The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R is expected to be officially presented to the public next month, during the 2014 NAIAS, in Detroit.
Despite the recent introduction of the Shelby GT350 Mustang during the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, Ford is rumored to officially pull the wraps off the more hardcore Mustang Shelby GT350R at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), in Detroit. The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet and it is currently part of a report which has been published by Road and Track.
The updated version of the impressive muscle car is believed to lose some significant weight from its body and this means that it will be dropping its rear seat and chances are less equipment will be given to it, compared to the regular GT350, seen a few weeks back. The model in question is also expected to be more aerodynamic and to bring some larger brakes and suspension changes.
The future Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R will be getting a more powerful engine than the 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 unit found in the regular Shelby 350, where more than 500 HP (373 kW) and 542 Nm (400 lb-ft) of torque are being produced, and the vehicle will be exceeding the 60,000 USD mark. More details on it are limited at this time.
