Ford discontinues Shelby GT350 and GT350R Mustang models, will make room for new Mach 1 model

Following a string of recent rumors, Ford revealed that it will indeed be axing the GT350 lineup after the 2020 model year, with their demise being necessary to make room for the recently unveiled Mach 1 model. However, the departure of the GT350 also means that it’s curtains for the 5.2 liter flat plane crank V8. Dubbed the “Voodoo” engine, this otherworldly engine made 526 horsepower and revved all the way up to 8,250 rpm. It makes a killer soundtrack, and we recently had the chance to sample it one final time in Michigan via a bright orange GT350R. The …

Updated with First Real-Life Photos – 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1

One of the only Mach 1’s currently in existence was present for the GT500 Track Tour and it was cool to see in the flesh.  Hot color and aero/grip focused makeover for what Ford’s calling the highest-performance 5-liter Mustang, ever. The double chin spoiler (!) and round light block elements are eye-catching at first glance, as is the spoiler right from the GT500. Super cool new spider-spoke alloys and even a lip on the front fenders to cover the wider rubber.  A new bumper shape up front changes the face slightly too. The in-person effect is subtle but undeniably very …

Ford Unveils 2021 Mustang Mach 1, Mixes New School Performance With Old School Looks [Video]

When we last saw the Mach 1 moniker applied to a Mustang, it was back in 2004 and 2005 when the moniker was used on a limited production run of Mustang models. While that iteration featured a shaker hood, not much else was done with performance. Ford engineers opted to remedy that for 2021 with the limited edition Mach 1. Like before, the 2021 Mach 1 is tapping into a very potent piece of nostalgia, with the car being adorned with graphics and stripes that are supposed to be a callback to the original 1969 model. This connection also extends …

Dodge Challenger Receiving ACR Model? New Report Suggests That It Would Be Benchmarked With Legendary Viper Sports Car

The Dodge Challenger has burned plenty of rubber, and in the process created a one of a kind legacy. It first appeared back in 2008, and it has soldiered on largely unchanged since then. While this means that the Challenger is truly ancient as far as automobiles are concerned, the muscle bound two door is also a modern success story of versatility, with the LY platform being perhaps one of the most versatile and adaptable platforms that we have ever seen in a FCA product. But while models like the SRT Hellcat, Demon (pictured,) and even the current Hellcat Redeye …

Superformance Goes Double Or Nothing With All New MKIII-R, Modern Aerodynamics And Performance Muscle Unleashes The Beast Incarnate

Superformance has managed to establish a very solid reputation for producing replicas that faithfully emulate a wide range of 1960’s cars including the Shelby Cobra. The Shelby Cobra replicas in particular have morphed into a core piece of the broader business, with the firm even receiving a licensing deal from Shelby themselves (a rarity for many replica makers.) But for this particular project, Superformance pitched historical accuracy, and instead embraced their dark side to unleash a very potent beast for the track.   Dubbed the MKIII-R the basic design shares much of its core DNA with the old-school Shelby Cobra, …

Ford Mustang R-Spec Brings 700 Horsepower To Australia, Teases U.S. Customers In The Process

With all the attention that the 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang is getting, it can be easy to forget that sometimes the international market can sometimes produce an equally compelling piece of candy that is just out of reach of U.S. customers. In this instance, Ford’s Australia division has just unveiled an all new Mustang variant that is sure to draw heads, and comes with enough horsepower to lay down some rubber on Australian backroads. Dubbed the R-Spec, the idea of a Mustang being on the same performance spectrum as the GT500 may make alarm bells ring at first. But once …

The Dodge Charger is truly a jack of all trades. From being a competent family hauler, to a supercharged track slaying beast in Hellcat guise, the Charger offers something for everyone.
