The most powerful, naturally aspirated Mustang ever built

Ford gave birth to the GT350 nameplate in 1965, the same year when Carroll Shelby was commissioned to build high-performance versions of the first-generation Mustang. Built in 1965 and 1966, the initial GT350 was not just lighter than a regular Mustang, but more powerful too. Originally rated at 271 ponies, the ’Stang’s 4.7-liter V-8 was uprated to deliver 306 horsepower at Shelby American’s shop, where it would also be equipped with heavy-duty rear axles, larger rear drum brakes, and front disc brakes. All 1965 models were painted Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue stripes, while the 1966 model year brought more colors to the car. The GT350 continued in 1967, 1968 and 1969 with more cosmetic changes that performance updates. The GT350 moniker disappeared until 2011, when it returned for the fifth-generation Mustang. As the redesigned pony rolls into dealerships for the 2015 model year, the Shelby GT350 has made yet another comeback as a track-prepped version of the sixth-gen Mustang.

Introduced for the 2016 model year, the first Shelby Mustang GT350 to feature an independent rear suspension is Dearborn’s answer to the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. The body panels were reshaped into a more aerodynamic and aggressive shape, including a completely new front section, while the GT’s standard 5.0-liter V-8 was replaced by a slightly larger unit specifically developed for this muscle car. But enough with the spoilers. Keep reading to find out everything there is to know about the new Shelby GT350.

Exterior

2016 - 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang High Resolution Exterior

Visually, this is one of the angriest pony cars ever created, let alone meanest looking Mustang. Ford has turned everything up to 11 on the visual front for this new car. From the A-pillar forward, the car is completely different from a base mustang in every way aside from the headlamps.

The whole nose has been shrunk in every direction to reduce aerodynamic drag. The result is a body that looks to be stretched over the engine bay. There are parts of this new lower hood assembly that sit as much as two inches lower than a base GT.

Every piece of the car has been upgraded purely to increase airflow and aerodynamic efficiency.

Along with its smaller size the nose has a full assortment of aero upgrades, a new splitter, and every opening to funnel air into the car has gotten larger. Inside the grille you will see to angled ducts to help funnel the air more properly, the fog lights are gone and replaced with cooling for the brakes, and the nose badge has been replaced with an offset Shelby badge. Even the hood gets an upgrade with a huge vent. Every piece of the car has been upgraded purely to increase airflow and aerodynamic efficiency. Ford even included a ducted belly pan.

The profile shows of the new stance and 19-inch alloy wheels that are lightweight, but extremely stiff. Tucked tightly against these new wheels are recontoured aluminum fenders. New set of vented inner fenders work to draw out rough air. In the rear a functional diffuser aids in airflow for the optional differential cooler while simultaneously providing usable downforce. To reduce drag there is also a subtle lip spoiler that rides across the end of the tail.

New For 2017

For the 2017 model year, the GT350 gets three new exterior colors. Ruby Red Metallic replaces Competition Orange, while Deep Impact Blue is retired and replaced by Lightning Blue and Grabber Blue. The latter is a heritage color that was introduced on the first-generation Mustang and returns after being offered on the fith-gen car a few years ago.

The cockpit has been given the same attention to sporting detail as the exterior. The steering wheel has a flat bottom to make slipping into and out of the specially designed Recaro sport buckets. Not only are these seats perfectly shaped and bolstered for track driving, they also come covered in a unique cloth specifically for the GT350. The seats alone underwent hundreds of hours and multiple prototypes to ensure that they are comfortable for long term drives and supportive enough for the most hard-core track drives.

To reduce distractions to drivers in the heat of competition, all the chrome and bright finishes have been removed or altered to reduce glare

To reduce distractions to drivers in the heat of competition, all the chrome and bright finishes have been removed or altered to reduce glare. Considering the enhance performance of the new car, the gauges have all been changed to reflect the new speeds and revs the car is capable of. As is the case with all modern high-performance cars, the new interior features a collection of driver controls that alter the ABS brakes, stability and traction control systems as well as the suspension stiffness and even exhaust tuning. There are total of five unique modes.

