Ford won again in the Popular Mechanics 2010 Automotive Excellence Awards, winning more categories by a single brand than any other automaker in the history of the awards. And guess what, it includes the Mustang Shelby GT500 in the Performance category. Ford came out on top for most of the Poplular Mechanics Automotive Excellence Awards’ categories.
It wouldn’t be a surprise due to the fact that Ford made good sales this year so far while other car manufactures are struggling. The editors of Popular Mechanics describe the Mustang Shelby GT500 as a new superpower to contend with in the 21st-century muscle car wars.
“The Mustang Shelby GT500 – with its incredibly potent 5.4-liter V-8 engine – certainly impressed us,” said Stewart. “But it was Ford Special Vehicle Team’s (SVT) refinement of the chassis that made our staff declare the GT500 the best Mustang in the model’s long 45-year history.”
