The all-new Shelby┬« GT350R Mustang has been revealed by Ford. The car would hit the roads later this year and is one of the most outstanding models in terms of aerodynamics, light-weighting and chassis engineering. According to the Ford group vice president, Global Product Development – Raj Nair, this new launch is a thoroughbred street car that utilizes technology and ingenuity to provide the car enthusiasts with a never-before-experienced performance.

GT350R is armed with most powerful naturally aspirated engine that the company has ever created. Also present is a specially tuned suspension. To ensure superior technology, Ford has incorporated revised spring rates & antiroll bars, unique track-tuned alignment settings, lower ride height, revised bushings as well as jounce bumpers, revised calibration that control the MagneRide dampers and also cross-axis ball joints in the front suspension. The performance is extraordinary, with more than 500 HP and the torque being greater than 400 lb- ft. Moreover, the air-to-oil engine oil cooler helps maintain the engine temperatures under the harshest conditions.

Excellent aerodynamics is made possible through several features – hood vent for heat extraction and lift reduction, an aggressive diffuser, underbody belly pans front and rear, vented wheel wells, wheel air curtains, turbulence-reducing fender vents and side skirts. Ford has removed several items to cut down on the weight – exhaust resonators, air conditioning, rear seats, the stereo system, trunk floorboard & carpet, emergency tire sealer & inflator and backup camera. As a result, the car is 130 pounds lighter when compared with Shelby GT350 Track Pack. The company will offer an optional electronic package for customers seeking convenience. This includes features such as dual-zone air conditioning, seven-speaker audio system, 8-inch touch screen along with navigation and turn signal mirrors. The notable features in the exterior are carbon fiber wheels, red pin striping included at the edges of the optional racing stripes, red painted brake calipers, larger front splitter and rear wing.
