A certain future classic goes to auction.
The Ford Mustang is, without a doubt, one of the most important cars to come out of the United States, and for decades on end it has proved itself as one of the greatest domestic automotive achievements and secured a place as one of the automotive world’s greatest legends. The iconic Ford Mustang GT is entering its seventh generation, and the new car has already proven itself to be a great improvement on the iconic performance staple, with the most powerful engine a Mustang GT has had yet, a 486-horsepower, 418 lb/ft of torque iteration of the 5.0-liter Coyote V8. The redesigned look adds even more homage to the 60s Mustang that cemented the legacy of the Mustang name, and with the option of a 6-speed manual or 10-speed automatic, it’s a tradition-honoring driver’s car.
