Ford will sell a backseat kit for its Ford Mustang GT350R because it’s the family car you’ve been asking for, the automaker announced Thursday.
Ford will sell the backseat it removed back to you for $999 (before installation), and it’s even made from the same herd of Alcantaras as the front seats. The rear seats will sport seatbelts and all original GT350 restraint systems.
The demand was clear, according to Ford Performance folks: people want a four-seater, track-ready car that could pull double duty owning all the apexes and hauling kids — which is not already called a Focus RS.
Having said that: Who wouldn’t want to ride in the back of a paint shaker with a flat-plane crank V-8, no air conditioning, radio or much sound deadening? I’d give it a whirl. Once.
The Ford Mustang GT350R is the perfect kind of family car and really the only one you need now.
