British magazine “Evo” published some rather interesting report that claims the Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R lapped the Nürburgring in 7:32.19, which is more than five seconds faster than the Chevrolet Z/28’s 7:37.47 lap time, making the Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R the fastest Muscle car on the infamous Norsdchlief Nürburgring.
Hell, to add inslut to injury.. The 7:32.19 lap time is faster than an earlier 05′ Pagani Zonda F (7:33.00), a 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS (7:33.00), a 2006 Koenigsegg CCX (7:34.00), a 2010 Audi R8 GT (7:34.00), and is on par with the 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo S (7:32.00).
By now, you are saying where do I sign up for the new Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R? And to that, we say hold your horses until this info-leak is official.
Just not too long ago the Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R was unveiled at last year’s LA auto show, and laid off the latest Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 flat down, TKO style. If this lap time is true, (and since Ford uses carbon fiber wheels for a $100,000 car) we believe it is. It could spell disaster for the Chevy sports coupe that is already stripped down to the bone and while some people prefer Camaros over Mustangs – The 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R looks much better.
Stay tuned fellow gear heads for more.
