The canary-yellow GT350R we tested announces its intentions with a double black racing stripe that stretches straight down the car’s middle. Its gaping black maw gives off the impression of an ill-tempered manta ray, while its carbon-fiber wheels, massive downforce-generating rear wing, wide tires and low-slung stance work in concert to get the most out of its 526-horsepower, 5.2-liter V-8.

The privilege of rocketing forward on the track in the GT350R will set you back around $66,500 with the optional Electronics Package. While you’re making up your mind whether that’s practical for your gridlock-filled commute, check out the photo gallery below.
