Just to give you some idea of how great we Americans have had it, the Ford Mustang has been produced and sold here continuously for the past 50 years. Our friends across the pond in the United Kingdom? Not so fortunate; the world’s premiere pony car is only just heading to that market.
We figure that the British masses must be appropriately stoked at the prospect of seeing the latest sixth-generation Mustang on the road, and that goes double for the stratospherically-capable Shelby GT350R.
So how do native Londoners react to seeing a 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R parked on the street? That’s the subject of the video below, and to be frank, the car is an instant celebrity; passers-by snap photos on their cell phones, pose eagerly next to the car, and stop dead in their tracks to inspect the Shelby GT350R’s every curve and angle.
And then the car fires up.
If you’ve ever wanted to see ordinary London citizens recoiling and jumping out of their skins at the sound of a mighty, 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V8, this is your lucky day; the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R, and the torrential scream of its exhaust, do not fail to disappoint.
