Daytona Coupe Proves Shelby’s Genius
After Shelby beat the ever living heck out of Ferrari at Le Mans, the gas swilling Texan went about at creating a faster version of the car with a brand new body.
For the last few months, the F-Series pickup wasn’t on the top of the heap in terms of pickup sales. It’s been a trend of Ford since the company launched the new F-150 with the aluminum body.
An aluminum body is a great way to cut vehicle weight, but it’s not the only way. Wheels carry quite a bit of pounds in them. That’s why Ford went with carbon fiber for the wheels on its upcoming Shelby GT350R Mustang.
Test drives are great and all, but salespeople aren’t terribly enthusiastic about the idea of potential customers taking inventory out on a race course to see how it performs. That’s true here and across the pond in the UK, where the new Mustang is now available.
Ford is good at making Mustangs that are so powerful, they feel as if they’re about to take flight when you put your right foot down. We’re sure whoever ends up owning the Apollo Edition Mustang will get that exact same sensation.
