Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 thunders in with upgraded aero, tires, brakes

2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Ford officially introduces upgraded, all-new 2019 Mustang Shelby GT350

The updated Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 has been detailed this week, bringing numerous enhancements for better driver engagement and track performance.

Along with its looks, the GT350 is carrying over its unique 526 hp 5.2-liter V8, but is getting a few upgrades to improve its overall performance.

Ford's steadfast refusal to sell the Mustang GT350 in Britain makes us very sad indeed.

Ford collaborated with Michelin to customize a set of Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, with a GT350-specific tread pattern and different rubber compound to improve acceleration, braking and lateral grip.

The 526bhp flat-plane crank V8 remains, as does the six-speed manual transmission. Using Ford Performance's competitive track testing as a reference point, the Shelby GT350's electric power-assist three-mode electronic stability control settings have also been enhanced.

Created to deliver faster lap times and better performance overall, the 2019 GT350 has a number of aerodynamic improvements including an all-new rear spoiler with an optional Gurney flap.

"It's a rewarding vehicle to drive on track for amateurs and pros alike, while making the driver feel like a superhero". The auto comes equipped with Recaro race seats with spots for safety harnesses, but customers can now opt for power-adjusting seats with Miko suede inserts. "It's confidence inspiring in corners and begs to be pushed harder and to take corners faster".

Inside, fresh styling cues include machined aluminium trim and newly designed door panel inserts in suede. There's also a new high-performance 12-speaker audio system provided by Harman, and a now-standard eight-inch Sync 3 touchscreen system.

Along with its current crop of exterior paints, the GT350 can now be had in Ford Performance Blue or Velocity Blue, with optional Kona Blue, Shadow Black, or Oxford White racing stripes if desired.

However, it appears the 2019 GT350 goes without the design changes seen in the revised Mustang range, meaning the headlights and tail-lights are carried over from the outgoing model. No word on pricing just yet.
