Shelby GT350R

Monday, January 12th, 2015

The new Shelby GT350R is the latest of the streetable track-based offerings from Ford.  Based off the GT350 the new track ready version is 150 pounds lighter than its more road going sibling.  Features like Air Conditioning and a radio have been deleted.  In fact, any feature that did not improve the car’s performance around a racetrack was put on the chopping block for deletion.  Other parts tossed onto the factory floor include the rear seats, backup camera, trunk floorboard and carpet, and the emergency tire inflator and tire sealant.  Even the exhaust went under the knife as resonators were ditched giving the car a sharper exhaust note.

For those who care to drive their car to new tracks and want the benefit of in-dash navigation an optional Electronics Package is available.  This package brings back the A/C and 8-inch touch screen with nav, 7-speakers and a few other bits.  While this may add some weight back, we think it would be a necessity for those driving their cars to events rather than trailering them.

There probably isn’t anything more American than independence and appropriately, that’s exactly what the Ford Mustang’s rear end is gaining in 2015.

By now you almost certainly know that the fifth-generation Ford Mustang is ditching its solid rear axle in favor of an independent rear suspension across the entire model line. But that isn’t the only change for America’s pony car, no sir.
