Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Test Report
The sound of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 with its flat plane crank and high-revving 5.2 liter “Voodoo” engine is unmistakable and true awe-inspiring. With 526 horsepower at less than $60k, this might be one of the best band-for-the-buck cars on the market; that is assuming you can ever get a Shelby GT350 for this price as the muscle car is destined to be a collectible. Ford has packed the Shelby GT350 with plenty of power, aggressive styling, and sophisticated technology. Unlike other high end sports cars, the Mustang displays very few compromises. Rather this car accelerates brutally, devours curves, and brakes like a race car. Carroll Shelby had the original Ford Mustang Shelby GT 350R probably built the same way.

High performance Mustangs are nothing new. And since the turn of the century Ford has built the 2003 Cobra with 390 HP and then the Mustang GT500 which had an enormous 662 HP on tap. But more power is not always better. When the new 5.2 liter engine starts, you can hear is idle, that the spirit of Mr. Shelby lives. Each revolution of the crankshaft is converted flat here in power. This Mustang for streets; where people spend most of the time. So the Mustang GT350 for challenging roads with tight corners, stretching was built for the weekend and the GT350R for track use. The goal was a Ford Mustang with harmony, strength and balance. For this reason, the car has been completely rebuilt.

Already at Driving with the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 can feel something bliss. The Recaro seats, the six-speed gearbox, the tachometer of 8,250 revolutions permits, or twin-disc clutch that was developed for the race track, as well as everyday life. Where the car at 7500 RPM already delivers its 532 hp which is so staggering for an American V-8 engine. Usually you only see this in engines from Ferrari or Lamborghini. Two instruments are located between the air vents and show the oil pressure and oil temperature. In addition, there is a shift light display, so as not to turn on the track the car. In principle very useful, but only if you go extremely fast.

With a digital screen and Track apps, you can scroll between the tachometer and speedometer. The chassis of the Ford Mustang GT 350 has already been raised in the first meters doubt. Magnetic Ride suspension permits the selection of five different driving modes and the setting of ABS, stability control, steering, traction control or throttle response. The driving modes are already programmed for “Normal”, “Sport”, “rain”, “Track” and “drag”. The dampers are impregnated with a hydraulic fluid and filled with iron particles. Once electrical current is passed through the liquid, the suspension is adjusted to the desired position. Wheel sensors monitor vehicle data and can every 7 milliseconds driving characteristics change. This system ensures that the Mustang GT350 is easier to handle. But also that he gives himself a trained racing driver more security and confidence.

In addition, the settings for a lower air resistance or the best possible traction worry. By changing the nose of the grille, the car offers even at high speeds stability. While offering the driving modes “track” a stiffer suspension, but already the normal program is sufficient to drive like a skateboard on the road. Moreover, the hub and bearings are lighter and stiffer than the standard Ford Mustang 2016. Stiffer bushings, subframe and modified wishbone provide improved steering feedback and increased lateral stiffness. The Mustang Shelby GT350 is run with Michelin Pilot Sport tires Super, or equal to Sport Cup 2 tires. During the winding drive you realize the newly developed Brembo brakes significantly. They offer a wonderful metered braking power and give a good brake pedal feel.

The high control and the sense of stability one thinks himself to be directly connected to the brakes. Driving is on a curve, braking shortly beforehand and then pulls out at high speed and a symphonic noise from the curve. Based on a modified 180 degrees crankshaft of Voodoo V8 engine, is the deep bubble but something a brighter sound faded .

The engine with its 526 hp 429 lb-ft of torque, but makes itself at medium speeds lot of noise. In principle one is surprised that the car is permitted at all with this sound. The six-speed Tremec TR-3160 transmission is lighter than the normal Ford Mustang GT and can be engaged each course without problems.

The situation is different for the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R. Here the aim was a further reduction in weight. Everything makes the car any faster was removed. Whether air conditioning, stereo system, rear seat, trunk floor panel, carpet, reversing camera or emergency tires. Even the exhaust was changed, is now easier and sounds even louder. The wheels have been replaced with carbon fiber wheels, giving a saving of 30 kilos in the unsprung masses. However, Ford offers an electronics package with 8 inch Navi, speakers and dual-zone air conditioning. When driving with the Shelby GT350 R you can clearly see how the Mustang screams that he is a Shelby GT350R. World-class chassis and highly efficient aerodynamics as get to feel this normal just professional racing drivers. And unlike the Porsche 911 GT3, the Mustang Shelby GT350 is more than $100,000 cheaper. In the wind tunnel, the spoiler lip and the rear edge of the trunk lid has been optimized so that the car now produces twice the output of a Porsche 911 GT3. The chassis is designed for speed and the GT350 no slouch.

The Ford Mustang GT350 offers an incomparable combination of balance, finesse, performance and luxury. The car excites all the senses and offers an ultimate driving experience. Ford has captured the essence of the original Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 with this car and created a fun machine, which is what every enthusiast is hoping for.

The new Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 has a great engine, but is also no lightweight compared to that of something like a Corvette. The Shelby GT350 is also not offered as automatic. In regards to luxury amenities and technology the Mustang is clearly inferior to the Mercedes C 63 AMG S or BMW M4. But the performance figures are almost the same in all three sports cars with the Shelby GT350 costing about half as much!
