Ford Mustang GT Is Blue Oval’s Only Success Story

By  | 

The annual Lightning Lap Challenge from Car&Driver has always offered a great look at the performance of certain cars and this year’s happening has confirmed that the vehicles from Ford are no longer good and track like they were a couple of years ago.

The 2018 Lightning Lap Challenge saw the exotic Ford GT being the best performing vehicle from the company. But on the downside of things, the car’s timing of 2:45.5 has made it the slowest in its category. The worst bit about the GT is that the track-glorified supercar isn’t able to do better than GM’s Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.

The real and only success from Ford is with the Mustang GT that is packed with Performance Package Level 2. This particular vehicle is priced under $64,000 and it completed Lightning Lap with a timing of 2:53.8.

This makes the Mustang GT the seventh fastest vehicle to race at this year’s happening, slotted between the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 and the 2018 BMW M5. You can check out the Mustang GT in action below.
