Many people say we’re living in the golden-age of technological progress, with a shiny future ahead of us. If this is true, then Ford is taking the lead on the voyage to the new world. This couldn’t be more evident than in the announcement that the company will be using 3D-printed brake parts in the Shelby GT500. That’s right: it truly is an exciting time to be alive!
The vehicle will be unveiled in January at the Detroit Auto Show. It comes out of the Advanced Manufacturing Center, where 23 machines are making three-dimensional car components. The goal is to once again revolutionize production — as the brand did one-hundred years ago when they created the moving assembly line.
In the meantime, why not check out the 2019 Ford Mustang GT? Under the hood rests a robust 5.0 liter V8 that cranks out a generous 460 horsepower at 7,000 revs per minute and 420 lb-ft of torque at 4,600 rpm. It’s equipped with a 10-speed automatic transmission which allows you to seamlessly shift, while also giving you optimal performance and a stellar fuel economy (estimated by the EPA as 16 in the city and 25 on the highway for a combined 19 mpg).
