Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Debuts Aero Tweaks From The Upcoming GT500

2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

The 2019 Mustang Shelby GT350 will be available to customers in the United States starting in early 2019, with prices expected to start around the $50,000 mark and enrolment in a complimentary Track Attack driving program included in the cost of each vehicle.

New 19-inch aluminium wheels come equipped with GT350-specific Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres - 295/35 front and 305/35 rear - the tread pattern and compound both having been optimised for the auto. Also, unlike the non-Shelby models, the 2019 GT350 will not wear the new front end design, with the engineers sticking with the front end from the 2015-2017 model years.

Under the hood, we have the same 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V8 that continues to deliver 526-hp at 8,250rpm and 429 lb-ft (581 Nm) of torque.

Topline: In a press release Monday, Ford announced changes to the Shelby GT350 for the 2019 model year, and its nothing but good news for racing junkies.

Sticking with the performance theme, the GT350's suspension has has recalibrated springs and modified dampers.


Ford reveals GT350 updates, but the one change United Kingdom customers are waiting for remains elusive.

It has the most powerful naturally-aspirated engine Ford has ever unleashed in a production vehicle - a 5.2-liter V8 that revs to a howling 8250rpm and delivers a quoted 387kW and 583Nm, mated to a Tremec six-speed manual gearbox.

"It's a rewarding auto to drive on track for amateurs and pros alike, while making the driver feel like a superhero".

Borrowing aerodynamic advancements from the upcoming Shelby GT500, the refreshed GT350 benefits from an all-new rear spoiler and optional Gurney flap for improved downforce and reduced air resistance.

While numerous upgrades are focused on performance, Ford didn't overlook creature comforts. Those will include a new machined-aluminum instrument panel applique, new door panel inserts and a new power seat option. Buyers can also opt for factory-painted racing stripes in high-gloss Shadow Black, Oxford White or Kona Blue. You can buy one - but not in Britain - starting early 2019. What they can not opt for, though, is the same aesthetic or functional updates Ford made to the standard Mustang for this year. And that does make a degree of sense - unlike the standard Mustang's front fascia, the Shelby's is designed for heavy duty track work, channeling air where it's needed.
