|Bloomberg Names 2011 Mustang GT As Best Sports Car
Just hours after hearing that the Ford Mustang was chosen by Automobile Magazine for their All Star Awards we got word that the 2011 Mustang GT has once again been picked as the top car in its category, this time by Bloomberg for Best Sports Car. "The Mustang has reinvented itself more times than Madonna, yet this is the first time I’ve ever truly loved it. I was sure the Ferrari 458 Italia would be my sports car of the year, but after tearing around in the new ‘Stang GT it was clear the democratic $30,000 crowd pleaser will bring more joy to more drivers than the fortunate few in the $225,000 supercar." said Jason Harper of Bloomberg "Not only does it offer an incredible 412 horsepower from a new 5.0 liter V8, the old-school suspension has been tweaked to attack winding back routes as well as Route 66. It gets 26 mpg and even the interior is well executed. Power to the people, indeed. From $30,495." (now $29,995)
The Mustang wasn't the only Ford chosen by Bloomberg, the 2011 Ford Fiesta was picked as the Best Economy Car. "It makes the most out of its 120-horsepower four-cylinder motor by hustling through city traffic and even manages up to 40 mpg on the highway. With goodies like the available Sync infotainment system, you’ll hardly feel like you’re downsizing. From $15,800." Other vehicles awarded include the Jaguar XJ L as Best Executive Sedan, Kia Sorento for Best Crossover/Family Car, Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 as Best Convertible, Chevrolet Volt for Best Green and Best Car Overall.
