[VIDEO] 2016 Shelby GT350R Mustang POV lap image

A brand new 2016 Shelby GT350R Mustang has recently taken a hot lap at the Grattan Raceway.

If you happen to be a fan of muscle cars, than you probably know all there is to know on the new generation of the Ford Mustang and on its hot versions, signed by Shelby. This particular model is a 2016 Shelby GT350R and it is the subject of a new video, in which it is being driven fast at the Grattan Raceway. Before clicking the play button on the clip posted below, you may want to turn your volume up because you have to hear that V8 engine roar.

The muscle car is different than the GT350 Mustang as it is getting a lot of aerodynamic improvements, some chassis engineering and a lower weight. All of these modifications are translated into a faster car. We should also mention the new body kit, the updated fender vents, the front splitter, the hood vent, the aerodynamic diffuser and so on. Under its hood, the 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine is found. This is capable of producing a total output of 526 HP (392 kW) and 580 Nm (429 lb-ft) of torque. No exact performance figures are known at this time as the blue oval is currently keeping them into the shadows. The 2016 Shelby GT350R Mustang has been officially presented to the public back in January, this year, during the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), in Detroit.
