We drove the 662-horsepower 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and found it to be the American supercar for the 99 percent. However, it seems to be missing some mojo. While it is brutally fast, it doesn't feel brutal while driving it. It almost feels tame around town, though there's no hiding its snarly exhaust note.

Velocity Channel aired a three part miniseries featuring Carroll Shelby and his life. There's no denying Shelby had an impact on the auto industry in many ways, but many people don't know to what extent. The miniseries was broken into three parts featuring his childhood, his humble beginnings working with Ford, and then the later part of his life.

Lexus recalled the GS 350 F Sport due to a glitch with the ECU. The issue could lead to problems with the steering and approximately 650 vehicles are affected. All vehicles recalled are 2013 models and are rear-wheel drive. Lexus dealerships will reprogram the affected cars' ECUs for no charge, and that should fix the issue.
