We take the famously powerful muscle car for a thrilling spin
Going from 0-100km/h in under four seconds is no mean feat of engineering. It’s also a white knuckle, heart-in-mouth experience. Which is a pretty accurate description of how it feels to climb behind the wheel of the 5-litre V8 2018 Ford Mustang GT (video below).
This is a car that has been redesigned with muscular intent. Its angular lines, low-profile grill and profile make it one of Ford’s most belligerent muscle cars to date.
The four exhaust modes — quiet, normal, sports and track — offer you four different ways of making an audible scene at the traffic lights and as first you sit with the car growling, and then as you pull away from the rest, in all your born-to-be-wild glory.
This is the first vehicle after the Ford GT supercar to have the 12-inch all-digital LCD screen in the dashboard, which makes the drag mode an awful lot of fun to watch as you rev the power-crazy 5 litre engine up, up and away
Plus, its vociferous 5-litre V8 engine that announces your every clip of acceleration and tightly–taken apex. It’s a speed-thirsty machine. One that not-so-gently encourages you to go faster, harder, faster.
