They’re Back: Another chance to own a Shelby GT350 and GT350R
It’s a great day for all Mustang enthusiasts and in honor of National Mustang Day, Ford Motor Company announced that the most track-capable, street legal Mustang ever built is back for another lap. That’s right, the Shelby GT350 and GT350R are continuing in 2018, giving everyone another opportunity to get into the highly coveted pony car.
The 2018 models will be available in showrooms this fall and the new models will be unchanged from the 2017 versions, with the exception of three new exterior color choices in Orange Fury, Kona Blue, and Lead Foot Gray.
Standard equipment carrying over to the 2018 Shelby GT350 and GT350R Mustang includes the incredible 5.2L V8 FPC engine that produces 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque, as well as engine oil, transmission and differential coolers to keep the car properly cooled while on the track. In addition, a no-compromise braking system with vented 15.5-inch two-piece front rotors and six-piston Brembo calipers along with the MagneRide damping system round out the standard equipment to produce the most balanced Mustang ever.
An available Electronics Package for both models includes SYNC 3, voice-activated navigation and nine-speaker audio system. An available Convenience Package for GT350 models replaces Recaro manual seats with six-way power, heated and cooled sport seats with Miko suede inserts for both driver and passenger.
