2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: The Soundtrack

Last night was the first time in a while that I rolled in our long-term 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0. And yes, I did enjoy it. I've been driving quite a few utiliarian test cars recently. Some of them are boring, but almost all of them sound boring.

I usually get in a test car and immediately crank the radio. But last night, I skipped the Sirus and listened to the 5.0 intake and exhaust sounds instead.

And although it's not as good as the soundtrack from "Bullitt,"our Mustang GT's soundtrack sounds just fine from the driver's seat.

(There has been a lot of discussion as to whether those engine and exhaust sounds from Bullitt are actual or were done in post-production. Muscle car fans: please weigh in on this.)
