The online configurator for the hot Shelby Mustang GT350 and GT350R has been launched.
If you happen to be a muscle car fan on the lookout for the brand new Shelby GT350 or Shelby GT350R Mustangs, than you have come to the right place because the blue oval has recently launched the online configurators for the two vehicles. According to the company, the Shelby Mustang GT350 has a starting price of 48,695 USD and for the hotter Shelby Mustang GT350R, customers will have to pay 62,195 USD. This basically means that the range-topping muscle car is almost 13,000 USD cheaper than its main competitor, the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.
The two muscle cars are making use of a 5.2 liter V8 engine, which has a rev limiter of 8,250 rpm. The engine is the most power dense and powerful naturally aspirated road-unit ever to have been produced by Ford. This is capable of producing a total output of 526 HP and it has a peak torque of 429 lb-ft. The horsepower figure means basically a 102 HP per liter of displacement and the peak is reached at 7,500 rpm. The maximum torque is available at a lower 4,750 rpm, but 90 percent of the torque figure is coming in between 3,450 rpm and 7,000 rpm. Ford has also used an 87 mm throttle body, which is also the largest ever used on one of the company’s engines. In both vehicles, power is being sent to the wheels through a six-speed Tremec manual transmission. You can check out the online configurator here.