Performance Shift Light Indicator


Another cool feature is the customizable Performance Shift Light Indicator. Usually found in full-fledged race cars, shift light indicators signal the perfect engine speed for the shift point to allow drivers to better concentrate on the road ahead rather than watching the rev counter. However, unlike most such features, Ford’s Performance Shift Light Indicator is a head-up display located in front of the driver. It can be controlled via the information center in the gauge cluster and drivers can set shift points, light intensity, and select from three modes.

For instance, in Tach mode the amber LEDs light up sequentially from left to right as engine revs build, while in Track mode LEDs light up from the outside ends to the center and flash when the shift point is reached. Lastly, in Drag mode, the LED light bar flash repeatedly when the engine reaches the preset rpm threshold.

For those who want a touch more luxury in their track toy, a tech package adds leather seats with power adjustment, shaker audio stereo and a MyFord Touch LCD infotainment system. Dual zone climate control is included with that package as well.

New For 2017

The interior remains unchanged for 2017, but Ford now gives customers to opportunity to select two new packages. First up is the Electronics Package, which adds SYNC 3, voice-activated navigation, and a nine-speaker audio system. The Convenience Package adds the same features and replaces the manual Recaro seats with leather-trimmed power sport seats.

Drivetrain

Under the lower aluminum hood you will find the most dramatic change to the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. The 5.0-lter Coyote V-8 from the Mustang GT has been thrown out the window, to be replaced with a legitimate racing engine; a 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V-8. This engine is not only the first ever Ford production engine to use a flat-plane crank, but with 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque at its disposal, this is also the most powerful naturally aspirated engine Ford has ever created.

With 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque at its disposal, this is also the most powerful naturally aspirated engine Ford has ever created.

The use of a flat-plane crank allows for a cylinder firing order that alternates between banks and reduces exhaust pulse overlap. This lets the engine breathe easier, rev higher and rev faster. Torque may seem a bit low compared to the horsepower figure, but the flat crank allows 429 pound-feet to be available across a huge range of the engine power band.

The transmission is a lightweight six-speed manual and all the power is routed through a special Ford-tuned Torsen limited slip differential. All that engine exhaust needs a place to go so the GT350 comes with a custom exhaust system featuring four large exhaust tips. This machine will sound like no other American car on the road – period.

Charging from 0 to 60 mph takes only 3.5 seconds in this ’Stang, making it one of the quickest muscle cars on the market and the fastest naturally aspirated coupe out there.

New For 2017

Arguably the most important change for 2017 is the introduction of the Track Package, previously a $6,500 options for this model, as standard equipment. The performance-enhancing bundle adds an aluminum tower-to-tower brace, high-downforce decklid spoiler, engine oil, transmission and differential coolers, and a MagneRide damping system.

With a stiffness increase of more than 28-percent over the last generation machine, the new Mustang is built with the most capable platform in the brand’s history. TO make the most of this new stiff structure, the GT350 features a custom-tuned four-wheel independent suspension system that makes use of high-tech MagneRide magnetic dampers; another first for a Ford product. The magnetic suspension system is similar to the setup used by machines like the Camaro Z/28 Cadillac CTS-V and the Ferrari 458 Italia. The shocks can be adjusted independently every 10 milliseconds for stiffness.

Compared to the Mustang GT, the new GT350 has a wider front track, increased spring rates, and a reduced ride height. To further increase capability, there is an optional tower brace.

2016 - 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang Exterior

Those new 19-inch alloy wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires with a specific compound and sidewall construction developed for the GT350. They also happen to be 10.5-inches wide up front and 11-inches wide out back.

Underneath those massive alloys is the most capable braking system Ford has ever used. Two piece cross-drilled rotors are iron discs with aluminum hats to reduce unsprung weight. The discs are an insane 15.5 inches wide up front and clamped by six-piston Brembo calipers. The rear discs are 14.9-inches and clamped by 4-pot calipers.

Prices

2016 - 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang Exterior

Pricing for the GT350 starts at $49,995, including destination and the $1,300 gas-guzzler tax, which makes it significantly more affordable than both the Camaro Z/28 and the Challenger Hellcat. For the track-focused GT350R, you’ll have to pay $63,495. Two main options are offered: the Technology Package and the Track Package.

