Luxetips Automobiles! Racing the new Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 at Atlanta Motorsports Park
Life is what you make it. Make it great!
Ford Motor Company’s, Ford Performance division, introduced the new Ford GT350 in a big way via the 2016 Shelby GT350 Consumer Track Event Tour. This event came to Atlanta and featured in-depth educational sessions, technological demonstrations, and of course fast and powerful driving!
When we arrived at Atlanta Motorsports Park we were greeted with breakfast and much needed water. It was a hot day!
We then had the pleasure of listening to an amazing presentation by the President of Ford Performance’s division who gave us in-depth information on the history of the Shelby GT350. Carroll Shelby, car designer and racer, designed the Mustang Shelby GT350 in 1965. Since it’s inception, the Shelby Mustang GT350 has become a premier racing and consumer performance vehicle. The car has been off the market for the past 50 years, but now it is back bigger and better!
The vehicle’s features are:
500 Horsepower, wowza!
400 lb-ft of torque
Six Speed Manual.
After our presentation, we had safety training by professional experienced drivers. They instructed us on how to drive the vehicle at top speed, how to take corners on the track and of course to remain safe. More importantly, we were instructed to always listen to our instructors, who would ride with us while on the track. After our safety training, I was so read to go!
Driving the Shelby Mustang GT350 on the Atlanta Motorsports Park was an experience to remember! First the sound of the engine is simply sick!!…but in a good way. It just growls and growls and can be heard miles away. Love it! After a couple of laps around at our top speed of 100 miles per hour, I relaxed and started taking the sharp turns on the track at top speed. The great thing about the GT350 is that it take sharp turns like a champ! The car hugs the curves and there is no need to worry about toppling over. It was simply the most exhilarating experience I have ever had.
The new Shelby Mustang GT350 may be the best street legal racing car ever produced. If you love racing and power, be sure to visit a Ford dealership to take a test drive.
It retails at $55,595.00
