Mustang. The name says it all— unbridled power… quick as the wind… and incredibly nimble on any terrain. This latest edition, from a long line of pedigree winners, is leaner and meaner… and, as expected, is decked out with the hottest technology trappings and creature comforts— many as standard features. Unmistakably, this pony is sleeker than the last stable of Mustangs, with a wider track on chassis that’s primed for the type of powerful, spirited driving that makes you want to hit the open road and never back off on the accelerator. The new Mustang GT Convertible is comfortably cool, versatile to drive, and designed with a fresh look and style that will definitely turn heads. You’ve got to check it out in person.

Ford Mustang ShelbyThe Ford Mustang is an impressive enough vehicle by itself, but the new Ford Shelby Mustang performance is being taken to an even greater level. The Ford Shelby was first created to just that: turn the Mustang up from great sports car to a true road warrior, a supercar in its own right. The new Ford Shelby GT350, with better body design, suspension systems, and more, is literally the best one yet.

The new Shelby Mustang comes with the new MagneRide suspension system, plus the car has an unprecedented level of engineering that makes the body rigid and responsive.

“When we started working on this car, we wanted to build the best possible Mustang for the places we most love to drive – challenging back roads with a variety of corners and elevation changes, and at the track on weekends,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “Every change we made to this car was driven by the functional requirements of a powerful, responsive powerplant.”

Come see us at Hassett Automotive to learn more about the new Shelby Mustang. We’ll tell you all about the GT350, with its stiffer chassis and better brakes. Or, if you’re more interested in the normal Mustang, we’d love to show you that model as well.
