2015 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang

One of the baddest pony cars is back in action and definitely worthy of the Shelby nameplate. The new 2015 Shelby GT350 Mustang is built-on the next-generation platform and is powered by a high-revving 5.2L V8 that puts down 500 hp making it the most powerful, naturally aspirated engine that Ford currently has in production.

Track-tuned, the new GT350 is ready for anything with 400 lb-ft of torque, a six-speed transmission, and a dynamic suspension that uses "MagneRide" dampers that actively reads the road and optimizes handling and responsiveness. Aluminum throughout the car further enhances the sporting qualities of the car and wider fenders and a wider track gives the GT350 the that imposing, musclecar presence you can only get from a Mustang.

Available in their top-of-the-line R model which packs a 550 hp V8, the car can hit the limited 186 mph top speed like the RWD model, but can now reach a sub 4 second 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds. Look for the AWD F-Type R in showrooms next year.

Bentley Continental GT3-R

Coming off their huge win in Silverstone, Bentley announces a street-legal version of their GT3 racer with the fastest accelerating Bentley ever produced, the GT3-R.

The Continental might be a big GT, but the engineers have retuned the car's 4.0L V8 and have accomplished a 3.6 second 0-60 time, which is one hell of an engineering feat for such a large coupe. The GT3-R can produce 572 hp and can reach a top speed of 170 mph. Also contributing to the car's performance is a loss in overall weight as the car is 100 kg lighter than their stock GT V8S. All the cars will be painted in a gloss white finish with green accents and will be limited to 300 examples worldwide.