At $7,500, the Technology Package includes navigation, Sync 3, leather, dual-zone automatic temperature control, power seats with four-way headrests and climate control, a seven-speaker audio system, Integrated Driver Control System, MagneRide, heavy-duty front springs, turn-signal mirrors, and a garage-door opener. The Track Package adds MagneRide suspension and the heavy-duty front springs, coolers for the engine oil, transmission, and differential, a strut-tower brace, Integrated Driver Control System, and a rear decklid spoiler.

Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

Judging by the looks of its aerodynamic body kit and the rumored 500-horsepower output, the Shelby GT500 could be an alternative to the track-prepped Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. Developed as a no-nonsense machine with lightness and track capability in mind, the Camaro Z/28 comes with a naturally aspirated, 7.0-liter V-8 engine rated at 505 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque. Albeit less powerful than the supercharged ZL1, the Z/28 benefits from a stripped interior and a chassis tuned to deliver optimum performance on the race course.

All that power is routed to the rear wheels by a six-speed manual transmission and enables the muscle car to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.8 seconds. Keeping the Z/28 on its best behavior is set of 19-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tires, adjustable spool-valve dampers, and Brembo carbon-ceramic brake rotors and calipers. The Camaro Z/28 is definitely a worthy competitor to the upcoming GT350, but only as long as you don’t have a look at its eye-watering, $75,000 price tag.

Revamped for the 2015 model year, the Dodge Challenger takes on the sixth-generation Mustang with a 1971-inspired exterior, an upgraded interior and very few powertrain upgrades. In terms of output, the 6.4 HEMI V-8 model sits closest to the GT350 with 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque on tap. On the other hand, and despite the race-bred chassis updates coming with Dodge’s Super Track Pak, no Challenger is actually ready to compete with a beefed-up Mustang that’s not only lighter, but comes with an independent rear suspension as well.

But if you’re only interested in having as many ponies as possible at the rear wheels without all the technology needed to lay them on a tight track, Dodge is offering the Hellcat SRT, a 707-horsepower machine already regarded as the most powerful, factory-built muscle car. The Challenger 392 starts from around $41,000, while the Hellcat SRT is expected to fetch in excess of $65,000

Conclusion

2016 - 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang Exterior
- image 579151

There is no other way to say it. Short of the Ford GT supercar – even that may be eclipsed when actual performance numbers come out - this is the most capable track machine Ford has ever created for public consumption. With the same suspension tech used by some of the greatest sports cars in the world, a race-style V-8 engine that is making more than 500 horsepower, and a completely revised exterior style with usable aerodynamic aids, there are few roads or tracks that the GT350 would not be bale to dominate on.

If you feel that the Camaro Z/28 is impressive, I feel that the Mustang GT350 may change some peoples minds. This is a new era in muscle car performance.

  • Leave it
    • * Doesn’t have 700 horsepower like the Hellcat
    • * Stripped standard interior may be too spartan for some

The GT350 made an unexpected appearance on the Nurburgring track.

Rumored ever since the redesigned pony was unveiled in December and caught testing on several occasions in the U.S., the high-performance version of the sixth-generation Mustang made an unexpected appearance on the Nurburgring track. Now wearing less camouflage, the upcoming Shelby GT350 is finally showcasing its aggressive, aerodynamic body kit and some of the goodies that will help increase its credentials on both the road and track.

The spy shots we just received from our paparazzi reveal Ford is indeed testing a more powerful iteration of the 2015 Mustang. Up front, a redesigned bumper puts a new intake configuration and a massive splitter to the muscle car’s front fascia, while a hood scoop, wider and vented fenders, and prominent side skirts complete the track-ready feel of the car. Around back, a sportier diffuser with a twin-exhaust configuration replaces the regular unit, while a subtle spoiler sits atop the trunk.

