Ford have released details of a new super Mustang
Ford has recently revealed a Super Mustang, with the iconic Shelby name, and released specification details
Following months and months of teasers wetting the appetite of Ford Mustang fans all-round the globe, Ford has finally unwrapped the Shelby-tuned model at the 2014 LA Motor Show. Named the GT350, it will take its place as the fastest Mustang in the range.
The new Ford Mustang eventually land in the UK next year, with the release of a Shelby version surely increasing interest further. But its bad news that the Shelby GT350 is unlikely to land on our shores any time soon, according to Ford UK.
Ford has decided make changes to the American muscle car concerning its 5.2-litre V8, which loses its traditional supercharger in favour of high-revving natural aspiration (N/A). It uses a new flat-plain crankshaft – a first time for any Ford V8 – to produce in excess of 500bhp and 540Nm of torque.
Ford’s new Shelby Mustang sends Power to the road through a six-speed manual gearbox and a Torsen limited-slip differential and large Brembo brakes also make an appearance on this new model. A new optional Track Pack adds engine and transmission oil coolers for sustained high-speed action, as well as bespoke 19-inch wheels and an aluminium bonnet.
Ford has made styling changes for the Shelby including unique badging, a low front splitter, a carbon-fibre composite grille and a brand new rear diffuser. Inside, there are high grip Recaro bucket seats, cool dials and a new five-mode drive control system.
Prices for the GT350 are yet to be confirmed, but expect at least £6,500 to be added to the standard 420bhp 5.0-litre V8 when it arrives in the UK.
