Only small visual updates were performed to the Mustang that included a new front end that some on the Roadshow staff weren't too fond of.

To properly test out our Mustang GT, we took it to GingerMan Raceway in South Haven, Michigan for a day of hot laps.

We also tested the Mustang's standard line lock feature, which comes in handy to warm the rear tires for drag strip runs.

Line lock worked as advertised to put heat in the back tires.

During our two-month stint, we also flogged the Mustang GT around an autocross and did some drifting.

Without question the Mustang GT remains one of the best performance values on the market today, but we recommend getting it with the standard six-speed manual transmission.
