By now I’m sure you have all come to realize that the new Shelby GT350R is by far and away the most vicious Mustang you can buy from the factory. So until they come up with a GT500, this beast is the king of pony cars and deservedly so, on the evidence of how it sounds, how it takes off, and how awesome it looks doing those things.

In this video we see a white Shelby GT350R at Shift-S3ctor’s California Airstrip Attack engaging in some provocative warm up routine before taking on rivals one by one at the drag strip:
