Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 revealed, still not for Oz

2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

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.

What's New: For the new model year, Ford Performance chose to focus on improving the GT350's handling characteristics, improving aerodynamics, suspension, brakes, and tires.

"It's a rewarding auto to drive on track for amateurs as well as pros", he said.

Perhaps the most notable update is the addition of a new rear spoiler with optional Gurney flap and optimised grille closeout, which Ford says was "designed and tuned with experience gained from wind tunnel development" of the Ford Performance Mustang road course racing cars and upcoming Shelby GT500 model.

Is Halo Infinite an Open World Game?
Playground Games , a 200-plus-employee studio based in Leamington Spa, UK, which developed the Forza Horizon Series of Games. Of course there's no current ETA on the next Xbox , but Navi probably won't be ready until 2019 so maybe 2020 or 2021.

Sticking with the performance theme, the GT350's suspension has has recalibrated springs and modified dampers. "It's confidence inspiring in corners and begs to be pushed harder and to take corners faster". Also, the settings for the electric power-assist three-mode electronic stability control have been changed. New Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires with a Shelby-specific tread pattern - 295/35 front and 305/35 rear - wrap around new 19-inch aluminum wheels. Inside, drivers will find new power-adjustable front seats and revised door panels with dark slate Miko suede upholstery.

A 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system is also available, controlled via a standard-fit 20cm Sync 3 touchscreen.

Along with its current crop of exterior paints, the GT350 can now be had in Ford Performance Blue or Velocity Blue, with optional Kona Blue, Shadow Black, or Oxford White racing stripes if desired.

The new Mustang Shelby GT350 will be released in the United States early in 2019, but Ford Southern Africa say there are unfortunately no plans for right hand-drive production, so we won't be getting it in South Africa. What they can not opt for, though, is the same aesthetic or functional updates Ford made to the standard Mustang for this year.
