Ford has infused its 2019 Shelby GT350 Mustang with all the latest tire, aerodynamic and chassis technology learned from their Mustang road course racing programs. The rear spoiler has been re-designed to offer greater aerodynamic efficiency when equipped with the new optional Gurney flap that adjusts its angle for optimal results. The MagneRide active suspension has received re calibrated springs and revised damping to compliment the newly developed Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires with a Shelby GT350-specific tread pattern and compound. The 295/35 front and 305/35 rear tires are wrapped around new 19-inch aluminum wheels.
The engine remains the same high-revving 5.2L naturally aspirated V8 that stands as the most powerful naturally aspirated Ford production engine ever. POwer delivery is rated at 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque with a 8,250-rpm redline.
"Somewhere, Carroll is smiling," said Hermann Salenbauch, global director for Ford Performance vehicle programs. "The new Shelby GT350 is our ultimate track Mustang. We've stuck to Carroll Shelby's original formula for winning championships and made our Shelby GT350 even better with the latest in race-proven aerodynamics, tire and chassis technology."
