Social.ShelbyPopMechanic Sports Car of Year cq5dam.web.480.480At Planet Ford in Humble, one thing we love is our Ford Mustang, so it comes as no surprise that it has garnered another honor.

That’s right, the Ford Shelby® GT350R Mustang, one of the most iconic nameplates of all time, has been named Popular Mechanics Sports Car of the Year.

Popular Mechanics states that the Shelby GT350R was selected from a host of contenders because the performance vehicle pushes the boundaries of what an American sports car can be.

The Ford Shelby GT350R’s unique, high-revving flat-plane crankshaft 5.2-liter V8 produces 526 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque – the most powerful naturally aspirated Ford production engine ever for the most track-capable, street-legal Mustang ever built.
