We may no longer have the Boss 302, but Ford saw our disappointment and delivered a Shelby GT350 with a flat-plane V-8 and a 8,200 RPM redline. We're impressed.
While the company has been in some naming/ownership disputes in the last few years, that hasn’t stopped Saleen—the man and the company—from setting its sights on the next-generation, all new 2015 Ford Mustang GT. The car will be called the S302 and should break cover sometime leading up to this year’s SEMA show. Three trims will be available—White, Yellow and Black Label—in both coupe and convertible forms.
It is a world many of us are in denial of living. We knew the time was coming, but we’d hoped that some sort of salvation would have been procured by now. Instead, things have only began to appear more drastic … more dismayed. We heard the warning cries. The warnings that our paradise could not last—it was unsustainable and we were crazy for even thinking that it would continue forever uninterrupted. We turn our heads away, shaking them in disbelief.
One thing Team Revvolution has noticed from our most recent high-speed airstrip events (e.g., Shift-S3ctor’s Airstrip Attacks and the Texas Mile) is that many participants compete with Ford GTs. What is it about the coveted supercar that has made it such a popular choice at these events? Perhaps it’s an automobile that is near perfect from the factory, yet has so much potential for modifications. Even famed Texas tuner Hennessey Performance set a new Texas Mile Record (in a GT) last year and has since broken that record twice (257.7 mph and 263.3 mph in 2012, 267.7 mph in 2013). This is a look at the heritage and modified development of the Ford GT.
