New Ford Mustang is coming this December, but it won’t end on that. Ford also plans to introduce high performance models such as Boss, GT, SVT and Shelby shortly after basic model’s introduction. One of these, iconic Shelby GT350, will be launched probably one year after Mustang’s debut, which is scheduled for this December.
Original Shelby GT350 was introduced in January 1965. It was designed by legendary race driver, designer and entrepreneur Carroll Shelby. With over 300 hp, it was a true sports car capable both for the race and street drive. It was the first high performance version of Mustang, with 35 horses more than a basic model. Today, 1965 Shelby is one of most iconic pony cars of all time. If we consider that Ford celebrating 50th anniversary of Mustang, new GT350 will have even more heavier task to justify the name of Shelby.
2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Specs
New 2015 Mustang Shelby GT350 will be a true race car. It will be lighter than standard model, with better handling – ready for both track and street. On the other side some sources claim that new GT350 will be more focused in the track, not like original Shelby, which was “all-round” sports car. It will probably use Ford’s well known Coyote engine, tuned up for this occasion. Maybe it will not have 622 hp like monster called GT500, but it will definitely be a high performance car. This 5.0 liter V8 will produce over 450 horses.
2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Info
New 2016 Ford Mustang GT will look pretty much the same as standard six-generation Mustang, but with some own details. We expect upgraded wheels and tires, as well as drilled brake rotors. Also, GT350 will probably have its own grille, different from standard models. Its leading edge appears to be lower and protrudes more than on the standard Mustangs. Also, interior will be redesigned, with some high-tech additions like MyFord Touch system etc.
2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Release Date and Price
The price is still unknown. However, if we consider that current GT500 is about 60,000 hardly earned dollars, new GT350 will be cheaper. As we already sad, introduction of this model will probably be in the late 2014 or early 2015.
