It’s something we’ve been waiting for ever since the reveal of the Ford GT back in 2015: a hands-on driving review of the American supercar. Tim Stevens from Roadshow was one of the lucky few to get some wheel time, and it looks like a beast on the track. But is it as good on the road?

The new Mustang convertible gets all the same cool enhancements as the fastback version, and looks particularly brilliant in Ingot Silver with its top dropped. We can only imagine how good it sounds with that more powerful new 5.0L V8 and active exhaust.

Timeless Kustoms‘ tricked out 1965 Ford Mustang is one of the coolest cars we’ve seen on Jay Leno’s Garage yet. The retro-modern fastback beast has a 5.1L turbo/supercharged 1000hp V8 and a badass red interior with a roll cage. Here’s some testing and dyno footage.

The computers have won. Cars with automatic transmission are more efficient and consistent than manuals. But if you believe that owning a high performance vehicle is about having fun, Carfection has for you a bucket list of cars with “a proper gearbox.”

“A Ford?” Solid Snake? More like Sellout Snake. Voice actors David Hayter, Paul Eiding and Doug Stone reprised their roles as Snake, Col. Campbell and Psycho Mantis in a pair of commercials for Ford vehicles. The Captain Planet ad is also funny.
