2016 GT350 Named to Automobile’s “2016 All-Stars”

The accolades for the 2015-2016 Shelby GT350 Mustang have been plentiful and enthusiastic and it just added another distinction from the automotive press.

Automobile Magazine has named the latest Ford Performance Shelby GT350 (and GT350R) to its list of “All Stars: The Magnificent 7.”

From a field of this year’s “most compelling new cars,” Automobile has chosen a diverse list that most closely “matches [its] ethos” from the fun and affordable Mazda MX-5 Miata to the all-out powerhouse Ferrari 488 GTB.

“You might think the presence of a Ferrari would overshadow everything else in the field. It didn’t. Perhaps even more electrifying, a beast on the track and a Saturn V rocket out on the open road, the new Ford Shelby GT350 had us fighting for seat time. The mountain walls lining the serpentine asphalt of Highway 168 wriggling down into Big Pine, California, are probably still echoing with the shock waves of its 526-horse V-8 screaming at 8,500 rpm” said Automobile.

Having tested both the base GT350 and the GT350R, Automobile made no exceptions for either and were equally impressed by both, noting that the Shelbys “define the word ‘visceral.'”
