Great news, Mustang fans! The iconic muscle car that you know and love has been honored yet again by making it onto Car and Driver magazine’s 2016 10Best List. The list, which honors top new vehicles in our country for less than $80,000 is a veritable who’s who of cars that can burn up the road and track. We know that the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R and GT350 deserve all the honor they can get for first-rate performance and ultimate style.

This isn’t the first time the 2016 Ford Mustang has been honored even recently. We had a recent post about the GT350R being named as the 2016 Performance Car of the Year by Road and Track magazine. And looking at the stellar performance capability of this lean mean driving machine, it’s not surprise. Previous incarnations of the Ford Mustang have been honored on this list nine times in the past.
What makes the 2016 Shelby GT350 and GT350R so awesome? They are two of the hottest street-legal cars to also carry breathless track performance. The Ford Shelby GT350 also features a 5.2-liter V8 engine which is the most powerful naturally aspirated Ford production engine ever. With a whooping 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque from a high-revving flat-plane crankshaft, this engine (and, by extension, this smokin’ hot pony car) can handle anything on the road.
