Mustangs have a tendency to crash and it’s usually the result of a driver attempting to show off.
While the latest incident doesn’t involve a cars and coffee event, it’s still pretty cringe-worthy and involves a pretty big ego.
Details are limited, but the uploader suggests a kid was trying to show off his dad’s Shelby GT350R. This typically wouldn’t be much of an issue, but the father apparently never taught his son how to drive a stick.
As you can see in the video, things go wrong pretty fast as the car lunges forward and crashes into a wall almost immediately after being started. This suggests the Shelby was started in gear, but it’s hard to be certain.
Regardless, the kid then exits the vehicle and begins jumping around while screaming “I’m dead.” That reaction is pretty over the top and it has us questioning whether or not the whole thing was staged. That being said, if it wasn’t, we’re pretty sure the kid is in for a world of hurt.
As you may recall, the 2020 Shelby GT350R starts at $73,435 and features a 5.2-liter flat plane crank V8 engine that produces 526 hp (393 kW / 534 PS) and 429 lb-ft (581 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which enables the model to run from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in approximately 3.9 seconds.
The Shelby GT500 has stolen a bit of the car’s thunder, but the GT350R received a host of updates for 2020. Among the changes a revised front suspension, a new steering rack and a recalibrated electric power steering system. The model can also be equipped with a new Heritage Edition Package that costs $1,965 and adds a Wimbledon White exterior with Guardsman Bluestripes.
