The 2018 model year marks the mid-cycle refresh for the Ford Mustang. Not only does the iconic pony car get a bold new look, it gets more muscle too. The folks over at Ford have released specs for the 2018 Mustang GT and it’s quicker than a Porsche 911 Carrera.

Thanks to a redesigned V8 engine and a new 10-speed Selectshift transmission, the GT can hit 0-60 miles per hour in under 4 seconds.  The blistering time is achieved thanks to Drag Strip Mode, one of five driver selectable modes, designed to deliver maximum straight-line acceleration. The new 10-speed transmission proves more efficient than the outgoing 6-speed with quicker, more accurate shifts. Tweaks to both the 5.0-liter V8 and the turbocharged EcoBoost engines have improved horsepower and torque, making the 2018 Mustang quicker than ever.
