Take some deep breath, because Ford finally unveils the latest 2016 Ford Mustang. As automotive enthusiast, I can tell that the new Ford Mustang is just simply stunning. I really love how Ford prepare the entire body concept; make it look even sharper. First glance at the bonnet, front diffusers, and other body kit; this Mustang is just really a great sports car. The front ‘3 stripes’ LED lamp make it look futuristic and sexy. Looking at the back of this car is also amazing. Mustang still have its trademark rear stop light. It still based on the same concept, but surely, it is now look more cooler than before.
The Story of GT350R
Ford has prepared some other trim for this car, but I really like to discuss about the GT350R. This version is the highest trim above all, and of course, it have manlier look. The 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R comes with the Naturally Aspirated 5.2-Liter V8. Leaving all the turbo-nonsense behind, making its own distinctive noise, many noises. Squeeze down the pedal, and the engine will burst for around 500 horsepower, simply amazing. You can hear the muffler blowing all the happiness on your footsteps, making 0 to 60 mph in below 6 seconds flat.
The good news also comes from the adaptive MagneRide Suspension. The suspension can perform greatly on any kind of road situation. You can also drive this Mustang around the Track with no problem at all. This car get the revised spring rates (to a stiffer one), anti-roll bars and lower ride height to increase the entire dynamic aspect of this car. This Mustang also comes with the Six-Speed manual transmission to create some more fun.
Minus Features, Race-Track Oriented
The biggest drawbacks from owning this 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R is the empty cabin. Everything is just stripped away to create some pure racetrack feel. You will not getting any kind of air conditioning, stereo, rear seats, even the trunk upholstery. Actually, without that we still can running well without problem. However, I am not really interested to drive around without any spare tires. Yes, this Ford Mustang does not come with the Spare Tire or can of sealer. Ford also removing the resonator from its muffler, creating much more interesting muffler sound for our ear, thus saving more weight from this car, making you can perform better on the tracks.