Moving onto the sides, the prototype taking hot laps around the ’Ring is equipped with lightweight, multi-spoke wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, larger-than-usual brake calipers and cross-drilled rotors. A sportier suspension decreases the vehicle’s ride height and keeps it planted on those tight Nurburgring curves. Granted, this Mustang is ready to handle a lot of power and it appears it needs only a roll-cage to become a full-time race car.

Press Release

One of the most iconic performance Mustang nameplates of all time is returning, Ford confirmed today with the reveal of the all-new Shelby® GT350 Mustang.

2016 - 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang Exterior
- image 577912

The original Shelby GT350 introduced in 1965 established Mustang’s performance credentials. The all-new Shelby GT350 Mustang, featuring the most powerful naturally aspirated Ford production engine ever, is a world-class performance vehicle, designed to tackle the planet’s most challenging roads – an all-day track car that’s also street legal.

The new GT350 builds on Carroll Shelby’s original idea – transforming a great every-day car into a dominant road racer – by taking advantage of a dramatically improved sixth-generation Mustang to create a truly special driving experience. Driving enthusiasts behind the wheel of a Shelby GT350 can expect to be treated to the most balanced, nimble and exhilarating production Mustang yet.

Ford engineers took an innovative approach with GT350. Rather than develop individual systems to perform well independently, every component and shape is optimized to work in concert; balance is the key. While paying rigorous attention to detail, the team pushed the envelope with cutting-edge materials and technologies.

“When we started working on this car, we wanted to build the best possible Mustang for the places we most love to drive – challenging back roads with a variety of corners and elevation changes – and the track on weekends,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “Every change we made to this car was driven by the functional requirements of a powerful, responsive powerplant – nimble, precise handling and massive stopping power.”

Track-tuned driveline
Early in development of the GT350, it was decided a high-revving, naturally aspirated V8 engine would best suit a track-focused Mustang.

“The final product is essentially an all-new powerplant unique to GT350 – and one that takes true advantage of the new chassis dynamics of the Mustang platform,” said Jamal Hameedi, chief engineer, Ford Global Performance Vehicles.

2016 - 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang Exterior
- image 577913

The new 5.2-liter engine is the first-ever production V8 from Ford with a flat-plane crankshaft, an architecture typically found only in racing applications or exotic European sports cars. Unlike a traditional V8, where the connecting rods are attached to the crankshaft at 90-degree intervals, this design evenly spaces all crank pins at 180-degree intervals.

The 180-degree, flat-plane layout permits a cylinder firing order that alternates between cylinder banks, reducing the overlap of exhaust pressure pulses. When combined with cylinder-head and valvetrain advancements, this permits better cylinder breathing, further extending the performance envelope of the V8.

The result is the most powerful naturally aspirated production Ford engine ever, at more than 500 horsepower, with a torque peak above 400 lb.-ft. The track capability is enhanced by the output characteristics of the engine – the 5.2-liter V8 features an exceptionally broad torque curve. Combined with its high-revving ability, the flat-plane 5.2-liter V8 gives drivers an enormous amount of performance and flexibility within each gear of the lightweight six-speed manual transmission. A standard Ford-tuned Torsen limited-slip differential optimizes cornering grip and straight-line traction.

“Make no mistake, this is an American interpretation of a flat-plane crankshaft V8, and the 5.2-liter produces a distinctive, throaty howl from its four exhaust tips,” said Hameedi.

Balanced dynamics
The new Mustang platform is the strongest in the history of the brand, with torsional stiffness increased 28 percent over the previous model. That stiff structure ensures the suspension geometry remains consistent, even under hard driving on back roads and tracks. Front stiffness is further improved on GT350 with a cutting-edge injection-molded carbon fiber composite grille opening and optional lightweight tower-to-tower brace. The front track has been increased while spring rates and bushings have been recalibrated all around, with ride height reduced compared to Mustang GT.

For optimum handling, the wheels need to respond quickly to the contours of the road and driver input. Reducing unsprung mass is key to improving that response, but a balance must be struck between taking mass out of a suspension and delivering truly capable braking performance.

