2016 Mustang Shelby gt350 Redesign

The original Shelby GT350 introduced in 1965 established Mustang’s performance credentials. The all-new Shelby GT350 Mustang, featuring the most powerful naturally aspirated Ford production engine ever, is a world-class performance vehicle, designed to tackle the planet’s most challenging roads – an all-day track car that’s also street legal.

The new GT350 builds on Carroll Shelby’s original idea – transforming a great every-day car into a dominant road racer – by taking advantage of a dramatically improved sixth-generation Mustang to create a truly special driving experience. Driving enthusiasts behind the wheel of a Shelby GT350 can expect to be treated to the most balanced, nimble and exhilarating production Mustang yet.

The sixth generation of this iconic pony has been released about year ago and now it is time for some performance versions to come. With the tradition of more than 50 years, Shelby GT350 is probably one of the most expected models around. Testing model has been already noticed on the streets and Nurburgring track for many times and it is expected that the development of this model is in final phase, so it will probably come this fall as 2016 Mustang Shelby gt350.

Ford gave birth to the GT350 nameplate in 1965, the same year when Carroll Shelby was commissioned to build high-performance versions of the first-generation Mustang. Built in 1965 and 1966, the initial GT350 was not just lighter than a regular Mustang , but more powerful too. Originally rated at 271 ponies, the ’Stang’s 4.7-liter V-8 was uprated to deliver 306 horsepower at Shelby American’s shop, where it would also be equipped with heavy-duty rear axles, larger rear drum brakes, and front disc brakes. All 1965 models were painted Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue stripes, while the 1966 model year brought more colors to the car. The GT350 continued in 1967, 1968 and 1969 with more cosmetic changes that performance updates. The GT350 moniker disappeared until 2011, when it returned for the fifth-generation Mustang. As the redesigned pony rolls into dealerships for the 2015 model year, the Shelby GT350 is about to make yet another comeback as a track-prepped version of the sixth-gen Mustang.

2016 Ford Mustang Shelby gt350 Rumor

Rumored ever since the redesigned pony was unveiled in December and caught testing on several occasions in the U.S., the high-performance version of the sixth-generation Mustang made an unexpected appearance on the Nurburgring track. Now wearing less camouflage, the upcoming Shelby Shelby GT350 is finally showcasing its aggressive, aerodynamic body kit and some of the goodies that will help increase its credentials on both the road and track.

Visually, this is one of the angriest pony cars ever created, let alone meanest looking Mustang. Ford has turned everything up to 11 on the visual front for this new car. From the A-pillar forward, the car is completely different from a base mustang in every way aside from the headlamps.

2016 Mustang Shelby gt350 Specs

The 2016 Mustang Shelby gt350 will be based on the standard sixth-generation Mustang, but it will be characterized by plenty of unique features. It will share the same platform and it will feature the same basic look, which will be filled up with many unique details which will make this car even look even more aggressive and sportier. The 2016 Shelby gt350 will get new nose, which is redesigned to reduce aerodynamic drag. Beside new nose, it will also get a new spoiler, new splitter, while every opening on the car is enlarged and modified to improve airflow. Hood also includes a huge vent, while fog lights are replaced by with cooling for the brakes so we can say that almost every piece of the car has been upgraded purely to increase airflow and aerodynamic efficiency.

The GT350 uses the same “S550” platform that underpins the 2015 Mustang. We anticipate that this version will ride on a significantly stiffer suspension with adjustable dampers. Early test vehicles, spotted around the company’s Dearborn, Michigan, headquarters, wore cross-drilled carbon-ceramic brake rotors. Those mules were also rolling on 19-inch Michelin Pilot Super Sport summer performance tires, with bodies pierced by a center hood vent and what appeared to be functional fender vents behind the front wheels.

2016 Mustang Shelby gt350 Engine

This is definitely the most important newness about 2016 Mustang Shelby gt350. The 5.0 liter Coyote will be replaced with new 5.2 liter V8 which is probably one of the most exciting engines that Ford ever made. This engine will have total amount of power over 500 horses and 400 lb-ft of torque and which is the most amazing, it doesn’t feature any kind of supercharger or turbo. It is 100 percent naturally aspirated and it is the most powerful engine of that kind that company ever made. This will definitely be one of the best-sound machines around. The transmission will be six-speed manual and it is expected that 2016 Shelby gt350 will sprint to 60 mph in less than four seconds, while top speed will be over 175 mph.

The new 5.2-liter engine is the first-ever production V8 from Ford with a flat-plane crankshaft, an architecture typically found only in racing applications or exotic European sports cars. Unlike a traditional V8, where the connecting rods are attached to the crankshaft at 90-degree intervals, this design evenly spaces all crank pins at 180-degree intervals.

The 180-degree, flat-plane layout permits a cylinder firing order that alternates between cylinder banks, reducing the overlap of exhaust pressure pulses. When combined with cylinder-head and valvetrain advancements, this permits better cylinder breathing, further extending the performance envelope of the V8.

SVT isn’t trying to top its supercharged GT500 engine here. Instead, expect a version of the 5.0-liter V-8 that powers the Mustang GT. This engine might have a slightly larger displacement than the stock unit, and SVT is known to be working on a flat-plane crankshaft for the “Voodoo” engine. The lower rotating mass with such a setup should allow this V-8 to rev past 8000 rpm and deliver about 550 horsepower. We expect this engine to be mounted exclusively to a manual transmission and send its power through a limited-slip differential.
