Say hello to the updated Ford Mustang Shelby GT350…

2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Gets Sharper More Stylish

It has the most powerful naturally-aspirated engine Ford has ever unleashed in a production vehicle - a 5.2-liter V8 that revs to a howling 8250rpm and delivers a quoted 387kW and 583Nm, mated to a Tremec six-speed manual gearbox.

Along with its looks, the GT350 is carrying over its unique 526 hp 5.2-liter V8, but is getting a few upgrades to improve its overall performance. Ford says the grille was designed using information learned from the wind tunnel with the Ford Performance Mustang, road racing cars and the GT500.

"Upgrades to Mustang Shelby GT350's standard MagneRide active suspension complement the aero and tire enhancements with recalibrated springs and revised damping to take full advantage of the improvements", Ford writes in the release.

"Along with improved grip, brake and chassis refinements, Shelby GT350 brings a whole new level of performance driving", said Billy Johnson, FIA World Endurance Ford GT and IMSA Mustang GT4 driver.

In addition, the brand says its engineering team worked with Michelin to develop Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres with a GT350-specific tread pattern and different compound. The electric power-assist steering, anti-lock braking and electronic stability control have also been adjusted, drawing from hundreds of hours of competitive track testing. Inside, the GT350 gains machined aluminum instrument panel trim elements that are available in carbon, as well as power-adjustable Miko suede bucket seats and suede door trim.

A 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system is also available, controlled via a standard-fit 20cm Sync 3 touchscreen. Buyers can also opt for factory-painted racing stripes in high-gloss Shadow Black, Oxford White or Kona Blue. "The new Shelby GT350 is our ultimate track Mustang".

However, it appears the 2019 GT350 goes without the design changes seen in the revised Mustang range, meaning the headlights and tail-lights are carried over from the outgoing model. No word on pricing just yet.
