The all-new Shelby GT350R is fresh off the assembly line at Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant. This model is one of the brand’s most athletic builds yet, with a focus on pure muscle and performance. Made to tackle tracks around the world, there’s no stopping the new Ford Shelby Mustang. The question is, does it hold up to our typical expectation of the a Ford Shelby Mustang?
According to Ford, the new Ford Shelby GT350R comes with a state-of-the-art 5.2-liter V8 engine with a flat-plane crank, generating up to 526 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. Add that to a 3.73 TORSEN limited slip differential and MagneRide suspension and you’ve got one pure-performance machine. I’d say that’s what we’ve come to expect from our Shelby Mustangs!
“This is a special day for all Mustang enthusiasts,” said Bill Ford, executive chairman of the Ford Motor Company. He further states, “We have taken the GT350 formula to the next level of innovation, style and performance. Today the legend continues.”
This model also comes with iconic racing stripes and features like Track Apps, which lets you see and set launch control, line-lock, and more. Best of all, this model comes with extremely lightweight carbon fiber wheels. What’s not to like about the GT350R? Tell us at Highway Ford what you think of the new Ford Shelby GT350R!
