Ford Shelby GT350 is an Automobile Magazine All-Star

The Ford Shelby GT350 and GT350R Mustang were chosen as an Automobile Magazine All-Star winner for 2016.

2015 Ford Mustang GT350 Automobile Magazine All-StarThe editors selected “25 of the 2016 model year’s most intriguing new models” and took each of them out on the track and road for a week, eventually narrowing them down to their seven favorites based on style, class, importance, and desirability.

It’s no surprise, then, that one of these was the Ford Shelby GT350 and its GT350R sibling. Needless to say, the editors were impressed by its roaring 526-horsepower V8 engine; though what’s perhaps most impressive is that the car deserved a spot among the likes of the Ferrari 458 GTB and Porsche Cayman GT4.

“The GT350R has a very ‘mean American’ feel but balances that with a very good chassis,” said Automobile’s Marc Noordeloos, while his co-editor Lerner praised the flat-plane V8 for being “a magnificent piece that makes all the right noises.”
