Many used to laugh at it. Now they regret laughing. When Ford first showed off its brilliant GT350 for 2016, everyone took notice. When Ford revealed its arsenal of abilities and specs, their eyes widened, and when Ford revealed its price, they simply popped out. Here was a car with flat plane crank V8, lots of power, good handling, and oodles of style and presence, for a lot less than an M4 with considerably less power. On paper atleast, its a winner.
It produces a good round 510 bhp(as much as the twice as expensive Mercedes AMG GT).
Shelby GT350 (2016-)
For 2015, GT350 has been confirmed, featuring a 5.2 L Flat Plane Crank V8 engine with 526 hp (392 kW) and 429 lb·ft (582 N·m) of torque. The GT350 is more track focused than the GT500, and was bench marked against the Camaro Z28, Porsche GT3, and BMW M4. Notable features are track-focused chassis tuning, significant aero-dynamic changes to include lowering the hood around the engine, two piece Brembo brakes, MagneRide damping option, light weight Tremec six speed manual transmission, Recaro seats, and various light weighting efforts. Specifically a carbon fiber reinforced polymer radiator support that directs cooling channels for various components.
Though not direct competitors, any bloke in a DB9, Maseratti Gran Turismo, Corvette or even an Audi R8 should be wary of pulling up against this beast at traffic lights.
Additional options, such as larger alloy wheels, navigation system, rear backup sensors, a rear backup camera, Blind Spot Monitoring, security system, remote vehicle starter system, SHAKER PRO Surround Sound Premium Sound System, premium leather seating surfaces, sunroof and HID front headlamps are available. Interior color schemes, such as Coral Red and Saddle, are available in addition to the standard Black interior color scheme.
Shelby GT350R (2016-)
A further enhanced and even more limited edition of the GT350 with an "R" package (GT350R) was announced by Ford at the 2015 North American International Auto show in Detroit, to be available to customers later in the year with only 37 units being made. The first GT350R with #001 sold for $1 million at Barrett Jackson Auction at Scottsdale, Arizona.
A combination of changes to aerodynamics and suspension tuning to the new Shelby® GT350R Mustang leads to most race-ready road-legal Mustang ever. Significant engineering innovations result in weight savings, aero improvements to benefit on-track performance; Ford is the first major automaker to introduce carbon fiber wheels as standard equipment on Shelby GT350R Mustang. Items removed include air conditioning, the stereo system, rear seats, trunk floorboard and carpet, backup camera and emergency tire sealer and inflator. Exhaust resonators also have been removed for weight savings with the benefit of creating a sharper exhaust tone.
The Shelby GT350R is more than 130 lbs (59 kg) lighter than the Shelby GT350 Track Pack model, which has proven its durability in multiple 24 hour racetrack tests. The GT350R also comes with carbon fiber rims which contain NASA technology and weigh only 18 lbs (8 kg) each compared to similarly specified aluminum rims which typically weigh 33 lbs (15 kg) each.
Aside from carbon fiber wheels, larger front splitter and rear wing, Shelby GT350R features distinct design details. Exterior touches include red painted brake calipers, red pin striping at the edges of the optional over-the-top racing stripes and Shelby GT350R badging. Inside is high-contrast red stitching, Shelby GT350R badging and the D-shaped steering wheel fitted with a red center mark at the top.
One optional feature for the GT350R is the GT350R Technology Package, which adds the Ford SYNC 3 multimedia infotainment system, seven speakers, a rear backup camera system, SIRIUS-XM Satellite Radio, and air conditioning. The package is ideal for GT350R buyers who plan to use their car for more than track purposes or for show.
