2017 Ford Mustang Shelby® GT350
A 100% Pure Adrenaline Rush.
Just looking at the Shelby® GT350 makes your heart beat faster. A true example of form beautifully following function. Now imagine strapping yourself in and firing up that 5.2L V8. Revving it. Feeling that incredible horsepower chomping at the bit. Your instrument panel is a panorama of information that's vital to know on the track. You grip the shifter and push it into first. A positive click. And you're off on your own thrill ride. That giddy exhilaration you feel is what the designers and engineers had in mind all along.
The 5.2L V8 flat-plane crank is unique to the Shelby® GT350 and Shelby® GT350R. It produces 526 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque. It's designed to be the most powerful naturally aspirated Ford production engine ever.
Transmission coolers keep the world-class TREMEC® 3160 six-speed transmission at optimum temperatures.
Up front, six-piston Brembo™ calipers and 15.5-inch SHW® multipiece rotors are cross-drilled and vented to store and dissipate energy, so they perform to track standards and resist fading. You can thank Ford Performance for that.
In the rear, four-piston Brembo™ calipers and 14.9-inch SHW® multipiece disc are cross-drilled and vented to deliver fade-free performance on the track or road.
A World-Class Sports Car Teamed Up With World-Class Tech.
The Shelby® GT350 features the MagneRide™ Damping System. It monitors and adjusts itself thousands of times per second, creating a dynamic, adrenaline-fueled driving experience while also producing that signature growl that will leave you breathless. The quad exhaust with active valve technology helps maximize the awesome power of the 5.2L V8.
This spoiler isn't just some fashion statement. It's light weight works in unison with the rest of the car's aerodynamics. It adds down force which keeps the Shelby® GT350 stable at track speeds.
The rear diffuser increases downforce, helping to keep the car stable at high speeds while providing air to the differential cooler.
The differential cooler keeps fluids at optimum temperatures for maximum performance while on the race track.
Quad Exhaust Tips With Active Valve
Quad tips with an active valve technology increase the air flow through the system, reducing back pressure and unleashing the full potential of the 5.2L V8.

5.2L V8 Engine with a Flat-Plane Crank That Produces 526 HP2 and 429 LB.-FT of Torque
The hand-assembled 5.2L Ti-VCT V8 with a Flat-Plane Crank (FPC) found on the 2017 Ford Shelby® GT350 is the most powerful naturally aspirated road-going engine in Ford history. With a redline of 8,250 rpm, it's also Ford's highest- revving production V8 yet.
No-Compromise Braking System
Brembo™ front and rear calipers with cross-drilled, two-piece, highly engineered brake rotors haul down the Shelby® GT350 in a hurry. The front rotors 394mm (15.5”) and in the back they’re 380mm (14.9”). Use of aluminum hats in the rotors helps cut overall weight. They are specially designed to store and dissipate braking energy during track use.
Magneride™ Damping System And Tremec® 3160 6-Speed Manual Transmission
The MagneRide™ Damping System monitors and adjusts itself thousands of times per second, creating a dynamic, adrenaline-fueled driving experience. And the world-class TREMEC® 3160 6-speed manual transmission is light and strong. Tough enough to handle extremely high engine speeds as well as the rigors of long and brutal track duty, the transmission also provides the kind of precision engagement, smoothness, and reduction in weight and rotating inertia demanded by Ford Performance.

The Shelby® GT350R. Ready To Race.
The Shelby® GT350R is a racing machine, pure and simple. It rides on 19-inch carbon-fiber wheels, wrapped in Michelin® Pilot® Sport Cup 2 Tires. It sports a carbon-fiber rear wing, a larger front splitter and unique chassis tuning that doesn't make any compromises for day-to-day life on the road. Just as important as what the Shelby® GT350R has, it's what it doesn’t have to save as much weight as possible. So there's no rear seat, rear view camera, audio system, SYNC,® auxiliary gauges, tire inflator and sealant kit, or USB port. There's not even a floor mat. Don't sweat that. You'll be wiping your feet on the competition.
