2018 Ford Mustang GT Beating Shelby GT350 Sends The Wrong Message!

By  | 

Any Mustang fan will agree that the newly launched 2018 GT model brought in a more refined performance to the car but to call the vehicle as an upgrade over the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 is not right at all.

A video of this went viral earlier today and it shows an early adopter of the 2018 Ford Mustang GT testing out the acceleration of his car. The owner of the Mustang also did a complete review of the vehicle and he summed it all up by emphasising on the faster 0-60mph times on his GT over a Shelby GT350.

Well, in the latter’s defence, Ford never wanted the Mustang Shelby GT350 to be a straight line hero. The advantage is certainly with the Mustang GT on the straight line as it has the new 10-speed shifter. The transmission is certainly faster than the standard 6-speed on the GT350 hence granting the ability to accelerate at a quicker pace.

The gears on the GT350, on the other hand, are fine-tuned for track use and this is evident with the fact that the first gear ends at 55mph. To sum it all up, the review below is alright but you should not take it that the Shelby GT350 is an inferior car.
