On this week’s Yuri and Jakub Go For a Drive, the boys are testing the 2017 Ford Mustang GT Convertible. The Mustang is the quintessential sports car for the people. It’s a desirable performance car that’s actually attainable for most people. How many cars can you buy with a 435 horsepower V8 engine, rear-wheel drive, and a 6-speed manual gearbox, not to mention the other goodies like the Brembo brakes, and Track Apps?
The Mustang comes in many flavours, but for many, the one to have is the GT with a big V8 engine under the hood. There’s nothing quite like the sound and feel of a V8, and the top-down driving experience of the convertible as tested here only makes it that much more enjoyable. It will be interesting to see how the updated 2018 Mustang ups the bar on this model, but for now, the current Mustang remains as sweet as ever.
