By that, I mean the GT350 is full of annoying, track car charm. This is mainly due to its steering not being for the faint of heart.

The steering is awfully busy for a street car. Between its ultra-sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires that are spurred on by its OEM track-friendly alignment, it follows every miniscule crack in the road. Especially on the highway. Resting a few fingers lightly on the bottom of the wheel during a normal, open highway cruise usually isn’t an option, this is a firm-grasp-at-all-times kind of ride.

A large crack, bridge expansion joint, or even decent-sized oak leaf could grab the Michelin’s sticky compound and cut the wheel sharply at any moment. You really have to hold on. It’s kind of like off-road driving over gravel and larger rocks -it’s best to keep thumbs out of the wheel’s spokes, so as to prevent losing the ability to give two thumbs up to other Shelbys on the road.
