Ford Performance is making due with its promises of delivering a huge array of models, with their latest introduction being a racing Mustang that will compete in the Trans Am, NASA and SCCA club racing challenges.
The all-new Shelby FP350S is a successor for the Boss 302S – and it’s being presented this week at the 2016 Performance Racing Industry show in Indianapolis, with an emphasis on various road racing sprint events in classes such as the Trans Am (TA3 and TA4), NASA, SCCA club racing (T1 and T2), and many others. The FP division is great at delivering such models – just remember the FR500C, Boss 302R, or the Shelby GT350R-C and GT4.
Of course, the new ride is motivated by a V8 5.2-liter engine which has been honed with Ford Performance Parts and linked to a Tremec 3160 manual transmission. It’s also adorned with a unibody chassis with seam welding and a FIA-compliant six-point roll cage. Among the included perks we can mention the race-oriented exhaust, as well as massive body kit with front splitter and a carbon fiber adjustable rear wing.
The FP350S rides on 19-inch alloys, but Ford Performance can hook racers to an optional 18-inch forged set, as well as race-oriented suspension, high-performance brakes, and electric steering calibrations. There’s also MOTEC data acquisition, a FIA-compliant Sparco racing seat, a quick-release steering wheel, and a Sabelt racing harness also with FIA’s blessing.
