Automotive News Canada’s Take Five is a look at five new or upgraded vehicles that are destined for or have recently entered the Canadian market.
1) FORD MUSTANG SHELBY GT350
For the 2019 GT350, shown above, a refresh doesn’t change a whole lot about the performance car’s powertrain, which still features a rev-happy 526-horsepower 5.2-litre V-8.
Instead, the changes are mostly tweaks to its tuning and exterior that Ford promises will give the already-fast car even better acceleration and gymnastic ability. Changes include a new rear spoiler with an optional Gurney flap — it self-adjusts downforce with the car’s speed — and Michelin Pilot Sport 2 Cup tires. The Shelby GT350 goes on sale in the first quarter of 2019.
2) AUDI Q8
