Our First Official Look At The Ford Shelby GT350

Derek Kreindler
by Derek Kreindler

All we’ve got for now are these CGI renders and a clip of the exhaust. But Ford’s most track-focused pony car will have a flat-plane crankshaft displacing 5.2L

Also on board is MagneRide suspension, and an optional diff cooler to chill the Torsen LSD. A 6-speed manual is the sole transmission offered. Massive 6-piston Brembo brakes squeeze 15.5 inch front and 15 inch rear rotors. 19×10 and 19×11.5 inch rims are wrapped in bespoke Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. We’ll see this snake in the flesh at this week’s 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.

    Flat-plane crank? Really? Cue six billion whiny "It sounds like a Honda!" complaints from the V8 aural fetishists.

      @bball40dtw Yes, it will sound magnificent in real lifr, being the only V8 like Ferrari with a flat plane crank on the street. Any resemblance to Honda will be strictly in the minds of non-believers. Shriek plus basso profundo. Nice.

    4100+ pounds. Anyone want to take the under on this bet?

      @raph I forgot that the later GT500s dropped weight.

  • Bill Wade Norm, while true I'll leave you with this. My 2023 RAM is running Android 8 released in 2017.My wife's navigation on her GM truck is a 2021 release, I believe the latest. Android Auto seems to update very week or two. Now, which would you rather have? Anybody with a car a couple of years old NEVER sees any updates. Heck, if your TV is a few years old it's dead on updates. At least cell phones are rapidly updated. If your old phone won't update, buy another $200 phone. If your GM vehicle doesn't update do what, buy another $50,000 GM vehicle?
  • Lou_BC Once again, Mustang is the last pony car standing. Camaro RIP, Challenger RIP.
  • FreedMike Next up should DEFINITELY be the Cadillac Eldorado. On the subject of Caddies, I saw a Lyriq in person for the first time a couple of days ago, and I'm changing my tune on its' styling. In person, it works quite well, and the interior is very nicely executed.
