The “R” tune model will top off the GT350 range and, compared to the standard model, will contain a unique engine and supercharger tuning.
On the standard GT350, a Whipple supercharger can be added to boost power output to 525 hp – enough to propel the modified Mustang from 0-60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds. If that’s not enough, the R tune version produces a monstrous 624 horses.
In addition to the optional “R” tune for the supercharger, Shelby American will offer a solid blue painted hood stripes as well as finished rear bumper stripes. A Watts link rear suspension, upgraded stereo, track-oriented brakes and other options are also available on the Shelby.
Shelby has said that this new model will still be able to run on regular fuel.
“The results show that the Shelby GT350 takes American performance to an entirely new level.” said John Luft, president of Shelby American.
“In recent tests, the standard supercharged car hit 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds and ran the quarter in 12 seconds flat at 121.4 mph, all while generating 1.05g of lateral acceleration and stopping from 60 mph in only 107 feet. We believe the “R” tuned GT350 will be even faster.”
If you want to go all the way to the R tune and 624 hp, write the check for $34,745.