Due to the significant speeds the car can develop, GT350 features the most track-credible brake system ever offered on a Ford vehicle in terms of absolute stopping power, fade resistance and brake pedal feel. The brakes are two-piece cross-drilled iron discs mounted to aluminum hats. At the front are massive 394-millimeter rotors clamped by Brembo six-piston fixed calipers with integrated caliper bridges, while 380-millimeter rotors at the rear utilize four-piston calipers.

2016 - 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang Exterior
- image 577914

GT350 makes use of extra-stiff 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels – 10.5 inches wide in front, 11.0 inches in the rear – clad in state-of-the-art Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires with GT350-specific sidewall construction, tread face and compound. The custom tires are designed to deliver maximum grip on the road or at the track.

Ultra-quick responsiveness to changing conditions is provided by the first-ever Ford application of continuously controlled MagneRide dampers. The dampers are filled with a hydraulic fluid impregnated with iron particles; when an electric current is passed through the fluid, a near-instant adjustment of the suspension performance can be made. With wheel position sensors monitoring motion thousands of times per second combined with other vehicle data, changes can be made to each corner independently every 10 milliseconds for optimum handling performance. This is a system designed not just to make the car handle better but to instill greater confidence in even the best driver.

Obsession to detail
“Everything we changed on GT350 is purely functional-driven design, with the goal of improving the overall performance of the car,” said Chris Svensson, Ford design director, The Americas. “We optimized the aero shape of the car, and then fine-tuned what was left to increase downforce and cooling airflow.” All bodywork from the windshield forward is unique to this high-performance model and up to two inches lower than Mustang GT.

2016 - 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang Exterior

The new aluminum hood has been lowered and sloped, compared to the base Mustang, tightly wrapped around the engine for the smallest possible aerodynamic signature. Front and rear aero elements have been balanced to work together on the track. The fascia has been resculpted to provide the aggressive lower front splitter with maximum pressure and a ducted belly pan delivers significant downforce. The hood outlet acts as a heat extractor while also reducing underhood lift at high speed. At the rear, much of the engineering was focused on creating an aggressive functional diffuser doing double duty to increase downforce and provide cooling air to the optional differential cooler, and a subtle lip spoiler across the trailing edge of the decklid increases downforce without adding excess drag.

The athletic stance of the all-new Mustang is further accentuated with recontoured aluminum front fenders to accommodate the wider front track and wider wheel arches. Front fender vents work with vented inner fenders to draw out turbulent air in the wheel wells and smoothly direct it down the side of the car. The forward-angled grille is designed with individual openings to draw air through the radiator, high-pressure engine air intake, cooling ducts for the front brakes and, optional with the Track Pack, an engine oil cooler and a transmission cooler.

Focus-driven cockpit changes
Like everything else about GT350, the interior has been optimized for driving, beginning with the specially designed Recaro sport seats with a unique cloth. Hundreds of hours and many prototypes went into a seat that is both comfortable in daily driving and capable on the track. A flat-bottom steering wheel makes it easier for the driver to get in and out, and is more ergonomic on the racetrack. Gauges are upgraded to reflect the enormous performance capability of the car. Chrome and bright finishes have been reduced or eliminated to prevent sun glare that may distract the driver.

The advanced technology inherent to Mustang has been deployed for duty in the Shelby GT350. An all-new integrated driver control system allows selection of five unique modes that tailor ABS, stability control, traction control, steering effort, throttle mapping, MagneRide tuning and exhaust settings, depending on driver preference, to achieve maximum performance. Drivers are invited to test them all.

Drivers interested in comfort, convenience and entertainment upgrades may select the Tech Pack, which includes power, leather-trimmed seats; Shaker Audio; 8-inch MyFord Touch® LCD touch screen; and dual zone electronic temperature control, to name a few features.

“We took the best Ford Mustang yet and massaged every aspect of the car that affects the performance driving experience,” said Hameedi. “We tested endlessly on the most challenging roads and tracks in the world, and we believe serious drivers will love the Shelby GT350 Mustang.”

50 years of Ford Mustang
Shelby GT350 Mustang is the latest in an all-new line of Mustang fastback and convertible models, including the specially designed 50th Anniversary Edition Mustang.
