Are you hoping Santa brings you a new Shelby GT350 in his sleigh? Well, thanks to Ford’s rigorous testing, you can be sure the car is ready to make it through the snow.
Yes, even though we don’t expect most people to drive their Mustangs in extreme conditions, Ford tests its vehicles to survive in these environs. It even puts its top-of-the-line performers to these tests.
As you can see here, a camo-covered Shelby GT350 mule gets a Season’s Greeting of cold air and snow and still keeps doing its thing. Ford’s test lab can swing the temperatures from -40 to 131 degrees to simulate any extreme the planet can throw at its cars (and competitor cars).
Watch some of the testing in action right here:
