2016 Ford Mustang GT350 Will Get Even More Hardcore Track Model
With recent spyshots of the Ford Mustang GT350 hitting the we b, we contacted our Ford sources for more info, and got a few more tidbits about the car.
Our sources tell us that a magnetic shock absorber system is under development, along with an even more hardcore, track-focused model. Details on this were scant, but better brake cooling and “cooling pump ports” for the transmission. If so, this would echo the last-generation Boss 302 and the Laguna Seca model, which went even further in its performance-focused mission by doing away with the back seats and adding additional bracing.
One notable absence on the new GT350: an engine cover. Ford has apparently decided to show off the all-new 5.2L Ti-VCT naturally aspirated motor, without any plastic adorning the engine bay. What a relief.
Wow. As the M3 dilutes its track prowess, Ford continues to sharpen it in the Mustang.
"One notable absence on the new GT350: an engine cover. Ford has apparently decided to show off the all-new 5.2L Ti-VCT naturally aspirated motor, without any plastic adorning the engine bay. What a relief." You have spy-shots of the engine bay, or is this more gratuitous rumors?
Having seen this new Mustang in the flesh, it presents well. I like the fastback bit, and the unadorned simple rear. However, that does not match up to the fiddly front end, and overall I think they've made it either a) too long, or b) appear too long, if it's not actually longer. Having complained about said length on the Mustang, I then say the Mark X version should be even longer.
Yay for the removal of the hated engine cover! If only everyone else would follow suit.
