The Ford Mustang has long been a symbol of American freedom and values. That tiny little pony symbolizing a wildness and inability to be tamed is the perfect symbol for a sports car. And now that famous Ford sports car is exerting its excellence even more with its latest model.

The 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R did what many thought it couldn't do. The latest Mustang was just debuted in Detroit before heading to Germany and the famous Nurburgring racing track.

The Mustang, which has been around for 50 years, made some records with its track time. According to Motor Authority, the Mustang completed "lapped the Nürburgring in a time of 7:32.19." So what's so special about that?

With that time, it means that the latest Ford Mustang "is substantially quicker... than its main target, the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28." And it could keep up with more than just the Camaro.
