2015 NAIAS Highlights: 2016 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R

The name of GT350 isn’t a new thing. Back to 1965, when Ford and Caroll Shelby developed a race car based-on Mustang which is lighter, faster, and had a better suspension. And it’s become iconic Mustangs. And now, Ford’s bringing back the name (and add ‘R’ letter). With this muscle car, Ford wants to introduce its latest innovation in aerodynamics, chassis engineering, and light-weight construction sectors.

The two-door car is the first Ford which comes with naturally aspirated and flat-plane crankshaft V8 engine. The engine capacity is 5.2L with more than 500 hp and over 542 Nm of torque. In technical sector, Ford dropped its weight around 130 pounds. The engineers have removed air conditioning, audio system, rear seats, carpet, backup camera, emergency tire sealer, and inflator. But if you wanted more comfort when drive it, Ford offers optional the dual-zone air conditioning, 8-inch touchscreen, seven speakers audio system, and turn signal mirror.

The Chevy Camaro Z/28 rival, has revised spring rates and antiroll bars. Outside, Ford has thrown off its logo and replaced it with snake-ready-to-bite Shelby emblem on the grille. It looks more aggressive than the regular Mustang because the designer has added front skirt and honeycomb grille. The side skirt, big spoiler, rear diffuser, and four mufflers make GT350R even more dynamic. In the cabin, you’ll see white stitching seats, Shelby logo on steering wheel, and more.

2016 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R will go on sale in Canada and USA later this year. And for your information, this car is street legal, too. So, you can drive around town with this beast.
