Motor Trend Blurb


Recommended Posts

Did everyone see the Motor Trent article yet? If not I can try to scan it in. It is a pretty good read with travel across the country and a little comparison with the GTO amd SRT8 Charger. Motor Trend issue is now on News stands, and book shelves so anyone can grab one if you want.

For those who have not read the Angus Mackenzie Motor Trend article - go get the magazine. It may be the finest road test I have ever read. Only the MT review of the Pantera GT-1 was a better read, but did not come close to this article in what you want to know about the car, how it feels, handles, and performs in the real world, off of the track. The side bar comparison with the GTO and SRT8 Charger are nice to see as well.


The article has 2 different performance tests - with the same results. LOTS of road miles (coast to coast), and track time with experienced road and drag drivers.


Suspension - "The suspension is noticeably firmer than that of a regular GT... but it's toned and athletic rather than harsh and stiff".


"..arcing through fast sweepers with a precision that belies its old school live rear axel."


Power - "..significantly more mumbo than the prelaunch rumor had suggested."


"...delivers a smooth, linear surge of acceleration every time you press the gas..."


"Ford has hit the sweet spot with the new Shelby GT500. Meet the new benchmark for affordable American performance cars."


"The greatest Mustang ever? No question."
