives you the sense its ready to belch out a furious exhaust note from its 526hp 5.2L naturally-aspirated V8 featuring a flat-plane crankshaft that pushes the engine redline to a scarcely believable 8,250RPM! It's a racecar engine bolted into a turn-key car and offered with a warranty!
The kicker was feeling all of this raw potential while barely ticking over 3,000rpm. There's not many powerful cars that are enjoyable at slow speeds anymore, this GT350 R is the needle in the haystack that is as it commands respect at any pace. It's party-piece at slow speeds is rev-matched downshifts that flare up the RPM by 1,000 for a split second and give any nearby pedestrians a heart attack [sorry about that 😇] as the V8 exhaust shatters the air waves, and make you as the driver feel like you're front row at your favourite band's concert 🎶
