Shelby creates new GT350

To celebrate the 45th anniversary of the original 1965 Shelby GT350, Shelby American has just unveiled an all new GT350 Mustang. Presented initially in concept form, the new GT350 features a supercharged version of the new 5.0-liter V8 engine in the 2011 Mustang as well as performance upgrades from Ford Racing, Borla, Cragar, Baer and others.

Unlike Shelby’s GT500, the GT350 will be a post-title upgrade available from Shelby in the States. American customers can have their 2011 Mustangs shipped directly to Shelby’s Las Vegas facility to be converted or they can deliver the car themselves. Once received at Shelby, each Mustang is fitted with a Ford Racing supercharger good for approximately 500 horsepower, a Ford Racing suspension system, Baer brakes front and rear, Borla exhaust system and Cragar wheels. For the exterior, Shelby fits a new front fascia, front splitter, functional hood scoop tail light trim, rear deck lid filler panel and a replacement rear fascia with centre exhaust exit. There’s only one colour combination white with Guardsman Blue racing stripes.

What’s the price for the extensive upgrade? Shelby lists the full package at $33,995 USD, which naturally doesn’t include the base car. With the 2011 Mustang GT costing just over $30,000 USD, the total price of the GT350 will actually exceed that of the Shelby GT500.
