What can you say about a convertible Ford Mustang GT? Score! We all know it’s one of the best American muscle cars in the world — ever. With its powerful engine the 5.0L GT puts out 435 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque with a 5.0-liter TI-V8 engine, the Mustang — did I say it was a red convertible — and is the envy of every man and sports car lover.
Now in its fifth generation, this rear wheel drive beauty maximizes its power from every compression point with large intake and exhaust valves, cylinder heads that feature high-flow ports and intake and exhaust camshafts that yield an impressive lift. What that means is that the roar of the engine is pure bliss.
For Mustang enthusiasts, Ford paid homage to the 1967-68 car and starting with the 2016, the Mustang GT will feature LED turn signal repeaters recessed under the lip of the hood vents. To say it is cool is simply an understatement.
But what one might not know is that it’s a fun car to simply drive around town. Yes, we didn’t need to race up 400 or rev the engine just for the pleasure of feeling the power. We are not testosterone driven. This car just made us happy just driving around town doing errands, especially with the top down.
