Used Car of the Day: 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350
Today we give you a track-ready pony car -- this 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350.
There are 91,500 miles on this car and while Ford built the GT350 as a track-attack car, this particular one has not been tracked.
It appears the car has been well maintained and there have been no major accidents, just a minor parking-lot bang up.
The car has a full wrap and a Shelby GT350R spoiler.
According to the seller, the high mileage is because the car is a daily driver, but again it appears to be well maintained and never tracked.
The asking price is $40,000. Click here to check it out.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

- Arthur Dailey An electric urban runabout, that charges very quickly, fits 2 adults and perhaps 2 child seats (max) and has a fold down rear seat with a hatch for shopping, and is priced in the mid $20k range, could be a big seller in urban environments, as a 2nd or 3rd vehicle and with car sharing groups in urban centres.Range would not have to be 'great' due to its projected use. in North America it would probably be more readily accepted if given a Dodge or even a Plymouth name, rather than marketed as a Fiat.
- Clive Proportional speeding fines make more sense than hard number fines in most cases. 40 in a 30 zone is 33% over, 100 in a 75 zone is 33% over, 65 in a 50 zone is 18% over, 40 in a 25 zone is 60% over; which one of those scenarios is the more dangerous? Every 41% increase in speed doubles kinetic energy making collisions 2x more severe. Stopping distances tend to correlate closely with kinetic energy 2x the energy available means it takes 2x the distance to stop; in reality slightly more because reaction time is relatively constant at any speed. Power limiting of vehicles is necessary for reasons of climate damage control. 5 hours use of an average midrange SUV adds as much heat to the ecosystem as an average person's body heat does in an entire year. In 1 year of use at 5 hours per day the vehicle adds as much heat to the ecosystem as 365 average persons. this figure only includes the lopsses at the vehicle not supply chain, processing, and fuel delivery losses. Limiting vehicle power to only necessary levels would make the amount of heat added to the environment 1/3 or less, switching to electric vehicles with the same amount of reduced power can cut the total waste heat generated by a vehicle to less than 2% of the original 5 hours=1 year equivalency; when the entire oil pumping, transportation, storage, fuel production, delivery, and supply chain is added into the waste heat numbers.
- Ravenuer Not my idea of a luxury vehicle. At all.
- Clive Proportional speeding fines/penalties make more sense than fixed speed penalties as you say. 40 in a 30 is 33% over posted speeds, 100 in 75 zone is also 33% over posted speeds. 65 in a 55 zone is only 18% over. A far as power limits, the power need to be limited because the environment can not absorb the excess heat the society produces. A mid range SUV makes as much heat in 5 hours of use as an average person does in an entire year of living. To put it another way 1 year of SUV use at 5 hours per day adds as much heat to the ecosystem as 365 people years of living.
- ToolGuy I am holding out for the 3-row version.
