Mustang S550 Corner Weight Day

By -

A friend of mine recently picked up a 2016 GT350R, and we met at our local Cars & Coffee to weigh his car.  As it turns out, we were able to find all versions of the S550 present and get weights on them, sans the V6.


The GT350R is gorgeous inside and out.  I took lots more pics of it, but am hoarding them for now.  The owner was going to take me on a spin for an impression, but we ran out of time.  Please look for an feature on this car in the not-so-distant future!

LF-967 RF-1050
LR-880 RR-801
Cross weight:52.21%
Weight distribution: 54/46
TOTAL: 3701 lbs.



Next up was the GT350.  The owner was kind enough to take me for a ride in this car, as I caught him at the end of the day before he departed.  The Ford Voodoo is insane!  It just pulls and pulls and pulls.

GT 5.0 Coyote.  This car had an aftermarket exhaust in the very least.

LR-838 RR-886
Cross weight:52.21%
Weight distribution: 54/46

Finally, here’s the Ecoboost.  Looking at the car’s hood more closely, I realized the owner lives down the street from me.  This is an extremely clean car that is well cared for.  This car was the lightest as expected, and boasts a slightly more favorable weight distribution than the other cars.

I weighed several other cars, including some S197 Mustangs that I’ll add to the Corner Weight database in the Loft Forum when I get more time.  Thanks so much for reading!
