2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Somehow Improves Upon Perfection
Once the nose of the 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 was pointed down the main straight of M1 Concourse, I mashed the throttle to the floor. All usual things happened — forceful acceleration, more noise, that floaty sensation behind my navel — but then something different did, too.
The rev needle kept climbing, climbing, climbing. Instinct told me that I should have upshifted long ago, but here I was screaming toward 8,000 RPM with the engine still feeling like it had plenty left to give. This was spooky. This was incredible.
