Today’s car of the day is this 2019 Shelby GT350 that was at the 2018 Daytona Turkey Rod Run. This is from the sixth generation of the Mustang, which has been in production since July of 2014 (the first model year was 2015). The engine is a 5.2 liter V8 that produces 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed manual. This car can do 0-60 mph in about 4 seconds and tops out at about 180 mph.

Car of the Day 10/26/18

Today’s car of the day is this ’84 Mustang Anniversary Edition GT350 that I saw in town yesterday. This is from the third generation of the Mustang, which was made between 1978 and 1993 (model years between 1979 and 1993). This version of the GT350 was only made for 1984 to commemorate the Mustang’s 20th anniversary, and a total of 5,260 were built. The engine of this one is a 2.3 liter turbocharged straight-4 that produces 145 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, and 350 ’84 GT350s had this engine. The transmission is a 5-speed manual. This car does 0-60 mph in 8.6 seconds and has a top speed of 121 mph.

Today’s car of the day is this 2018 Shelby GT350 that was at the 2018 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Palm Beach. The engine is a 5.2 liter V8 that produces 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed manual. This car can do 0-60 mph in about 4 seconds and tops out at about 180 mph, so it’s not as fast or as powerful as the 2013/2014 Shelby GT500. The starting price of the new Shelby GT350 is $55,940.
