2016 Shelby GT350 – A Big Orange Middle Finger to Mediocrity

2016 Shelby GT350 - A Big Orange Middle Finger to MediocrityIf you have been brainwashed into thinking that tiny turbochargers, paddle shifters, and retractable spoilers are the epitome of today’s emotional driving experience, then allow me to introduce you to the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 (it is bright orange with black rally stripes). You can pick this thing up from your local dealership (for around $57k) on Saturday afternoon and tear up the track the same night.

The GT350 comes “out of the box” with a DOHC 5.2-liter V8 engine and a six-speed manual gearbox (no paddle shifters on this one). It is good for 526hp and 429-lb.-ft. of torque and, with a curb weight of only 3,781-pounds, figures to rocket through the quarter-mile pretty quickly.
