The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Ford Mustang keeps its newfound finesse and pony-car attitude, blasting past its 50th year with a rorty new Shelby GT350 variant plus more ways to stand out from the crowd. The 2016 Lexus RC F can flog the road course with V-8 brute force, but it's just a bit less lithe and talented than its lighter-weight rivals.
