The 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 wasn’t designed to kick ass at the drag strip, but that doesn’t mean I’m not sitting in the right-hand lane of the closest 1320 waiting for the staging lights to clear. You see, yesterday’s lightning storm wiped out the lapping sessions I was scheduled to attend that evening, which left me scrambling to find a track on which to sample Ford’s all-new apex pony car.

Why am I so eager to set the GT350 loose from the confines of the well-patrolled, heavily-trafficked roads that surround the island of Montreal? It’s simple, really: when Ford designed the latest iteration in its long line of high performance, Shelby-badged Mustangs (and the first to be released without the involvement of original creator, the late Carroll Shelby), it set out to build a track car for the street. Much more like the Boss 302 that preceded it, rather than the hyper-muscled Shelby GT500 that shares its name, the Shelby GT350 happens to benefit from the best platform to ever underpin the coupe as its starting point.
